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!

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

I continue to be surprised by how many visitors come in custom and see she the additional fun it adds. Food and beverage is good. Having a winery there is a plus for adults, decent local wines. good attractions for kids of almost... 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.

Andrew, Glenn, and Michael (I think was the names of the guys that day) were a fun, knowledgeable trio that made our visit the best we've ever had. I really enjoyed all of the wines and picture myself going back very soon!
