Connecticut Renaissance Faire Bids Farewell to North Haven + Relocates
Say it isn't so. Where will you go now?
One of the coolest events anywhere is a Renaissance Festival. All that jousting, and chainmail armour, and larger than life turkey legs.
A big time favorite event in Connecticut is making a change, and moving from the North Haven Fairgrounds out to the eastern part of the state, to the Lebanon Fairgrounds.
In a story from the New Haven Register, the Connecticut Renaissance Faire is leaving the North Haven Fairgrounds. According to the article the main reason for the move is the vibe is a bit too "modern day" than you'd expect from Renaissance times.
At first we thought we could handle it, but we simply couldn’t keep running a themed event set in the Renaissance against the sound of tractor trailers and sport bikes zipping by. The grounds are great but they are very ‘modern.’ The layout of the buildings made it very difficult to create the immersive environment we’re trying for
I'll say that the people I know that love this type of event will travel most anywhere to enjoy stepping back in time. For more information, directions, and to buy tickets, click on ctfaire.com
The Lebanon Fairgrounds are located at 122 Mack Road, and the Connecticut Renaissance Faire runs every Saturday and Sunday, plus Labor Day and Columbus Day starting on September 2 and going until October 9, from 10:30 am - 6 pm
