Michigan Renaissance Festival | Holly, Michigan
At the end of each summer, just as we are starting to wind down and prepare for back to school, the Michigan Renaissance caravans its way back into town. This magical event always marks the end of summer for us – but it also offers one last huzzah.
Each year we look forward to the faire making its way back into town – bringing along with it queens, trolls, fairies, shopping, and entertainment. This year, along with the past well-loved parts, the Michigan Renaissance Festival has a few newly added treasures.
