The Central Missouri Renaissance Festival will be celebrating its 16th season in 2021. We will once again do 2 weekends in the spring. On the last weekend of April, the 24th & 25th and the first weekend of May, 5th and 6th. We will also close our season with one weekend in October, the 22nd & 23rd.

Over the past 7 years the festival witnessed a large period of construction with new roofs on stages, a new kitchen area, low-water bridge, the reconstruction of the Main Gate Tower, the beginning of a second Main Gate Tower, and the rebuilding of some of our vendor booths. Three years ago we added a new ticket booth, pass gate, a new children’s realm was started and a very nice jump on a Fae area. We invite our vendors to participate in this effort by constructing their own permanent booth spaces. If you are interested, please contact us for more information.

Craft Guild

The Central Missouri Renaissance Festival is actively looking for vendors willing to demonstrate and showcase the construction of their wares for our patrons. If this is something you might like to do, we might have room for you.


What is your craft? Are you a painter, sculptor, potter, wood worker, metal worker, leatherworker, or tailor? Let us know what type of craft you plan to display and demo. What your demo will be and if you need any extra room or anything special to put the demo on.




Handmade items (not assembled)


5 demo’s a day ( at least 30 min per demo; could be a continuation of one single item that you are working on through the day. If so, I would suggest to have others at stages so you can show new patrons what it has looked like while you are progressing;  assembly and cinching of items is not a demo)


Be able to explain what you are doing and preferably what they did back in the medieval times and the differences now.   If you are using more modern tools,  possibly show the difference if you have them to share.


Encourage hands on (if possible) and question… patron interaction is what we are looking for.


You must dress the part the best you can. There are plenty of resources out there to help find affordable costuming.  If needed, we will be happy to share links with you and ideas to help you achieve this.
