TODD MISSION, Texas--()--The Texas Renaissance Festival, the nation’s largest and most acclaimed festival of its kind, announces the completion of multiple festival improvements for the upcoming festival season, which will run every weekend from October 12 – December 1, 2013.
Noteworthy changes include a new stage for the 2013 festival. The Falconer Heath will create an opportunity for unseen performances and original entertainment. There will be a brand new Fairy Princess Venue, where the Festival's Fairy Princess will make wishes come true. Moreover, a facelift is also being planned for the arena dais, the place where the Royal Court observes the jousting events.
The Texas Renaissance Festival will also celebrate the beginning of a new season with several improvements to the Fields of New Market campsite. 2013 will host an array of additions to the camp grounds, including shower facilities, possible RV pads and expanded premium camping, which allows true Renaissance buffs to camp closer to the front gates, assuring that they have the best access to the festival during daylight hours.
Other improvements include a new water loop around the festival and road improvements. Among evening out the roads, the Texas Renaissance Festival plans to expand traffic lanes exiting the festival to cut back on congestion during high-attendance weekends. The festival also plans to add to additional premium parking.
All improvements and additions are set to be completed before the opening of this year’s festival, October 12, 2013. For more information, please visit www.texrenfest.com or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
