Archery helps maintain nature’s balance—hunters wield bows to keep deer populations in check, and Cupid’s arrows make deer fall in love.

Knights, pirates, and finely dressed damsels lay siege to Boster Castle for the sixth annual Central Missouri Renaissance Festival, a yearly celebration of medieval history, arts, crafts, and comedy set in a storybook village. Bring a personal recurve or self bow or borrow one from a resident merry man, before taking to the archery tournament to prove yourself worthy of the victor's prize and endorsement deals for branded tunics. Archers build appetites with every behind-the-back bull's-eye, only to slake them with exotic anachronistic eats including barbecue and kettle corn. Whilst dancing and clapping turkey legs to the sound of Celtic musical entertainment by 3 Pints Gone, carole your way past vendors proffering weapons, costumes, and other crafts as comedians craft laughs out of pure nothingness and magicians dabble in the dark art of handkerchief knotting.
Knights, lords, and ladies all find good reason to journey to Boster Castle, a permanent Renaissance village that also functions as a film studio and year-round festival space. The castle hosts elaborately staged annual festivals, transporting visitors to eras of the distant past. Patrons find themselves in the midst of a storybook Renaissance town populated by archery tournaments, turkey legs, crooning minstrels, and live comedy shows. Attendees can peruse vendors boasting authentic weaponry, period costumes, and the latest in chain-mail formal-wear. The castle also hosts additional themed socials in which revelers can sit for entertainment and fare surrounded by mythical cultures, fantasy worlds, or storied periods in history.
