Athough not a restaurant (as it is indicated by this site), they do have varieties of food native to various cultures. I have been going to this festival for years before I purchased a booth on the property. If you want to hit a place...More
IT'S LIKE TAKING A TRIP TO A TOTALLY DIFFERENT PLACE IN TIME!!!
This is the largest Renaissance Fest in the US. TRF features approximately 500 costumed actors performing on 25 stages.
It has over 350 on-site shops which include: international food purveyors, unique artisans, merchants...More
We have attended the TRF three times over the past 12 years. What fun. So well organized. Very inexpensive for the entertainment you get. Food choices are endless. Safe. Not overcrowded. Take a shuttle bus and totally avoid the parking. 100% handicap ready. Best to...More
TRF is on every rennie's bucket list. I went for my second time this year and wished I could have camped out there the rest of the year.
The camping is great (there is so much room everywhere!) and it's only a short walk to...More
For some reason Trip Advisor thinks this is a restaurant. It's not. It's a seasonal theme park.
Like many conventions the festival has expanded in such a way that many visitors will dress in non-renaissance fashion, like batman, steampunk, etc. I love that. So much...More
Had a great time yesterday at this Ren Fest. It was "Celtic Christmas" weekend, and the atmosphere was awesome! Went with my wife and fifteen-year-old son. We all had a great time! The shows, the food, the music, the shops . . . it's all...More
This location is a yearly “back in time” camping trip for the family and it never disappoints. In fact, I feel it gets better and better every year!
If you’re looking to take a trip to the past, this is where you want to go!...More
Went here for a wedding. First time ever going to a renaissance festival. It was fun to see all of the shops and the vendors. A lot of people were dressed up in costume which was fun to see. The wedding was in the rose...More
Texas Renaissance Festival is an annual event held near Magnolia, Texas, about an hour’s drive northwest of Houston. Set to an historical theme, this festival presents an excellent opportunity to don your favorite costume and let loose for a day of food, drink, art, and...More
A day at RenFest is like a day at theme park...with fewer rides, cleaner bathrooms, and more people in costumes. The biggest decisions of your day will be what to eat and how to be entertained and there are no bad options for either. I...More

We've been to both multiple times. Although both are fun and fairly similar, TRF is much better. It has been around much longer and has better atmosphere. The buildings are mostly permanent. They have a lot more food choices. The entertainment is better and there are more shows and demonstrations to watch and participate in. The shade is a big factor in the Texas heat and there is plenty of it at TRF. Not so much at SF. Parking is much better at TRF although the best idea is to take the shuttle from Magnolia. Pick it up at any hotel. It's free and it runs every half hour.

The answer is, it depends. Yes food is expensive, but not as much as at professional ball games. Next is souvenirs. Everything from really cheap (less than $3) to the sky's the limit. They have excellent costuming you will find hard to get elsewhere. Edges weapons of all kind from cheap to high grade combat pieces. Unique items for home and yard decor. You have to appreciate that there are many fine craftsmen at both TRF and SC. My wife and I have never spent more than $100 each on food, shows, drinks, and trinkets. Of course I did see a Knights helmet and shirt of chain mail that I really wanted for everyday wear. It was only $1800. Somehow I didn't get out with it, but the wife did get some nice wind chimes to hang in one of the trees for about $40. By the way, the hotels in Magnolia have discount tickets to get into the place if you stay at their place. Saved us quite a bit. Also the free shuttle saved us a lot of walking.
