Mansion was beautifully decorated with friendly staff who answered any questions. Carolers performed each half hour and were wonderful; really put one in the holiday spirit. Decided to have lunch at the on-site tavern but was VERY disappointed; drinks were flat, food was only lukewarm and selections were very limited. Would not suggest you eat there. The many outside vendors... More

I try to go every year, sometimes I can't make it but I seem to pick the hottest day on earth when I do go. I like to go first thing in the morning when there isn't a crowd. By noon time the crowds start to come and by 2:30pm you just do not have any room to move. Another... More

For the traveler who wants to truly "get a way from it all", they can immerse themselves in another time and in another place at the Mount Hope Estate & Winery. It is the home of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, one of the finest Faires in the country! Incredible local wines, ales, and beers, not to mention the fantasy realm... More

I visited with my child and what fun we had. This is a very clean and well maintained facility, Lots of variety and things to do. I recommend getting to know the characters and the storyline. There is a story that progresses throughout the day and builds during the human chess match and the joust and then culminates with the... More

Thank you for visiting the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire and providing a wonderful review. Just to let you know, we do have a slightly different scenario each Faire season that carries throughout the day. Stay tuned for the 2017 storyline and we will look forward to your return to the Shire. More

We were in the area when we discovered the PA Ren Faire was on. Despite not being prepared with our costumes I thoroughly enjoyed everyone else's. Some of the costumes were extremely elaborate, while most were not. It was cold and cloudy but attendance was high. The food was good but most lines were long. The complex is large, 35... More

Bring your wallet - the Faire has changed over the years from being a performance space and a small village that you were invited to enter and roam to a MALL of "it is close enough to seem Renaissance" dragons and candles and STUFF, The characters are hardly in dialect and the joust has Yettis (I kid you not) BUT...

The PA Renaissance Fair is a large event, sprawling over the grounds of the Mount Hope Estates and Winery, and seeing everything will take at least a day or two. It runs on weekends in August through October, as well as Labor Day. There's something for everyone. There are activities appropriate for children, such as magicians, musicians, stunt performers, human... More
