  • We go to the festival almost every year. This year the weather was great and the crowds were not too big. I suggest going to one of the early weekends as the crowds are smaller early.  more »
  • I have been going here for so long it feels like visiting family when I talk with the cast and friends working in the shops. I love the shopping for finding one of a kind gifts. The cast are very people friendly with everyone and are well versed in the roles they live out while at Reval Grove.
  • Look forward to this every year!!!!!!!!! Such a great place to have fun with my friends and family. Employees are in character and always happy to help. Safe in the summer heat as water is readily provided. Jousting has changed over the years and become more of an entertaining show, than brutal sport. But still awesome. So many things to see, and join in on. RIP Johnny Fox, “water from India” is a common phrase spoken in my home because of him.
