If you’re looking for fun for the entire family, plan to attend the Great Plains Renaissance Festival that occurs for one weekend in the spring and the fall at Sedgwick County Park.
There'll be jousts and jests, knights and knaves, pirates and fairies. The Great Plains Renaissance Festival creates a medieval village with re-enactors who take visitors on a time trip to the days of chivalry. Performers, artisans, crafters and merchants display their talents and wares on the streets of the festival’s medieval fairground, vendors sell medieval food like turkey legs and visitors can participate in kids activities, cosplay contests and more.
An average visit to the festival lasts three to four hours, but you can easily spend the whole day here. Your festival ticket includes admission to the Wichita Highland Games, where you’ll learn about Scottish and Celtic history and culture and watch competitors do battle in events like the caber toss.
