The Alabama Renaissance Faire is a not-for-profit, non-commercial faire, organized by a Roundtable of volunteers who plan all year to transform Wilson Park in Florence, Alabama, into Fountain-on-the-Green. Faire-goers celebrate their favorite time periods from the 12th through the mid-17th centuries, as Vikings hobnob with Buccaneers and fairies frolic with pirates. The official Renaissance faire of Alabama is family-friendly and educational with no admission charge or alcohol. Come be part of our 35,000 visitors during the fourth weekend in October.
Our Faire became the official Alabama State Renaissance Faire in 1988 by Legislative Act no.88-43.
- The faire takes place from 10:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. The admission is FREE. Parking is FREE. Food and Souvenirs are NOT Free.
- We are an all-volunteer event. Those who work for the faire as staff earn no money from the event. They simply have a love of the time period and a desire to share that love with others within the community. Even our director is a volunteer.
- Our faire is smaller compared to many commercial faires; but what we lack in size, we more than make up for in atmosphere and good down-home southern hospitality.
The Alabama Renaissance Faire is held in downtown Florence at Wilson Park – on the corner of Tuscaloosa Street and Wood Avenue. Florence, Alabama is located 120 miles south of Nashville; 145 miles east of Memphis; and 125 miles north of Birmingham.
