Win Tickets to Renaissance Festival in August

Natural Awakenings Twin Cities is giving away tickets to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, in Shakopee. Publisher Jackie Flaherty is holding a drawing for five sets of two tickets to the festival, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., on weekends, from August 19 through October 1, plus Labor Day.

The Minnesota Renaissance Festival is an interactive outdoor recreation of a fictional, 16th-century English fantasy kingdom. A variety of events include 16 stages with live entertainment, games and activities, 250 artisan booths, food and beverages. Each weekend has its own theme and there is a wide array of things for children to do.

Drawings for the free tickets will be held randomly throughout August. Each winner will receive a pair of tickets. There will be five pairs of tickets (total of 10 tickets) given away during the month of August 2017 to be used any time at the 2017 Minnesota Renaissance Festival.
