Texas Renaissance Festival
The Texas Renaissance Festival is the largest event of its kind in the country. It takes place over nine weekends on a 55-acre site in Todd Mission, which is about an hour outside of Houston. Participants, who dress in period costume, and attendees, some of whom also dress up, often stay at a large camping area next to the fairgrounds. The festival, referred to as TRF, features hundreds of vendors and performers, including comedy improv groups, musicians, jugglers and jousting knights.
