Charging warhorses and thunderous hoof beats mark the start of Hawk Creek Wildlife Center’s Wild Renn Fest July 14, 15, 21, and 22, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The 25th annual festival is highlighted by nationally-renowned television host Jarod Miller of Animal Exploration, the brave knights of Brothers in Arms Jousting, and the aerial acrobatics of free-flying birds during The Royal Tournament.
Miller will share his diverse wildlife from around the world during his show and meet and greet session. Professional full-armored jousters will duel on horseback for their rights to the fair maidensof the land. Majestic birds of prey will soar directly overhead during the thrilling free flying bird shows. Young dragonologists can explore the fact versus fiction of these scaly beasts and receive a free token to begin their own dragon collection (supplies limited).
Medieval naturalists will be dispersed throughout the festival grounds for up-close encounters with local and exotic wildlife. Entertainers, delicious food, an art auction, and continuous live music are only the tip of the sword. Enter the realm of the Bald Eagle in Walk with the Eagles™, where guests have the unique opportunity to stand face-to-face with our national symbol and capture its fierce beauty on camera.
