Eat, drink, and be merry at the Georgia Renaissance Festival, returning to Fairburn, GA, from Saturday, April 15th to Sunday, June 4th in 2023. 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.
Prices are quite a bit higher this year, so be sure to check out the discounts.
Full price admission at the gate is:
- Adults (13 and over) — $29.95
- Children 6 to 12 — $16.95
- Under 6 — FREE
- See the available discounts below
Parking is FREE!

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.
We’re also hoping for a Groupon offer, and we’ll update if it appears.
NOTE that sales tax is added to tickets, and Big Tickets charges a fairly reasonable ticketing fee of about $2 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 $3 on adult admission (13+) and children’s admission (age 6 to 12).
That’s just $26.95 for adults and $13.95 for kids from 6 to 12. Kids five and under are always FREE.
This deal is good for any day of the festival.

Memorial Day weekend deals
According to the website, there is FREE admission on Memorial Day Monday at the box office for active military, veterans, first responders, fire fighters, and police officers.
The Groupon deal — up to 29% off
Groupon is not yet running this deal in 2023 — but we expect it to return, and we will update you!
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.

I’m not familiar with military discharge papers, but the deal states it will give free admission to all active and retired (inactive) military members, with a valid military ID. If you have an ID that shows a history of service, I would think they would honor the deal for you.

Does the Memorial Day discount include all veterans (those with DD-214)?
