The international award-winning Florida Renaissance Festival held at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach, welcomes students and educators to step back in time to learn about this fascinating period in history. Our School Day Program brings 16th Century Europe to life in a fun way that is appropriate for all ages. Costumed performers, stage acts and craft vendors will offer students an informative view of the Renaissance while blacksmith, glassblowing, culinary, apothecary and encampment demonstrations bring history to life. So much fun and educational, we call it “Edutainment”!!!
