Catapult your family into the past at the annual Connecticut Renaissance Faire. Experience this enchanted recreation of a 16th-century harvest festival. Here you'll rub elbows with kings and queens as you explore a bustling marketplace. Watch continuous themed entertainment on nine stages including a real joust! Who knew history could be so exciting!?
Here is some of what the Faire has in store for you:
Shop in New England's largest Medieval Marketplace filled with thousands of gift treasures sure to bring a smile. Watch shows on numerous stages around the faire. Hear music from an age lost to time and learn traditional dances. See live-flight birds of prey demonstrations. Watch a master archer's skillful demonstration of the English longbow. Learn what life was like for a knight or peasant at educational camps. Feast like a king on turkey legs and other fares sweet and savory. Wash it down with a cold one from Thimble Island Craft Brewery. "Once upon a time," becomes the here and now as you compete in archery and ax-throwing contests. Get your face painted or adorn yourself with henna and hair braiding. Your family adventure awaits!
Email Verified Fire Joust!
The faire transforms after dark. There are special shows, trick-or-treating, costume contests, and a really unique joust with special effects and pyrotechnics. I've been to every one for years, it's a Halloween tradition. I would never miss it!
