The Minnesota Renaissance Festival is a really cool festival that you can check out every year in Shakopee, but I had no idea it was the largest of its kind in the entire country!

According to Only in Your State, the Minnesota Renaissance Festival is the largest Renaissance festival in the country. If you've never been to the Renaissance Festival, there are tons of cool things to check out while you're there.

There are all sorts of shows to watch including great comedy shows. Fun fact: Penn and Teller's first show together was doing a comedy show at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival! There are also cute shops, delicious food, characters dressed in pretty incredible 16th-century costumes throughout the festival, and other awesome things to check out while you're there. There's also a parade every day at 11:30 AM.

Ticket prices start at $21.95 for adults and $13.95 for kids, but it looks like you can get discount tickets on their website! They're open on the weekends now through September 29th plus Labor Day and Festival Friday on September 27th. Hours are 9 AM - 7 PM rain or shine!
