When the Arizona Renaissance Festival opens February 9th near Apache Junction, it will do so for the 25th time in its storied history.

This year alone, over 250,000 people are expected to walk through the Festival's doors.

"We offer a different kind of entertainment, in that, it's a comedy club and an unplugged amusement park," said spokesperson Tory Steller.

"Walk among more than 2,000 brightly costumed actors, dancers, and musicians who roam the medieval replica village. Browse over 200 elaborately adorned shops offering an array of traditional goods surrounded among 12 stages of entertainment," according to the Festival's website.

The event runs every weekend and President's Day through March 31st.
