Passport to History 

The Passport to History fun patch program is an interactive educational experience for children of all ages and is great for Scouts, Y-Guides, and similar youth organizations!  

Immersed into life during the Renaissance, children build character and confidence as they learn lessons of art, chivalry, honor, nobility, and just how far modern day has come.  The "passport" is an educational workbook guiding children through village activities that educate and entertain.

Topics include: The Ancient Sports of Jousting, Greyhound Coursing, and Archery.  Renaissance Clothing, Fashion, Customs, Language, and Manners.  And life as a Renaissance Merchant Trader.  Children that complete 5 of the 10 listed activities earn a Carolina Renaissance Festival fun patch!  

About the Carolina Renaissance Festival

The Carolina Renaissance Festival is a theatrical facsimile of a fictional 16th century European trading village called Fairhaven.  The Festival opens for its 23rd annual season, Saturdays & Sundays, October 1st - November 20th.  The Festival features over 300 costumed participants, representing various entertainments of the time - including jugglers, jousting knights in armor, rope walkers, dancers, villagers, peasants, historical characters and a variety of musicians.  Over 100 artisans fill the village, working in mediums such as glass blowing, pottery, leather work, sculpture, candle making - just to name a few.  The crafts and entertainments combine with thematic games and foods to create a glimpse of marketplace celebrations and life in the 16th century.
