Good, free wine tastings.

Free tastings can't be beat, especially when there are so many choices. Some I liked, some I didn't, but that's the same no matter where you go. It's all a personal taste thing.

I've been coming to the Ren Faire since it cost $8 to get in (yes, I was an infant!) We make the trip from Pittsburgh because I think it's such a wonderful experience; a whole day of live, interactive theatre. When I first came, those many years ago, I felt like I was in a Monty Python movie,and what's not... More

This is the 2nd time that I've been to the pirate invasion and it was awesome!!!! I loved the whole feel of it there. To see all the shops and people in costume is amazing. How you can interact with every one is just really good. And how you can dress up and be anyone you want to be makes... More

This was our third year back. Enjoy all the shows and watching and learning from the different trades. Just too much to take in one day. You need to take the weekend to take all in. We recommend pre planning your visit. So you are not so overwhelmed and attend the opening at the king 's court. You won't be... More

first time visiting the winery and renaissance fair, had a great time watching the various shows, tasting wine, people watching all the various characters walking around made for a fun day. No stress parking, easy entry and exit, if you go pre purchase your tickets it expedites entry into grounds. Did a wine tasting at booth on grounds and they... More

We were a group of 17, Everyone enjoyed it. Many attractions, good food and sippy cups of wine or sangria for the adults. There is alot of walking, and although the food is good and a good selection, very over priced. This is our second visit, we will be back.

went to the beer fest. ren faire was not open yet, but having the fest on the faire grounds was perfect. everything was spaced nicely so you can walk around and not knock into people. some of the faire stands were open for buisness. and the free food helped immensely

Four of us (over 50) had a great time at the fair. They have created a very special environment between the shops, stages and costumed staff, you feel like you are in another place and time. The costumed staff are high energy and friendly all day. Shows are happening at different stages throughout the day. There are plenty of food... More

It took my grandsons a little to adjust to NOT being at a county fair. But they did have a good time watching the Human Chessboard, the jousting on horses, the Stella Circus & riding the flying boar!!!

This is one of the best Renaissance Faire that we have attended. You need two days to see and do all that this Shire has to offer. Great for children of all ages. Will definitely do it again. Lots of fun. Better to do it in September or October.
