July 14th & 15th - Opening Weekend

Enjoy a weekend going back in time to the Renaissance! Enjoy our Jousters fighting for the Queen's approval. Walk along the streets to meet our artisans and craftsman selling their wares! Be entertained by music, juggling and magic! Meet the Queen herself and enjoy a cup of her favorite drink - Chocolatada. We look forward to seeing you this weekend as we celebrate the opening of our Faire!


July 21st & 22nd - Fantasy Weekend

Fantasy weekend is time for all things 'outside of our realm' to come a play. You never know what might 'pop-in' from afar. Our forest is known for magical things to come to life. Maybe a Fairie will cross your path? Come see for you self as we celebrate all things fantasy and whimsical.


July 28th & 29th - Pirates Take Over!

Avast! Thar be Pirates! We caught wind that a band of scallywags will be headed over the second weekend of our beloved fair. So why beat 'em? Join 'em! Come in your best Pirate garb so 'ye fit in or risk being kicked out! You won't actually be kicked out, but who doesn't need an excuse to dress (or talk) like a pirate? Come meet our team of Pirates, learn to BE a Pirate and help take over the merciless crew!


August 4th & 5th - Steampunk Weekend

Was that a glitch? No, my friend. It's Steampunk Weekend. Go back in time to when steam and gears made the world go 'round. Feel free to travel as far back or as far forward as you like. Bring your friends! Set your ray guns to stun - you'll never know who you'll meet next.


August 11th & 12th - Royal Weekend

This weekend we celebrate Her Royal Majesty, Queen Isabel. You may purchase a ticket to join her for a delicious and amazing Spanish drink - Chocolatada. Walk through the streets and rub elbows with her court. Come and be treated like royalty as we cap off our 2018 season!
