One of the things we love to do this time of the year is to visit the St Louis Renaissance Festival at  Rotary Park in Wentzville, MO.  It is a great time for those of us who love to dress up or who just like to people watch to enjoy a day outdoors and this year was no exception.

What Is The St Louis Renaissance Festival?

The St Louis Renaissance Festival is a festival, Medieval in nature, an outdoor event that tends to create a historical setting. It is a chance for visitors to enjoy the outdoors and visit different booths that for the most part, are more Medieval in nature. It is also an opportunity for people to dress in a Renaissance or Medieval fashion, although you might find other types of costumes, and just be silly and have fun.

The St Louis Renaissance Festival is held annually at the Rotary Park in Wentzville, MO, and is a cherished event held in the fall of each year. It is a vibrant event, offering engaging activities and is a remarkable experience for those who enjoy historical costumes and people-watchers. This year’s event was another delightful occasion and chance to spend time outdoors.

The weather this year was just right, not hot, and not cold, somewhere in between. We elected not to dress up this year (we both do have costumes to wear for the event), but rather just spent time watching others who had dressed for the event.

There were many different booths featuring different items available for sale, and food and drinks… as well as entertainment. I believe everyone had a great time. I know we did. I am posting a couple of photos for you to enjoy.
