Bristol RenQuest™

What is RenQuest™?

RenQuest is a game full of thoughtful and fun puzzles, a story where you are the main character hero, and a place where the epic legends of King Arthur’s Court live on during Queen Elizabeth’s Renaissance. If you can prove that you are a worthy Heir of the Round Table, you can select who will wield the mighty sword Excalibur. And for those who rise to the challenge, there are dozens of quests that can take you throughout the city of Bristol to unravel ancient mysteries!

How do I join?

The 2022 RenQuest™ story is a one-day adventure perfect for those who have never played the game before, or long-standing players who wish to dive deeper into the mysteries of The Order of Camelot!

Once you have decided to strike out on your great adventure, you may purchase your day of play at the RenQuest™ Red Vardo.

RenQuest™ Pricing:

Gameplay is $10, recommended for ages 12 and up (but we’ve had players as young as 8 with accompanying parents). Sign up at the RenQuest™ Red Vardo, located near the Cheshire Chase stage on your Faire map. Tickets are available from 11:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. every Faire day. Questing ends at 6:00 p.m.

This price is in addition to the gate ticket price and does not offer any gate ticket discounts.

Getting Started in RenQuest™

Once you have purchased your RenQuest™ ticket, you will be directed to speak with your first quest-giver, step into your character, and help the city of Bristol! The main game lasts approximately 2 hours (play at your own pace).

There are dozens of additional quests posted on our Adventuring Board at the RenQuest™ camp. These quests vary in difficulty and length, and there are far more than can be completed in one day! We recommend completing the main story quest before taking on the secondary challenges, but you’re welcome to play in whatever way brings you joy.
