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.
The Connecticut Renaissance Faire
Fantasy takes flight when visitors step back to the past at The Connecticut Renaissance Faire. It’s a time to play and unwind, to feast and drink, and a time to celebrate the old-fashioned way. There are shows on stages around the faire, minstrels playing in the streets, and the ageless, old-world charm of a 16th century village is filled with laughter, romance, and good, old-fashioned family fun.
