Special Events & Theme Weekends

Special Event: VIP Joust Seating

VIP Joust Seating

Put yourself in the middle of the action with VIP Seating at the Roselawn Tournament Joust Field! Enjoy the Royal Treatment with covered seating, a bottle of water and an exclusive souvenir. Tickets are $5 per person/per Joust and may be purchased at the Information Booth in the Village Green. Seating is limited to 300 people per show.
Special Event: Pub Crawl

Pub Crawl

Join us for a riotous brewfest with bodacious songs, jokes, and games!

Visit the pubs of the Shire and sample the finest brews in the company of our most colorful characters. FIVE alcoholic beverages are included, one at each pub.

Tickets are $45 per person. Each Crawl lasts approximately 75-90 minutes. Participants will also receive a commemorative pin. Limit one Pub Crawl per person per day.


With a valid ID in hand, you MUST check-in at the Information Booth at least 30 minutes before your scheduled Pub Crawl to receive your wristband. Without a wristband, you can not join the Pub Crawl. There are no exceptions to this. Please note that congestion on the local roadways and lines into the parking areas can be quite long in the afternoon.  Please factor this in so that you can make it to the Pub Crawl on time as Pub Crawl tickets are non-refundable. The traffic in the morning before 10:30 a.m. is relatively clear so we encourage you to join us as early in the day as possible. If you are late to your Pub Crawl,  please understand that you will not receive all five drinks as the Crawl will already be in progress.

You must be 21+ and have your valid Driver’s License/State ID to participate (IDs will be checked for everyone). Children are not permitted on the Pub Crawl (including children in strollers). Please drink responsibly. We like return customers! A ticket to the Pub Crawl does not include admission to The New York Renaissance Faire. You will need an admission ticket and a Pub Crawl ticket if you wish to join the Pub Crawl.

A limited number of advance tickets are available for purchase online on a first-come, first-served basis. Pub Crawl tickets purchased online must be redeemed at the Information Booth between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to receive your wristband.

The Pub Crawl sells out quickly. Day-of tickets are available at the Information Booth until 2:30 p.m. We recommend online purchase before you arrive at the Faire to guarantee your spot.
