The Connecticut Renaissance Faire

Roses & Romance Weekend

LOVE IS EVERYWHERE IN THE FAIRE

Romance is in the Faire during our “Roses & Romance” Weekend. If you’re a hopeless romantic, you’ll fall in love with this weekend. If you’re single, grab a complimentary “Single!” sticker at the Gypsy Rose booth and say hello to other Singles around the Faire. It’s a great way to meet people with similar interests.

Saturday

Fairest of them All: Your mirror knows you’re the “Fairest of them all,” but now is the time to prove it to your adoring public. The person who receives the most roses purchased for them at the Faire will be declared the winner at the end of this contest. The winner will receive a certificate to accompany their prize, including a pair of tickets to return to the Faire and more! Roses can be purchased by anyone and awarded to a contestant leading up to and during the contest. Judges will limit the number of contestants based on the total number of roses already received at the start of the competition. Prize: a gold-dipped rose gifted by Gypsy Rose.

Vow Renewals: Immediately following our Fairest of them all contest is a special Vow Renewal Ceremony for married couples. This special event is included with your admission to the Faire and includes a certificate, so don’t miss out!

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 Sovereign 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.
