The Georgia Renaissance Festival is back for 2021 — and if you still have tickets from last year they are valid this year, along with a bonus. Details below.
The RenFest returns to Fairburn, GA, from Saturday, May 1, 2021 through June 13th, 2021. This is about a 30-minute drive from downtown Atlanta.
The festival is open on Saturdays and Sundays, plus Memorial Day Monday.
Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
There is quite a bit to do at the Georgia Renaissance Festival and it is a family-friendly event with plenty for the kiddos. It’s a rain or shine event, so dress accordingly and pack ponchos and umbrellas if the forecast leaves any doubt.
There is food and drink (with a Renaissance theme!) available for purchase. You’ll also find plenty of entertainment and an artisans market for shopping. If you’re interested in special themed weekends (pirates, fairy tales, wizards, etc.), you can see them here.
Full price admission at the gate is:
- Adults (13 and over) — $23.95
- Children 6 to 12 — $11.95
- Under 6 — FREE
- See the available discounts below
Parking is FREE!
6905 Virlyn B. Smith Rd.
Fairburn, GA 30213
You can get more information at the Festival website, including various ways to upgrade your experience, like the daily pub crawl and fairy tea party.
If you have tickets from 2020…
If you bought tickets before April of 2020, you can use them this year. They will be valid for any day of 2021 season. There’s also a bonus offer. If you have two tickets from last year, you can get two more for FREE. However many tickets you have, the RenFest will double it. You should be getting an email telling you about this offer, so watch for it.

Deals & Discounts for GA RenFest
Unfortunately, there are far fewer ways to save this year. We’re not seeing the opening weekend BOGO deal this year, for example.
The easiest ways to save money right now are through the encouraged online purchase, and through the Groupon offer, below.
NOTE that sales tax is added to tickets, and Big Tickets charges a fairly reasonable ticketing fee of about $1.60 per ticket.
When you buy tickets, you’ll choose mobile delivery or the print-at-home option.
Online purchase deal — up to $4 off
Buy online in advance and save $4 on adult admission (13+) and $2 on children’s admission (age 6 to 12).
That’s just $19.95 for adults and $9.95 for kids from 6 to 12. Kids five and under are always FREE.
This deal is good for any day of the festival.
NOTE: Online purchase is strongly encouraged in 2021. There will be a limited number of tickets available at the box office — so play it smart and buy in advance.
The Groupon deal — up to 29% off
While they last, you can get discounted tickets to the Georgia Renaissance Festival, thanks to a deal on Groupon.
With this deal, admission is just $17 for adults and $9 for kids age 6 to 12.
With Groupon there are no added fees and you don’t need a coupon code — just click the link and buy.
These prices are nearly 30% off regular price, and they are selling fast, so don’t delay!
NOTE: You can get up to 8% cashback from Rakuten (formerly Ebates) if you sign up and start a shopping session before you purchase your Groupon. You get the money at the end of each quarter and can have it sent to you via check or PayPal.
This deal gets you a general admission voucher for any weekend during the festival’s run, which is May 1st thru June 13th.
General admission includes access to all entertainment, the Jousting Tournaments, contests and special events, the Children’s Play Kingdom, the Royal Petting Farm, the Juggling School, and more.
Print your Groupon voucher in advance! You’ll need the paper document, because there is no wi-fi at the festival and the cell reception is said to be very spotty.
