UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS

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 pickle, and a non-alcoholic beverage! Tickets are $20 per person/per Joust and may be purchased at the Information Booth in the Village Green. Seating is limited to 150 people per show.
Special Event: Pub Crawl

Pub Crawl

Play the best beer game this side of 1599 at New York’s legendary Pub Crawl. Join the loud and lusty pub crawl crew, skip long lines as they personally amuse you along the village streets to several fine taverns and public houses. Try not to spill as you jiggle with merriment at the most bodacious songs, jests, jokes, stories, and riddles the shire has to offer. FIVE alcoholic drinks are included in the Pub Crawl – one at each pub.

The Pub Crawl departs at 11:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. and costs $55 to party with us. Half of the tickets for each crawl are available online, and half are available for purchase on the day of the crawl (at the Information Booth) on a first-come basis. Pub Crawl tickets purchased online must be redeemed at the Information Booth between 10 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. to receive your wristband. You MUST check-in at least 30 minutes before your scheduled Pub Crawl to receive your wristband. No wristband means no Pub Crawl. If you are late, you will not receive all 5 drinks. No refunds.

PUB CRAWL TICKETS GO ON SALE IN AUGUST, 2022

You may only Crawl once per day!

The Pub Crawl sells out quickly and 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 drink with us.

Must be 21 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!

Important Traffic Note: 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 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, please understand that you will not receive all five drinks as the Crawl will already be in progress.

New York Renaissance Faire Reviews

This faire has a gorgeous permanent site with lakes and lovely landscaping. The shows are entertaining and there is a wide variety of goods for sale from armor to garb to finely crafted jewelry and decorations. The food and drink are also wonderful. I highly recommend seeking out the Skaldvik Viking Village on-site, it’s a great setup where you can learn a bit and even play games, Kub in particular is great fun. – Laura Clark
