The Ohio Renaissance Festival is more than just a place to drink beer.

There’s a myriad of other reasons to visit the 15th annual festival held in Harveysburg, Ohio.

According to the festival Web site, it features an “authentic permanent 30-acre English village” where the entertainment takes place along with “12 stages and a unique open-air Shopper’s Marketplace with over 130 merchants and demonstrating craftsmen.”
