Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I, invites you to live the excitement and adventure of England in the 1500′s. Located at Mount Hope Vineyards, the Annual Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire offers 35 acres of jousting knights and royal delights. Hundreds of colorfully-costumed characters breathe life into the mirth and merriment of an authentic recreation of a 16th century English village, complete with dozens of authentic Tudor buildings. Musical performances, magic acts, fire-breathing, puppet shows, Shakespearean plays, comical mud beggars and live jousting are just a few of the entertainments that fill the schedule with over 90 shows daily, unfolding on 12 stages.
Merchants. Experience the fantasy!! We’ve even had some guests go in costume during their stay at our Hershey bed and breakfast.
Each weekend throughout the Faire season an exciting and unique theme is showcased, each offering a different experience. Enjoy special entertainment, foods, participatory contests and activities in addition to the regularly scheduled events.
The Faire is open from 11AM – 8PM Weekends plus Labor Day Monday until October 30th. Discounted tickets are available!
The Faire truly has something to interest everyone including this special treat for history buffs:
The Mount Hope Trayn’d Band is a living history group that portrays what life was like for a 16th century soldier. The Elizabethan equivalent of a local militia or “national guard,” the Trayn’d Band will have a period encampment on the Faire grounds, and welcome patrons to visit and experience what life was like for an Elizabethan soldier! Firing demonstrations, pike drills, and general soldiers’ merriment will abound around the camp!
