Fundraise at the Festival

The fundraising excitement continues to grow at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival! The festival has four methods to help your organization raise funds.


The 2017 Minnesota Renaissance Festival offers an exciting fundraising program involving over 100 different food & beverage booths ranging from a two person to a ten person booth depending on your fundraising goals. Last year over $550,000 was earned by organizations participating in the Food 4 Funds fundraising program. Individual organizations fund raised between $1,000 and $15,000!

The Food 4 Funds fundraiser involves running one or several Food and/or Beverage booths at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival for all 16 days of the festival. Your organization could earn its entire year’s fundraising goal in just 7 weekends. Groups earn a percentage of the booth(s) revenue. The earning potential is unlimited, not to mention the teamwork and fun your organization will experience.
