The festival usually runs from the third week of August to the third week of October every year and includes a celebration of the autumn harvest.
As of 2008, American Renaissance festivals were much larger in scale than their European counterparts. Consuming History specifically mentions the Maryland Renaissance Festival for its high attendance, along with the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, which draws 250,000 visitors over three weeks, and the Bristol Renaissance Faire, which reached a peak in 1990 with 400,000 visitors in seven weekends.
