The Carolina Renaissance Festival is a 16th century European style art and entertainment festival combining outdoor theater, circus entertainment, arts and crafts marketplace, a jousting tournament, a feast fit for royalty, and much much more.

The Carolina event has grown to be one of the largest of the Renaissance fairs nationwide. Tree lined lanes are filled with over 100 purveyors of crafts and food, and non-stop music and comedy shows are presented on 11 stages every event day.

This is one of the most interactive entertainment shows ever created with wonderful amusements and antics ongoing all around you! You can sit back and watch, or you can become a part of the action, surrounded by over 500 costumed characters roaming the festival village. The village lanes are full of peasants singing sea-faring songs and street entertainers surprising you with tall tales and tricks, each with a role to play.



Saturday, October 10 at Eight Sushi Asian Kitchen

Enjoy a live art show by Matt Moore and Matt Hooker as well as special guest DJ JHONV from 8pm-12am!

Creativity is at the core of all that Absolut does, so what better way to jazz up a night out than with a few brushstrokes of artistic expression? Absolut Art Party is a unique event where the night itself is used as a creative canvas.

Join them with boundary-pushing artists to transform the night with Art & Music.
Their music stems from their need to express their imagination, creativity and artistic vision. They aim to make music that transcends and takes you to another dimension, creating an experience beyond the earth and out of the ordinary that sticks with you long after the night is over, much like Absolut Nights.

Dance, Style and Persona. The result ? An awesome, out-of-the-box night that even the most weathered of party animals would be surprised (and amazed) at.
