Important Ticket Info & FAQ

Why Should I Buy Tickets Online?
Purchasing tickets online allows you to walk right to our entry gate with a ticket you print at home (or on your phone). We’ll scan your ticket as you enter the Faire. Tickets purchased online have a nominal convenience fee added.

Why Should I Buy Tickets at the Box Office?
Once the Faire starts, online discounts for our event end. You can still take advantage of these discounts. Please note, these discounts do not stack with other discounts and are not available online:

  • Donate Eyeglasses: Give the gift of sight. Get a discount to the Faire. We’re giving $2 off your admission when you donate old eyeglasses or reading glasses to us. We accept both prescription and non-prescription eyewear, in both adult and children’s sizes. All glasses are donated to the Lions Club who collect useable eyewear for people in need.
  • Senior Discounts: Our guests (ages 65+) receive a $2 discount on their General Admission ticket with at-the-door admission (proof of age required).
  • Military Discounts: Active-or-Prior members of the Military (and their families) are admitted to the Faire at $2 off regularly priced General and/or Youth admission when paid for by the soldier. Please have your proof of service available.

What does my Ticket Include?

When you pass through the gates of our Faire, you’ll enter into the 7.5-acre village of Lebanshire, an enchanted recreation of a 16th-century harvest festival as one might have been long ago. Here the bustling streets are filled with themed shops to explore. Dotted

Winston the Duck brings extra fun to Shelly Button's Aerial Silk Show.

among New England’s largest Medieval Marketplace are ten stages, including a jousting field, a live-flight birds of prey area, and a knight encampment. Entertainment and shops vary from weekend to weekend to match unique themes and freshen things up for season pass holders. Your ticket includes all the performances on our ten stages during the regular Faire day.
