NEW ENGLAND’S OLDE ENGLAND
The Connecticut Renaissance Faire
Dragons & Dice Weekend
ROLL FOR INITIATIVE
Adventure Awaits those who attend our Dragons & Dice weekend. If you love video game RPGs, Table-tops, LARP, or just having fun, you’ll want to check this weekend out.
Deaf Awareness Day: We invite members of the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community to enjoy an interpreted day at the Faire. Finger Dancers from around New England join us to interpret a variety of shows for our friends who are Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing one day during National Deaf Awareness Week.
Mead Tasting Competition: Join us for the second annual Charter Oak Mead Cup – a MEAD magazine sanctioned mead competition. It is only $20 to participate as a popular vote judge sampling TEN 1 oz portions of entries. Judging begins at noon at the Pub Stage Building. A winner will be chosen and announced at 5 pm at the Faire and later on the Mead Magazine page. See contest rules here: Charter Oak Mead Cup.
Best Monster Costume: Don your best monster attire and get ready to wow the judges as they test your monstering prowess.
Meet the Author: Each day of our show, we schedule a new up-and-coming fantasy author. Buy a book, get it signed, join their fan club, and grab a selfie to show you were there. See who the author is for a given day in the Guests Merchants section of our Shops page.
Contest Info: All contests occur on the Tudor Stage at 4:00 pm. Unless otherwise mentioned, the Faire includes these events with your same-day admission. If you are planning to enter a contest, please arrive 10-15 minutes before starting. At the discretion of the contest host, some events may choose to limit the number of participants in a particular contest due to time restrictions.
