The Carolina Renaissance Festival hosts a Time Travelers Weekend

CHARLOTTE, NC–You don’t need a passport to Time Travel to the 16th Century! Come as you are or dress as your favorite time-traveling character inspired by movies, TV, comic books, science fiction and/or fantasy. All costume genres welcome!

Children ages 5-12 are FREE with a donation of school supplies at the Parent-Teacher Magazine, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, and Classroom Central booths at the Festival entrance. (Children under 5 always free).

Be sure to also stop by the WCCB tent, this Saturday, at the entrance of the festival.  We will be giving away items from your favorite The CW shows!  We hope to see you there.

Win FREE Tickets for a return visit (and other prizes too) in the Time Traveler’s costume contest! Contest TBD for children and adult contests to follow immediately after at the Haven (located beyond the Edgewood Theatre).
