Louisiana Renaissance Festival in Hammond every weekend through December 11
If you ever wanted to take a step back in time, travel out to Hammond for the annual Louisiana Renaissance Festival.
The event has grown so big that it’s essentially a mini theme park with an entire English village featuring over 100 shops, 50 shows and dozens of demonstrations every day. There are shows with comedy, drama and action (including real jousting!) and you can meet characters like peasants, merchants, nobles, kings and even Queen Elizabeth. There are also special theme weekends.
The Louisiana Renaissance Festival runs every Saturday and Sunday through December 11. For more information and a full schedule of events, visit the web site.
