Like hearing an old song on the radio, driving past your alma mater, or pounding shots of baby formula, renaissance fairs transport people to another time. Experience another era with today’s Groupon to the Connecticut Renaissance Faire in Hebron, valid Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25. Choose between the following options:
- For $16, you get two adult admissions (up to a $32 value).
- For $10, you get two youth admissions for children ages 5–12 (up to a $20 value). Kids under the age of 5 receive free admission.
The Connecticut Renaissance Faire hosts jousting knights, fire-eaters, comedians, magicians, and more, with one of the largest medieval marketplaces in New England. Revelers can indulge in one of the fair’s multitudinous stage shows, including a blacksmithing demonstration, a birds of prey showcase, and a reenactment of the formation of the first serf-labor basketball team. Interactive characters such as King Arthur and Guinevere roam the fairgrounds, chatting up guests and cracking wise. Although not included with this Groupon, a smattering of vendors sell handicrafts and services such as belly-dance costumes, tarot readings, and shark-adorned moats.
Although the Connecticut Renaissance Faire sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Halloween Knights Festival
As the drawbridge to The Connecticut Renaissance Faire closes for the evening, the sounds of Halloween laughter can be heard echoing in North Haven. After enjoying a full day of turkey legs and tyrannical kings in a tented marketplace, the festive event transforms into a Halloween haven filled with photo-happy zombies, shopping under the moonlight, games, contests, food, and shows, including the main event: a fire-fueled joust between the headless horseman and his arch enemies.
