The Oklahoma City Renaissance Festival has designed our interactive Student Day to directly support your curriculum in the areas of:
Our Student Day is appropriate for all public, private and home schools. It is an amazing opportunity to immerse your students in the 16th-century while learning about the Renaissance time period. There will be lots to see and do while interacting with cast members including peasants and royalty. Our School Day adventure starts promptly at 9:00am with an opening ceremony at our main entrance and end at 2:30pm each school day.
There will be a full schedule of events published well in advance of the School day to help teachers and administrations prepare for the festival. The schedule will include live demonstrations, interactive lectures, music, magicians, artisans, crafters, and a royal joust!!
Best of all, this entire event is provided to you and your students free of charge.

What is the cost of admission?
Admission is FREE for all students, teachers, chaperones, and bus drivers . The Oklahoma City Renaissance Festival asks that for every 10 students there be a teacher/chaperone.
Will I receive tickets for each student?
After your registration is received and accepted the Festival will email you a confirmation voucher. The voucher is sent out by August 25th and indicates the number of students, and chaperones attending. The voucher will be turned in at the box office upon your arrival and the festival will release special armbands for your attendees. Student day armbands are valid only on that student day and serve as a ticket for your chaperones and students. Complimentary, Group and Renaissance Tickets purchased online are not valid on Student Day and Student Day armbands are not valid on regular festival days.
What do I bring to the Festival gate on day of the field trip?
Bring a copy of your voucher. Be sure the Teacher or Chaperone with the voucher is located at the front of your group. DO NOT BLOCK THE PATHWAYS. Please group your students away from the ticket booth area so that only the person with the voucher comes to the ticket booth. Please make sure the group is off the main path and onto the grassy areas.
Where should my students meet at the end of the day?
Have your students meet you outside the Front Gate or at another location inside the Festival. Please do not have your students meet you at the Front Gate of the Festival - this area gets very congested at the beginning and end of the day. It is best to designate a landmark that your students can easily find. Please do not block the pathways.
