Nestled in the rolling hillside and virgin forest of Middle Tennessee, the village of Covington Glen echoes with sounds of Renaissance music and merrymaking. Accented by the bright medieval towers of Castle Gwynn.
The year is 1558 and England is in turmoil. Mary Tudor is Queen. Her half sister, Princess Elizabeth has been granted permission to attend her favorite village – Covington Glen – to attend a grand festival. The visit is highlighted by the drama of full-armored jousting, a shopping marketplace featuring over 70 artisans’ and craftsman’s unique wares, man-powered rides and games of skill. Culinary adventures abound with savory foods, beverages and confections. Festival patrons can enjoy a selection of professional entertainment including music, comedy, stage acrobatics, pirate show and Knight Wing, a master falconer.
The will be held the first four weekends in May plus Memorial Day.
