Visiting Texas: The Texas Renaissance Festival in Todd Mission, TX

Hey Butterflies. Attending the Texas Renaissance Festival has been on my "To Do At Least Once List" for a while now and I finally decided to go last weekend and I'm really glad I did, it was a good experience. 

The Texas Renaissance Festival is a Renaissance fair that was first held in the 70's and is now held annually in Todd Mission, Texas. The TRF is usually open on Saturday, Sunday, & Thanksgiving Friday during the months of October and November. Each week has a different theme and attendees dress in costumes according to the theme for that weekend, I went on the Barbarian Invasion weekend and I really enjoyed it.

Tickets into the fair are about $30 for adults and $15 for children age 5-12 ( children 4 and under are free). Kids 12 and younger are admitted free of charge every Sunday, so if you're looking for something to do on a budget as a family, this would be great! General parking is free, preferred parking costed $10 if you purchase it in advance online and $15 at the gate (shuttles pick you up and drop you off at your car).

I suggest  wearing comfortable clothes/shoes because you'll be doing a lot of walking and plan to run into traffic once you get closer to the fair; it should have taken about an hour for me to get from North Houston to the fair grounds but it took almost two hours because of TRF traffic. Camping is allowed on the fair grounds which is probably the smarter choice if you want to avoid the long drive and traffic but be sure to check the TRF website for camping information and rules before you go. There's just so much to see, do, and eat at the Texas Renaissance Festival, how could you not enjoy it? Definitely a worthwhile experience. The TRF fair grounds are located at 21778 FM 1774, Todd Mission, TX 77363.

Also, if you're really into the whole Renaissance thing, you could host your wedding at the fair. There's four wedding packages to choose from, which includes pretty much everything you need to host a wedding. I'm honestly thinking about having my vows renewed at the fair, that would make for one interesting wedding story right? Huzzah!
