The Minnesota Renaissance Festival will be better than ever in 2023!

On behalf of Mid-America Festivals we have exciting news to share. The Scott County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved amendments proposed by Mid-America Festivals Corporation to its Conditional Use Permit., giving Mid-America Festivals Corporation, which organizes the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, the green light for the 2023 Minnesota Renaissance Festival. The Minnesota Renaissance Festival will be better than ever in 2023 as we incorporate several new protocols to benefit the experience for the Renaissance community as well as our neighbors.

Mid-America Festivals Corporation will provide regular updates as they become available. The Minnesota Renaissance is committed to the following:

  • A robust busing program designed and developed by a professional transit expert to ensure convenient and ample opportunities to travel to and from the Festival by bus.
  • Limited onsite parking will be available incorporating a date specific pre-paid voucher system.
  • A premiere professional parking firm retained to design, direct and manage an improved parking plan.
  • Many other improvements.

Festival management wishes to express thanks to Scott County staff, the governing bodies of both Scott County and Louisville Township, and the local residents and business owners for their time and efforts in reaching a workable plan and appreciate their continued support and commitment to the continuation of our great Minnesota Family Tradition.

More information on parking vouchers and busing plans coming soon!
