We are so happy you have decided to join us at The Maiden Faire Renaissance Festival in 2021. The nearest city is Farmington, Missouri (pop. approx 20,000). Farmington, the county seat of St. Francois County, offers residents and visitors a variety of activities, dining, and shopping.
Stroll down the sidewalks of the downtown area to enjoy delicious coffee, unique shopping experiences, fine dining, and nighttime entertainment. If serenity is more your style, relax at one of the area's wineries, or drop a line in a nearby lake. 
The Farmington area, and surrounding towns, Desloge, Park Hills, Bonne Terre, Fredericktown, among others, offer even more opportunities for fun. Be sure to visit our local sponsors while you're in the area:
