The Connecticut Renaissance Faire
Saturdays & Sundays August 31 – October 14, 2019 Plus Labor Day & Columbus Day 10:30am – 6pm

Fantasy takes flight when you step back to the past at The 21st Annual Connecticut Renaissance Faire. It’s a time to play and unwind, to feast and drink, and a time to celebrate life the old-fashioned way. Watch shows on stages throughout the Faire, listen to minstrels and performers playing in the streets, and experience the ageless, old-world charm of a 16th-century village filled with laughter, romance, and good, old-fashioned family fun.

The Faire takes place on the Lebanon County Fairgrounds at 122 Mack Road in Lebanon, CT.  [Get Directions]
