Roses & Romance Weekend

Romance is in the Faire during our “Roses & Romance” Weekend. If you’re a hopeless romantic, you’ll fall in love with this weekend.

If you’re single, grab a “Single!” sticker at our entry gate and say hello to other Singles inside the Faire.

SATURDAY

Meet the Author: 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!

Visit our Market page to see our list of visiting authors.

Fairest of the All: Your mirror knows you’re the “Fairest of them all” but now is the time to prove it to your adoring public. The person who receives the most roses purchased for them at the Faire will be declared the winner at the end of this contest. Winner will receive a certificate to accompany their prize which includes a pair of tickets to return to the Faire and more! Roses can be purchased by anyone and awarded to a contestant leading up to and during the contest. Judges will limit the number of contestants based on the total number of roses already received at the start of the contest.
