Dog Policy & Restrictions
Intact dogs in heat are not permitted.
Dogs must be leashed at all times. 6-foot maximum leash.
All dogs must have proof of age-appropriate vaccinations. NOTE: Many puppies are not yet old enough to have their rabies vaccination.

All guests of the Faire may take photographs or video for personal use only. No commercial photography. 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.
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. Costume weapons (swords, for example) must be peace-tied at the gate.
The site is wheelchair accessible with some steep slopes in places. Sorry, we don’t have wheelchairs for rent.
No outside alcohol. Faire management reserves the right to inspect any guest containers (backpacks, bags, purses, bottles, etc) at any time.
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.
