The 2020 Festival season was cancelled not just TN but the majority of all renfaires were cancelled.. If you would like to support the vendors that have lost their show please visit their online shops. There is a list here, Renaissance Festival Relief

Many of the entertainers are preforming online via Twitch and facebook. I have made a schedule of TN Reniassanee acts here. I also have a schedule of acts from across the festival circut on the Renaissance Festival Relief page .

   During the Festival, Triune is known as Covington Glen, The village of Covington Glen is filled with several characters. Merchants, peasants, and entertainers walk the streets. Fairies wander between the trees. Royality and Nobilty visit the village.

The Festival is held in a beautiful wooden area with lots of shade.

No pets or glass allowed on the festival grounds

Entertainment

There are five entertainment stages plus a tournament field with Jousts and Human Chess. Street performers travel the roads and artisans demonstrate their skills.

Faire Feature:
 The Festival is held on the grounds of Castle Gwynn, a residental castle. The owners provide tours during the festival's run.
In 2008 Taylor Swift’s music video, Love Story, was shot at the Castle.
