Back in time
Aug 2021 • Family
Went here with the whole family for opening weekend. It was a good time despite the constant rain. The roads where paved which is a really nice change from other ren faires we have gone too. 90% of the structures were permanent which is also great. The team members in character as guides to where we needed to go was a lovely touch (he stayed in character as well). Bird of prey demonstration was fun!

Always fun
Aug 2021
It was a drizzly kind of day... thanks Henri... but a good time was had by all. Tons of shows, music, and laughter. We saw an old favorite, Cu Dubh, at the Globe. Knightwings brought out their Falcons for demonstrations. The Maze was fun. The Dungeon gave my grandchildren some ideas for their siblings. The food was amazing - Turkey Legs, Baked Potatoes, Bread Bowls filled with soup, Ice Cream, Chocolate, Lemonade, and more. We missed last year due to the restrictions and were quite pleased with some of the renovations/changes made to different venues.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING
Aug 2021 • Friends
Went for the first time to a renaissance faire. I am 47 and i was instantly 12 again. The landscape is lush and beautiful, everywhere. The costumes, actors, buildings, everything, puts you directly in the time period. I am not a guy that really likes to see shows but these were amazing! If you are an adult definitely see the sirens at the pirate ship. It's perverted and so funny I had tears in my eyes. All of these people can sing, dance and play instruments on the professional level. The whip guys are also an insane show. There is so many things we didn't even get to see. If you're an adult without kids, it can be an adult Disneyland. Even the beer was great. I was blown away by how everyone and all ages come together to use their imagination and have fun. Everyone including dogs are as happy as can be. We talked to so many people, complimented costumes, and thoroughly enjoyed every second. No matter who you are, how you look, whatever you believe in, every step of life, you are all one here. I felt true love and acceptance in the air. It gave me hope that all we have been through in the past several years, that we could all let it go, come together, use our imagination and celebrate the wonderful world we live in. It should be on everyone's bucket list. Even if you think it's ridiculous, the first 30 minutes will change your mind. Thank you to all the actors and guests, I will forever remember a wonderful day.

Theater and dinner plus Wine
May 2021
Went to a dinner theater,food was only average but did not expect it to be gourmet. Had no idea what the play was about, could not hear the actors,because of masks and room to noisy. However the price did not break the bank.

Magical Classy Elegant Fun
Nov 2020 • Couples
Absolutely stunning at Christmas. I love their Dickens of a Christmas dinner theater and go every year. The beautiful Victorian mansion is adorned with the most beautiful Christmas decorations I've ever seen. Each year it is different. The dinner theater is so elegant, the food is 5 star & the play is lighthearted, interactive & entertaining. The staff & cast are so welcoming, accommodating & make you feel right at home. It is so worth it. Go! 🎄
I love the warm spiced apple wine.

Sexual innuendos, not family friendly
Oct 2020 • Family
I bought 10 tickets to the PA. Renaissance at Mount Hope expecting to have a fun family time. The sexual inuendo was constant through the performances. We were very turned off. Some of my left early. Such a waist of money. One and done for all of us.

Not a large selection

Chose some wines based on the labels for my friends and neighbors. No tastings which was fine. I was looking for a Cabernet or Pinot Grigio but no luck.

pennsylvania renaissance faire
Oct 2020
we went to the renfest here since ours was cancelled in Ohio, have never been to this one before, we were really impressed, there was lots to see and do. the costumes the people wore were amazing, we really liked the lay out of the fair, people were all wearing their masks and keeping apart, we were so glad that they found a way to stay open, we will have to add this to the list of faires to attend next year. we can't wait to go back.

Magical Experience
Sep 2020
I pretty much attend the Renaissance Faire yearly and was hoping against hope with the Quarantine that it would not be canceled this year. It was only delayed by a month. Love going here, the interaction between characters and with the spectators. Always a fun day for the family or just to chill with friends. Always more fun if you dress to impress. There are tons of shops to explore and lots of shows to see. Where good shoes, for there is a ton of walking. Everyone is to wear a mask while attending, which the Faire reminds everyone repeatedly. You also need to purchase your tickets online as they are not currently sold at the faire.
