There are several reasons we have found that orders have not been received. Please check the following:

1. You are checking the email address that was entered into your Box Office account.
2. The email address in your Box Office account is spelled correctly.
Access your Box Office account by going to the online box office at MountHopeEstate.VBOTickets.com.
Select "Sign In" in the top right-hand corner
From your emailed Order Confirmation, select "View Tickets".
Scroll through your tickets in the new window that has opened.
When a transaction is begun, your credit card company put a hold on the funds anticipating a successful transaction. If the transaction is unsuccessful, the hold on the funds will be released by your credit card company and you will not be charged. The length of time the hold will appear depends directly on your credit card company.
If a credit card fails to process, this is usually due to 1 of 4 scenarios. We are unable to override the processing system, as it is in place for security purposes.

1. The card was declined due to insufficient funds or another problem with the card.
2. Card information was entered incorrectly. For example, the credit card number or the CVV code is incorrect.
3. AVS (Address Verification Settings) declined due to mismatched billing information entered. The street address & 5-digit zip code must match. If these items are entered incorrectly, the card will be declined.
4. Recheck your VBO Box Office account and confirm all address fields for billing are correct. (i.e. the zip code is in the Zip Code field, the state is in the State Field, etc.)
5. Be sure to clear you computer cache before attempting a new order after experiencing issues and making corrections.
6. There is a problem with the gateway or VBO. When this happens, ALL Box Office transactions will fail and the error is repeatable, however, at this time, the Box Office is operating and recording sales.

If you continue to experience these issues, we suggest contacting your credit company for assistant or attempt a new order with a different card or ordering with a friend.
A Subscription includes 1 ticket for each individual within the single order subscription to each of the public Faire dates. Adult subscription codes will only access adult Faire reservation tickets. Child subscription codes will only access child Faire reservation tickets. The purchased Subscription Code must be used by the holder to obtain each Faire day's ticket(s). Subscriptions have replaced passes previously called "Season Passes".

If you wish to purchase a subscription as a gift or for someone under a different household who will be attending the Faire separately, use the "Gift As a Gift" option at the beginning of the Subscription purchase process. Do not purchase subscriptions for another household under a single subscription unless you will be obtaining all the tickets for your subscription group. Use the "Give Gift Option" to purchase any gift subscriptions to provide the necessary Subscription Code to the gift recipient.

Example: Jane wants to buy a Subscription for herself and her husband, Jack AND a Subscription for her sister, Mary and her husband, Joe. To get her own subscription code, Jane would purchase an Adult Subscription with the quantity of "2" and purchase a Gift Subscription for her sister with a quantity of "2". Jane will then use her subscription code to obtain her tickets for herself and Jack and Mary will receive her own unique subscription code to obtain tickets for herself and Joe.

Step 1: Purchase a Faire Subscription:
To the Box Office at: Virtual Box Office | Mount Hope Estate (parenfaire.com)
Click "Purchase" in the upper right-hand corner of the screen
Click Subscriptions in the upper left-hand corner of the screen

Step 2: Obtain Your Faire Tickets With Subscription Code:
Enter the Box Office at www.parenfaire.com/buytickets.html
Click on "Purchase" at the top toward the right.
Click on the green "Order Now" button to the right of the Faire event.
Click "Enter Subscription Code" in the upper right-hand corner of the screen
Enter your Subscription Code and click "Submit
Click on the correct date/time block(s) at the top to select.
Select the number of tickets under "QTY"
Click the green "Order Now" button
Follow the screen prompts to continue.
We have a "safeguard" built into our new system to be able to accommodate subscription holders' date-specific tickets requests.

Patrons who purchase a Faire subscription receive a subscription code that they will use to obtain reservation tickets online for the date specific days of the 2022 Faire season. This includes 1 ticket per subscription for each of the 23 days of the Faire. Adult subscription codes will only access adult Faire reservation tickets. Child subscription codes will only access child Faire reservation tickets.

Faire reservation tickets must be presented at the gate as a printed copy or on a mobile device with an ID to enter the Fairegrounds.

Plastic cards will no longer be issued. It is the responsibility of the subscription purchaser to keep their subscription code and use it as set forth above.

General Information

Children 4 and under are FREE for Mount Hope Events allowing guests under 21 and do not require a ticket. Children ages 5-11 qualify for child pricing.

Please note; Some events at Mount Hope do not have children's pricing. Additionally, events such as PA Brewer's Fest are 21 and older only. Each event will specify these limitations if applicable.
To better serve our guests, we have eliminated the need for coupons to save on your Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire admission tickets.

Because all tickets are now being sold in advance, online, previous "at gate" discounts cannot be offered because verification of qualifying status cannot be obtained. We are working with a new box office system and hope to offer new online discounts in the future.

Follow us on Facebook for details on ticket discounts. Ticket purchasers will also be notified by email of any possible discounts.
