Went to the Mansion at the Mount Hope Winery, home to PA Renaissance Faire, to see Poe Evermore. This is a live theater event in the mansion including dramatic readings of Edgar Allen Poe. Prior to the show, we had an excellent lunch at the Anchor and Mermaid Tavern on the grounds of Mount Hope Winery. Both the lunch and... More

We have visited Mount Hope Winery before but this visit was a disaster. We were on the Mason Dixon Wine Off the Vine Tour, which is a paid event. They were very disorganized. You are to get your ticket stamped at each winery. Other wineries on the tour have check-in areas. Not here and they didn't have a stamp so... More

We are extremely sorry for your experience during your visit on Saturday. We were admittedly understaffed last weekend, causing us to be overwhelmed with multiple tour groups that were visiting at the same time. Next weekend, we will have more staff on duty, a greeter upon arrival, and staff members that are purely dedicated to guests on the Wine Just... More

this is a great little find if your into wine. They let you taste the wines and see which ones you like, they have glasses to buy and the 2nd floor is a brewery. We didn't have time to go to the 2nd floor. My only complaint is, the girl that was helping us walked away and went to someone... More

Thank you very much for your review, Denise! This review was meant for ‘Rumspringa Brewing Company’ or ‘Mount Hope Wine Gallery’ on Trip Advisor, not ‘Mount Hope Estate & Winery, home of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire’, which is a different location, staff, and operation. It is, however, our sister store. We apologize for having a staff member walk away and... More

So yesterday was my first time back at the faire in about 10 years and it was a great time! I went with my parents, 7 year old brother, and my boyfriend (it was his first time ever going). We started by seeing the mud show , and for those who have never seen it, it is hysterical. It's kid... More

These folks always put on a good show. It's fun to see guests in costume and the environment is as close to a medieval village as I will ever get to outside of a book.

I have been going to the Faire for years. I got engaged there, and the I was married there. My husband and I go back every year to celebrate our anniversary. This year was disappointing. All the musical acts I love are gone. We usually start the morning with Giacomo, but he wasn't there, which also meant the Empty Hats... More

I had the opportunity to attend the Pa Renaissance Faire this past weekend. I would say this is a well priced event and worth seeing just for the costumes alone. Even if you are not a history buff of that time frame, it is a great way to spend a day. It is a reasonably priced and there are so... More

I thought this faire was bad back in 2012 but a friend wanted to go so we went again. What a waste of money! First time I ever left a faire early out of boredom! Food is gross! The meat on my cheesesteak tasted like it had been sitting on a steam tble soaking in distilled water for about 3... More

As a history buff and overall fan of festivals like this, I have to say that I was very disappointed this year. First of all - it has always been queen Elizabeth (my favorite Tudor monarch FYI). This year they changed it up to celebrate King Henry VIII, which would have been fine and even added to the interest if... More
