NOTE: Many puppies are not yet old enough to have their rabies vaccination. It is the owner’s responsibility to assess the risk of bringing young puppies to an outdoor event. We will not be held responsible for any illness a puppy may contract due to their age.
Friendly Pets Only: Public-friendly pets are welcome at the Faire on all event days.
Leashes: Pets must be leashed. Dogs must be on short leashes no longer than 6 feet.
Clean Up: Guests are expected to clean up and maintain control of their pets.
Types of Pets: We have seen all types of pets over the years including dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, rats, lizards and even a goat. No horses, donkeys, mules, livestock, etc. The Faire reserves the right to remove/refuse-entry to any pet.

Notice: For people with small pets (snakes, mice, rats, ferrets, kittens, rabbits), please be advised we have a live-flight birds of prey show. Entering the Faire with a small pet means you understand and accept this risk.
Please visit our Facebook page for up-to-date closure info or phone 860-478-5954 before heading out. We strive to remain open on most rain days, but will close due to safety concerns.
No outside alcohol. Faire management reserves the right to inspect any guest containers (backpacks, bags, purses, bottles, etc) at any time.
Commercial photography is forbidden without written permission from festival management. All guests of the Faire may take photographs or video for personal use only. For the safety of our guests Faire management reserves the right to ask any individual on the premises to stop on site photography or videography at any time for any reason. All attendees, whether paid or free admission, grant The Connecticut Renaissance Faire permission for their photograph to be used in our collateral materials. Parents or guardians of a child grant the Faire permission to use their photograph in our collateral materials.
Please be advised that we may have a cannon firing at 10:30 am to announce the opening of our event. During the day we have blackpowder weapon demonstrations between 3:00 and 3:45 pm that may result in sudden, loud noises. Around 6pm we may fire a cannon to announce our closing.
For your convenience, an ATM machine is available inside the site.
The site is wheelchair accessible with some steep slopes in places. Sorry, we don’t have wheelchairs for rent.
We are an outdoor event, which means you’ll likely encounter bees and other insects as well as varying temperatures and rain. The grounds are mostly level, but some areas have steep slopes or stairs.
The Faire does not offer refunds or ticket exchanges including refunds for closure due to weather, acts of god, or other reasons beyond our control.
Costumes & Weapons
Guests are welcome to wear family-friendly costuming to get into the fun. Costuming doesn’t have to be “Renaissance” as we’re a fantasy-based event. Come as you are or as you wish to be… Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Superheros, Villains, Stormtroopers, etc.
Bladed weapons must be peace-tied. Bows must be unstrung. Arrows must not be removed from their quiver.
Ticket Scams & Fraud
Be aware that there are numerous ticket scammers on Facebook claiming that (for whatever excuse) they can’t make it to the Faire this year and want to sell their tickets (usually cheap). Scammers are also able to print fake tickets and attempt to sell them in our parking lot. We cannot guarantee the validity of these tickets. To avoid being scammed we recommend purchasing your tickets through our website or at our box office on all Faire days.
