The Renaissance Faire at Sleepy Hollow

There’s a certain magic in the Renaissance Faire. Our festival is no exception. We have brought the old world to life again with a bewitching mix of fantasy and history: Welcome to a world where adults and children alike can become a knight or lady-in-waiting, a pirate or fairy, or simply remain an entertained observer. Step through the gates of our 18-acre park and be transported to an era when royalty rule, knights joust, and the arts come alive!

The adventure begins Labor Day weekend and continues through the following two weekends, with a different theme each weekend:

  • September 1st, 2nd & 3rd – Vikings & Shieldmaidens
  • September 8th-9th: Kilts & Lucky Lasses
  • September 15th-16th: Pirates & Wenches
  • 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., rain or shine!


Primitive Camping – A primitive camping spot $5 per person staying at the site. Bring your own tent and bedding and you can set up just outside the Faire.

Premium Camping – A limited number of premium camping spots are available for purchase for $30 per night which includes 2 people. Any additional people staying at the site will be $5 per person. These campsites can be used for Motor Homes/travel trailers with electric and water hookups.
