WIZARDS WEEKEND – SEPTEMBER 22, 23

Magic is in the air at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire. With plenty of enchanted and mystical goods to shop for you’re bound to find the item of your choice unless of course, the item chooses you instead. 

SATURDAY

Meet the Author

Meet the Author: Ashley York

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!

Learn more about the authors on our Meet the Author Page.
