CT Renaissance Faire

September 3rd – October 16th, 2022 
Every Saturday & Sunday, Plus Labor Day and Columbus Day Monday

The Annual Connecticut Renaissance Faire is an enchanted recreation of a 16th-century harvest festival as one might have been in the days of yore. Here you can feast like a king on turkey legs and local craft brews, shop like a queen in New England’s largest Medieval Marketplace or laugh like a fool at continuous shows performed on ten stages throughout the village. All the kingdom is a stage with performances on stage and in the street. Costumes are encouraged, but not required.
Come as you are or as you wish to be!

$15 for adults 16+; $10 for 7-15y; Kids under 6 - free!
