Florida Renaissance Festival Canceled

In an abundance of caution, and acknowledging the expressed concerns and state of uncertainty regarding COVID-19, Broward County has decided to cancel the last two weekends of the Renaissance Festival, March 21 and 22, and March 28 and 29.

The Renaissance was a fascinating period in history when Europe made the transition from the Dark Ages into the modern era. The transformation was marked by revelry and excess in costume and cuisine, which are demonstrated each year in a reenactment at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach. The 2020 Florida Renaissance Festival marks the event's 28th anniversary.
