2019 Euro Fest Recap
The 2019 Renaissance Euro Fest was one of, if not the best ever. We were blessed with wonderful weather and the spectator count estimate was the largest in the 11 year history of the Renaissance. Congratulations to all of the participants. They were all winners based on the smiles and excitement they created. The Legends of the Interstates, once again had a great turn out of German marques as they were entertained by the Soon To Be Famous Bavarian Band, The Delta Krauts.
Also the Hub City Highlanders Bagpipe and Drum Corps were a big hit as they marched into the Renaissance creating a great deal of excitement kicking off this year's event.
