NEW ENGLAND’S OLDE ENGLAND
The Connecticut Renaissance Faire
Time Travelers Weekend
1.21 GIGAWATTS OF FUN
Whether you’re a villain here to “exterminate” The Doctor, boldly going where no one has gone before, or you’re a hero from a galaxy far, far away, you’re going to love our Time Traveler’s “Geek”-end. This theme is your chance to show off your favorite cosplay regardless of where and when it represents. If you choose to “come as you are,” this is an opportunity to see some fantastic individuals’ impressive talent, creativity, and tireless work.
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.
Time Travelers Cosplay Costume Contest: It doesn’t matter where or when you’re from, or even what galaxy. Come dressed as your favorite character from history or fantasy and complete in this Time Travelers Cosplay Costume Contest.
Doctor Who Cosplay Costume Contest: If you have a favorite Doctor Cosplay, now is your chance to show it off. Come dressed as your ideal Doctor, Companion, or other characters from one of our favorite shows.
Whovian Photo Ops: Immediately after the cosplay costume contest, join us at the TARDIS for a group photoshoot of all our Whovian friends.
Monday (Columbus Day)
Loki Costume Contest: Come dressed as a known Loki Variant or create one of your own design.
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.
