Popular family festival offers complimentary admission to Lebanon residents September 2

REGIONAL – The Connecticut Renaissance Faire invites all Lebanon residents to visit “New England’s Old England” during their Neighbor Appreciation Day on Saturday, September 2. General Admission is free for residents this day with proper ID. Child residents must be accompanied by a parent or guardian from Lebanon.

“It’s our 19th anniversary and we’re glad to take the show back to Eastern Connecticut where the fun all began,” said Brian Harvard, General Manager of the Faire. “We’ve come a long way since our humble beginnings in Putnam and Woodstock and our guests are going to love our new location on the Lebanon Fairgrounds.”

The complimentary admission offer is good for opening day of the faire (September 2) for a single general admission purchased at the front gate; qualifying patrons age 16 and older, who would normally pay $15, will be admitted at no cost. Residents must provide proof of Lebanon residency at the time of purchase. Acceptable forms of ID include a driver’s license or state-issued ID bearing a Lebanon address, or a household bill (electric, gas, water, etc.) bearing a Lebanon address.

Renaissance Faires are filled with countless photo opportunities, but sometimes there just isn’t time to get someone out there before the story needs to launch or the budget just isn’t there to send anyone.
