Join us for the 36th Season of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire on the grounds of Mount Hope Estate! The castle gates swing wide-open August 6, 2016 for 13 weekends of mirth and merriment amidst jousting knights and royal delights! A cast of hundreds of colorfully costumed characters will fill the Shire with music, dancing and more every Saturday and Sunday (plus Labor Day Monday) until October 30! With over 90 stage shows daily, 22 Royal Kitchens and scores of artisan merchants with handcrafted wares, the Renaissance Faire invites guests to immerse themselves in our 35-acre village and experience the fantasy!
Each weekend throughout the Faire season will showcase an exciting and unique theme that offers a different experience every time. Enjoy themed entertainment, foods, participatory contests and activities in addition to the regularly scheduled events. Be sure to return again and again to experience each theme. Keep checking back for more detailed information on each weekend!

Listen to Our Cast Albums
We now have two cast albums online!
