Popular family festival offers complimentary admission to Lebanon residents September 1

LEBANON, CT – The Connecticut Renaissance Faire invites all Lebanon residents to visit “New England’s Old England” during their Neighbor Appreciation Day on Saturday, September 1. 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 20th anniversary and we’re excited to invite Lebanon residents to see what we’re all about,” said Brian Harvard, General Manager of the Faire. “We received a lot of positive feedback from locals who attended last year’s Neighbor Appreciation Day and they returned several times afterward.”

The complimentary admission offer is good for the opening day of the Faire (September 1) 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.


The Connecticut Renaissance Faire is an enchanted recreation of a 16th-century harvest festival with continuous themed entertainment including jousting, armored combat, archery, games, comedy and more. Located east of Hartford and North of New London, The Connecticut Renaissance Faire is open rain or shine every Saturday and Sunday from September 1 to October 14 (plus Labor Day and Columbus Day Monday) on the Lebanon County Fairgrounds in Lebanon, Connecticut. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children (7-15). Children ages 6 and under are admitted at no cost. Advance tickets are available at or at the Faire’s box office on all days the Faire is open. For more information visit or phone 860-478-5954.
