Puttin’ the Tide back in Yuletide

Huntersville, NC – Don’t miss an opportunity to find unique holiday gifts at the Carolina Renaissance Festival. In honor of the upcoming holiday season, the Festival presents A Pirates’ Christmas on November 9 and 10.

Early holiday shoppers are encouraged to plunder the Festival’s Artisan Marketplace for arts and crafts.  Attendees that purchase $250.00 in booty will be rewarded with two FREE tickets (a $52.00 value) to return on the Festival’s remaining two weekends of the 2019 season; to be held on November 16, 17, 23 and 24.

Over 140 craft shops provide a diverse selection of handmade gift items such as pottery, jewelry, perfume, glass blown ornaments, smoking ceramic dragons, bath & body products, medieval costumes, candles, unique musical instruments, children’s toys, a full spectrum of clothing, and more.

Special Pirate entertainments are scheduled that include the music of The Pirates Royale, sword fighting lessons by the Pirate Sword Conservatory, and a Pirate costume contest with prizes for adults and children.  And Zilch the Torysteller presents an unique version of an old holiday favorite; The Night before Christ Moose.  And don’t miss the cute holiday greeting card photo opportunity at the recently added Sea Fairies – Swimming Mermaid exhibit – a Pirate’s favorite!
