Are firearms welcome?

Can I bring my firearm to the Renfest?

The RenFest is most likely the safest festival in Louisiana.

We shoot cannons every day of faire, have an amazing fireworks display on closing weekend, and on our pirate weekend our Albright pirates have a black powder gun fight and hijack the barge.

We have an amazing armed security which includes dozens of actual police officers; everyone can feel safe at the Louisiana Renaissance Festival. There is no need to bring your firearm, We do not permit Open Carry "firearms."  However, we do encourage open carry of swords, axes, straight bows, polearms, halberds, maces, and other Renaissance weapons (we can help you peace tie real weapons, at the front castle gate).
