Ren Fest sets new attendance record

Louisiana Renaissance Festival celebrates record breaking attendance during its 20th season

Hammond, LA (November 19, 2019)---The Louisiana Renaissance Festival experienced record-breaking attendance during its popular Celtic weekend held Sat., Nov. 16 and Sun., Nov 17.

More than 13,000 guests from around the country enjoyed a bagpipe and drum competition as well as Scottish heavy athletics like the caber toss, to celebrate Scottish and Celtic culture.


There are still three-themed weekends of merriment in 2019 to enjoy the historic 20th season of the best festival in history!

Enter the gates of Albright, a fictional re-creation of a 16th century village. Patrons will want to spend the entire day exploring the 16-acre landscape filled with knights, musicians, jugglers, storytellers, sword-fighters, and you may even see Queen Elizabeth I.

Some of the most sought-after events are the joust and birds of prey. You'll find a variety of food from turkey legs to chocolate-covered cheesecake on a stick--treats that are sure to please everyone in your group!

“With more than 65 shows and 100 merchants, you simply cannot see it all in one day so be sure to wear comfortable shoes,” said Alvon Brumfield, CEO.
