So many people think that Mount Hope Estate & Winery is solely the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire running during the late summer and fall months only. Located 15 miles north of Lancaster, PA and 13 miles east of Hershey, we are so much more, indeed. Mount Hope Estate & Winery is an historic estate featuring spectacular indoor and outdoor entertainment on the grounds of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire running almost year round providing incredible entertainment just for you.

However, the Faire site is 35+ acres and some stone or grass covered areas may need to be traveled to access some artisans or food booths. Handicapped accessible restrooms are available on the fairegrounds. Wheelchairs are not available to rent or loan.

Events are rain or shine. For the safety of the performers, shows may be altered due to the weather. Ticket exchanges and refunds are not available. Once a ticket has been scanned at the Front Gate upon entry, it is voided and no longer holds any value. The Faire does not monitor any guests’ level of participation or length of stay. Refunds are not available to guests who choose to leave. In rare circumstances, when the safety of patrons and participants is at risk due to extreme weather activity, the decision may be made to close the park until the threat has passed, or for the remainder of the day if necessary. An Emergency Action Plan is in place to notify guests of any closures and provide directions on actions to be taken to allow safe evacuation of the park. In the event the park is closed for the remainder of an event day, rain passes will be issued in the Wine Shop Formal Gardens for one hour following the call for evacuation of the park or until conditions become unsafe for event staff. Rain passes will NOT be issued after this time.
Re-entry is permitted at all events unless otherwise posted. If you wish to leave the Faire or any of our outdoor events and plan to return on the same day, you must get your hand stamped upon exiting. To re-enter, you must show your hand stamp—no exceptions. For those guests wishing to come back another day, some of our outdoor events have "Return Passes" available for sale at the Informistress booth. This "Return Pass" allows you to reenter any day—and at a discounted price!
