Bristol Renaissance Faire Reviews
It had been well over two decades since I had been to a Renaissance Faire, and in my wildest dreams, I could not have anticipated a greater return. Rain or shine is no joke; this faire is active and charismatic in the extreme. Wonderful shows, marvelous food, and irresistible merchandise. I am crossing my fingers in the hope that this most recent and fun-filled excursion won’t take me another twenty years to repeat! – Justin K, 5 stars
Been here a handful of times, it is something everyone should experience! Whether you like dressing up, shows, shopping, interesting food, being outdoors, or people watching, you’ll love it! Definitely check out the joust, they’re the highlight of the day! Went a few weeks ago and am planning to come again in a few days! I ordered a costume off the internet so I can dress up for the first time and am so excited! I’m hooked! – Hollz, 5 stars
It was my first time at the Renaissance Faire and I was skeptical initially. My boyfriend wanted to go so I went along with him but was not super stoked about it. Well, I had to admit I was wrong because I had a great time. The shows were good and very entertaining. The food was good and the drinks were cold. Overall, it was a great experience and worth the trip. I’d recommend it to anyone! – Laura H, 5 stars
We have been attending the Faire for over a decade…love the improvements they have made over the years like flushable privies, more seating, and a variety of food and acts to keep us coming back for more!! The citizens of Bristol are kind, and we love to “play along” with them!! We LOVE Moonie and Barely Balanced!! Love to shop and delight in the trinkets and baubles we find each year!! Thank you for another wonderful day! – Alyson D, 5 stars
An AMAZING Ren Faire! Some form of entertainment literally around every corner! All the employees are happy and friendly and you can tell they love their jobs! This was the most fun we’ve had all summer! Can’t wait to go back! – Stef T, 5 stars
