Robin Hood’s Medieval Faire returns to the Harwinton Fairgrounds

Robin Hood’s Medieval Faire returns to the Harwinton Fairgrounds every Saturday and Sunday from May 21 to July 3, 2022, 10:30 am to 6:00 pm. This enchanted recreation of a Medieval spring festival is a craft marketplace and entertainment extravaganza appealing to a wide range of guests by mixing outdoor theater and circus-style entertainment with more than 70 local artisans — one of the largest themed craft shows in New England.

Every day of this historical-fantasy family event brings something new to see: jousting knights, armored combat melees, and circus-style entertainment such as sword swallowers and fire breathers. Six performance stages dot the medieval village giving you numerous shows to see as you wander the marketplace with your turkey leg and craft brew.

Founded in 2009, Robin Hood’s Medieval Faire has toured to various locations in Connecticut over its 12 years, sharing its creative spin on history with thousands of guests.

Did we mention the food? Feast like a king on turkey legs, bread bowl stews, scotch eggs, and even more for the adventurous. Then wash it all down with various craft brews, wines, or mead from Connecticut.

Continuous themed entertainment, shopping, games of skill, music, comedy, craft beer, and food await both adults and children, and it’s all just minutes from Hartford.

Renaissance Faires are one of the most interactive entertainment forms with beautiful shows, amusements, and fun. Sit back and watch the antics unfold around you or become part of the performance. Interact with Robin Hood, Maid Marion, the Sheriff of Nottingham, and other costumed characters who breathe life into the quaint village faire.
