What is not to like? Great food, wonderful actors, a joust and fabulous stores to shop.Travel back in time to renaissance England and be enchanted.

This was my first visit to the PA Ren. Faire with my family (3 adult tickets and one child ticket). If you buy your tickets at the gate the price is higher (although you can find coupons, check their website for coupon locations). If you arrive in costume (which MANY people do) or buy your tickets on line you get... More

This is the place to be! Acts all day. Amazing food! Fun for the entire family! I have been to many Renaissance Faires and this one by far is the best.

Even in pouring rain, the vendors and actors made it a fun and memorable day. Watching London Broil (a juggling troupe) do their act all while throwing in free (but funny) complaints on the weather was terrific.

I have visited several Ren Faires, but the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire at Mt. Hope continues to be my favorite. My most recent visit was with a group, but I have also gone with my girlfriend and solo. The entertainment--performers such as Circa Paleo, Barby Holder, Tartanic, the Sultry Sirens of Sin, and hypnotist Rick Stratton--is fantastic. The beer , wine,... More

This was the first time visiting the Faire and we really enjoyed it. The performers in their costumes looked amazing and they really tried to stay in character. It really feels like you are in that Era, the way everything is set up with the shops and houses. They do have costume rentals there in case you decide you want... More

Yesterday the weather was beautiful..and seeing that we had previously purchased two tickets to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, we decide that it was the perfect time to pay a visit...and indeed it was. We visited the Faire about 7 or 8 years ago and it has really come a long way since. We were at the event for about 4... More

The winery was small but unique. Had a nice variety of wine and the prices were normal. The staff members were very nice and helpful and the wine tastings are free! The Renaissance Faire was great, but something I'd only go to every few years. The staff was very friendly, the grounds were clean, all of the food was excellent,... More

It was my first time at the renaissance fair and definitely wont be my last. I had an amazing time, it was so much fun. Free parking, the price was reasonable, they had military discounts which was wonderful for my husband and I. Everyone was so friendly, it was neat, it is set up like a village, there is tons...

This faire vastly exceeded our expectations. It was like Busch Gardens without the rides. Very involved, with period buildings, live (somewhat corny but overall quite fun) entertainment, and a live joust. The people were fun and friendly, and this was a very pleasant experience. The bathrooms were also surprisingly clean.
