May 2019

At the sometimes-scorching beginning of summer, a curious transformation happens at the Castle of Muskogee. Thousands of ordinary people morph into a fantastic spectrum of kings, queens, heroes, heroines, and other circa 1569 northern England residents. This is the magic of the Oklahoma Renaissance Festival. The castle and its grounds offer a self-consciousness-free-zone where earnest attendees sing along, sip mugs of mead, and merrily wave their turkey legs in the sweltering air. Liberate ye inner lord or lady and revel in one of the most wonderful events that northeastern Oklahoma has to offer.
