NJ Renaissance Faire

Bordentown, NJ

May 28, & 29

June 3, 4, & 5

$10-$90 entry fee

There are six formal stages in all with shows for the young and young-in-spirit, but truth be told, the entire Village of Crossford is a stage – and the show begins upon entering the castle gates!

If you thought you would just sit through some droll rendition of a 16th-century tale at the New Jersey Renaissance Faire, you are mistaken! Colorful characters, charming artists, and playful scenes are all center stages during this year’s all-outdoor Faire.  Walkthrough the gates and discover what many of us already know – the live interaction at this Faire is part of the fun!  Outdoor improvisational theatre surrounds you throughout the magical shire of Crossford, located on the beautiful grounds of Liberty Lake.  There are dozens of scheduled shows, as well many that ‘pop up’ right before your eyes on the village paths. Be prepared to burst into laughter and gaze in awe during your stay at our shire!  For more information visit: https://njrenfaire.com/ 

Sparta Renaissance Festival

Sparta, NJ

September 10 & 11

September 17 & 18

$0 - $20 entry fee

We have several NEW features for the Ren Faire this year, such as a gem mining experience, a bird show, a serene stone cairn stacking activity, and a mug slide game! We are also improving on some of the other events such as the magical fishing that was a huge hit! We also have a slew of exciting new vendors alongside the vendors you have grown to love over the years. I also heard a rumor that we might be opening a third bar this year.   For more information visit: https://www.spartanjrenfaire.com/
