Millions of folks of all ages have walked through the turnstiles over the years to find the most pastoral of baseball pastimes, spring training. Pleasant temperatures and bountiful sunshine complement the intimate experience that only spring training offers, from meeting your favorite players to enjoying unique time with your family and friends. The Cactus League invites you to experience spring training, a beloved Arizona treasure.

What: The Arizona Renaissance Festival is a medieval amusement park, a 13-stage theater, a 30-acre circus, an arts and crafts fair, a jousting tournament and a feast, all in one non-stop, day-long family adventure. You never know what you will find on or off the stage. The Festival is an outdoor event that combines entertainment and wares reminiscent of what may have been found in a 16th Century European village market celebrating the arrival of the King and Queen to their shire. Walk through the gates to be transported back to a simpler more jovial time. Mingle with over 2,000 costumed characters, eat a giant roasted turkey leg, take part in games of chance and skill, cheer on your favorite knight, or select a handcrafted rose for that special someone. Eat Drink and be Merry is the order of the day at the Village of Fairhaven.


Where: Festival Village, 12601 E Highway 60, Gold Canyon, AZ 85118


When: Every Saturday and Sunday, 10:00am – 6:00pm, through April 2, 2017
