Due to inclement weather coming to the Carolinas this weekend, the Carolina Renaissance Festival will not open on Saturday, October 1, 2022. For the safety of all workers and participants, the festival has postponed its opening day. There is still a possibility for the festival to open on Sunday, October 2, 2022, but that decision has not yet been made.

October 1 ticket holders will receive an automatic refund on October 1st. Sunday’s opening is still up in the air. The decision will be based on post weather conditions and will be announced on social media and the festival’s website. The Carolina Renaissance Festival is a medieval amusement park, theater, circus, food, and arts and crafts-filled experience. As Hurricane Ian works its way through the Carolinas, festival updates will continue to happen as the storm passes through. Be sure to stay up to date with all announcements through the festival’s social media and website.
