The Tennessee Renaissance Festival is a celebration of Old England held each year during the month of May. The event is held on a farm near Triune, TN and is intended to simulate the 16th century English village of Covington Glen. The 2010 event was the 25th anniversary of the event, and also the first time that I attended. It wasn’t the last time though, I have been several times each year since!
Visitors can enjoy several different shows and concerts that are held at various times during the day, or they can partake of numerous concessions that are available. They can also just wander around and enjoy the sights much as I did.
Needless to say, the most interesting sight at the festival are the people themselves. An enormous amount of effort has gone into the costumes, and most of those I talked with spoke with an English accent, so they go all out to keep things as realistic as possible.
As always when I photograph events such as this, if any of the participants would like to have copies of any photographs I have taken of them all they have to do is Let Me Know. There will be no charge for the photographs, however they will have to verify to me that they are the subject of the photograph.
