The Minnesota Renaissance Festival began its journey in September of 1971 on a 22-acre field in Jonathan, Minn. More than 25,000 people visited the two weekend grand opening of the festival then named “A Celebration of Nature, Art, and Life!” That celebration has since relocated to Shakopee, Minn. and has grown to be the largest Renaissance Festival in the United States with an annual attendance of 300,000.
