Festival on Parade!

The first-ever Michigan Renaissance Festival Food Parade

is a meandering drive-thru experience featuring

30 Festival Favorite Foods, Entertainment, Vendors

and a chance to support a Michigan Tradition!

Each vehicle ticket is $20 (fees extra, sales tax included), with proceeds supporting Michigan Renaissance Festival operations in a year when the cancellation of the fair leaves us without our revenue to maintain our facilities and prepare for next year’s fair.
