✨New✨ Nature-Based Playground
We’re thrilled to introduce our brand-new nature-based playground as part of our 2023 park expansion, where kids can connect with the natural world while having loads of open-ended, non-structured play time.
PLUS, look what our new extension uncovered: Meet our enchanting mascots – Mirth and Whimsy, two delightful rabbit characters that embody the spirit of adventure and imagination. Their backstory is as charming as they are. Once mere doodles in the margins of a monk’s manuscript, they sprang to life through the power of the monk’s yearning for adventure beyond his monastery walls.
Brought to life by his vivid dreams, Mirth and Whimsy now exist to guide our youngest visitors on their own journeys of discovery and fun. Keep your eyes peeled for these delightful rabbit mascots on signs, our printed program, and other elements around the festival. When you spot Mirth and Whimsy, you can be assured that a child-friendly attraction or activity awaits. Whether it’s a thrilling ride, a captivating show, or a tasty treat, Mirth and Whimsy are your friendly guides to all the family-oriented fun that the Ohio Renaissance Festival has to offer.
So, let’s hop into the adventure with Mirth and Whimsy, where imagination comes to life!
