Frighteningly Fun

We’re so excited we could scream! Why? Because the Connecticut Renaissance Faire is hosting a “Hocus Pocus Halloween Party” on the evening of October 13, 2018. Join us for a wicked good time… if you dare! If you’re 18 or over, you can enjoy the Faire by day and then come to our crypt after final revels once the bell tolls 6 times. It will be an evening of evil elixirs, dancing, and a special Hocus Pocus show to die for.  [Click here to visit our Facebook Event for up-to-the-minute info.]
* Halloween Costumes required for the Hocus Pocus Halloween Party. This special after-hours event has its own ticket and includes same-day admission to the Faire. Get tickets now!

Host: Summer Orlando

The queen has arrived. The talented Summer Orlando hosts the evening’s festivities with brilliant comedy, catchy tunes, and wit that will have you laughing ‘til you cry.

Hocus Pocus Live

Sexy. Witty. Beautiful. Everybody is talking about this high-energy musical comedy act. Sit back and enjoy some great sets accompanied by heavy innuendo. You couldn’t ask for a better way to spend the night. ** This show is different than the version that runs earlier during the same Faire day.

Costume Contest

It’s lives! If you’re looking for Halloween thrills, our adult Halloween Costume Contest may be shocking. You can watch our costume contest from the audience or take part to win big prizes:

  • Best overall: $300 cash prize
  • Scariest: $100 cash prize
  • Sexiest: $100 cash prize

If you are planning to participate in the adult costume contest and are arriving during regular Faire hours, please make sure adult costumes are appropriately covered.

Rules: You must be 18 or older to participate in this contest. A photo ID will be requested by judges before you may enter. While costumes are “adult” in nature, intentional nudity/exposure is not allowed. Judges will work with the audience to narrow the contestants down to finalists and then winners.

DJ & Dancing

Our DJ will help prove that even the dead can dance. Join us for a graveyard smash of songs you’ll mash the night away to. 


Treat yourself to hot food and cold drinks available for purchase during the show. You must be 21+ to purchase or consume alcohol (ID mandatory for all ages. Don’t forget yours.). Please drink responsibly and use a designated driver.
