Brewmance Weekend

If you like a cold craft brew this might just be the perfect weekend for you.

SATURDAY

Meet the Author – Alyssa Norton: Our “Meet the Author” event is just one more reason you need a season pass as we host a different fantasy author each and every day of our show. This is your chance to:

  • Get to know the author and let them know what you enjoy most about their book(s).
  • Buy a book and have it signed. You are also welcome to bring a book you’ve already purchased.
  • Snap a selfie if there is time. Be sure to hashtag it with #ctfaire on Facebook so they can see it later.
  • Cosplay a character from their book – we encourage it!

Deaf Awareness Day: We invite members of the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community to enjoy an interpreted day at the Faire. Finger Dancers from around New England join us to interpret a variety of shows for our friends who are Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing one day during National Deaf Awareness Week.

Mead Tasting Competition: Join us for the second annual Charter Oak Mead Cup – a MEAD magazine sanctioned mead competition. It is only $20 to participate as a popular vote judge sampling TEN 1 oz portions of entries. Judging begins at noon at the Pub Stage Building. A winner will be chosen and announced at 5 pm at the Faire and later on the Mead Magazine page. See contest rules here: http://meadmag.com/comps
