Take a trip back in time at Renaissance Festival

Citizen Staff Writer

Knights in shining armor are coming to Arizona.

The 21st annual Arizona Renaissance Festival & Artisan Market Place has all the potential to transport you from the desert to the days of Camelot.

Complete with a 12-stage theater upon which belly dancers will sway and jokers will jest, the annual festival has a little something for every member of the family.

One of the main highlights is the jousting tournament. Two tons of horse, knight and armor gallop onto the field prepared to do battle with 10-foot lances for a lady’s honor.

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through March 29.

Ticket prices are: adults $18 in advance, $20 at box office; $17 for seniors; $6 for ages 5-12; free for ages 4 and younger. Parking is free. The festival will be at the Festival Village, 12601 E. U.S. Highway 60 in Apache Junction.

For more information, call 520-463-2700

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
