Love this place and all it has to offer, from the Ren Fair to the Dickens Christmas its the place to go for a truly holiday experience. If you stay at one of the local hotels there are plenty of other attractions to fill your weekend and plenty of places for a great meal.

I took my family of five to the dinner show. I'm not a crank or a hater, but I was so dissatisfied I promised myself I'd take the time to write a review. The food was mediocre. While parts of the show were quite good, a few bad segments dragged the whole thing down. It was pretty expensive for a... More

Tons of activities and shows held throughout the day. Activities and shows are designed for different age groups but the map/guide is very easy to figure out and follow! Food is reasonably priced. Be sure to see the final jousting event...it's terriffic!

Took the boys for a Dickens-themed show at Mt. Hope. Each year after the Ren Faire, Mt. Hope puts on the Poe Evermore and Dickens Christmas themed events. We all had fun. The cast was very friendly and the skits performed were great, especially Christmas Carol. I would recommend checking this out!

I absolutely love this place. My family and I have been going here for many many years. They have so many various programs throughout the year, you can never tire of it. The actors are wonderful.

We had a awesome day at the PA Renaissance Faire. There were many great, funny, and/or interesting shows. There was plenty to do here and we stayed from open to close. The food was a little expensive, but delicious, and there were plenty of choices. This is on our list to do next year too. After trying some of the... More

Used to love this place. However, it's lost it's "Ren Faire" appeal. It's so commercial, with endless overpriced vendors. Most of the fun was watching the people that weren't paid to be there come in costume with their life sized personalities....just doesn't seem to be happening anymore. It's more of a beer garden now, which isn't a big deal (as... More

My girlfriend enjoyed the free wine sampling while I shopped for the hugely discounted case of wine, 30% off. We strolled through the vendor tent with some terrific crafts. My only disappointment was that I forgot to buy the discounted tickets for the upcoming events. Luckily they offered the discount on their website.
