The New Jersey Renaissance Faire transports you from suburban NJ to the magical village of Crossford, where the fairies in the land have gathered to host a covid-safe, outdoor MASQUERADE BALL, and all are invited! The magical fun kicks off at 10am and runs until 6pm with 7 fun-filled hours of Sword Fighting, Comedy Shows, Knights Jousting, Music, Aerialists, and much more! There is also an eclectic merchant village of hand-made artisan crafts where you can find jewelry, themed clothing, artwork, handmade soaps, candles, and other unique trinkets in between shows.
Animals from “Knowhere Farm” in Chesterfield, NJ will be amongst the villagers, including Moo the “Comfort-Cow,” who will be accompanying his goat friends on the shores of “Loch Liberty.” But those aren’t the only animals to be found around the village, as there will be Unicorn Rides for children, which is one of the many fun activities found at “Nippers Nook” to explore!
For adults, enjoy Axe Throwing, Archery, Bull-Whip lessons, and a Meade Garden hosted by the South Jersey Celtic Society with local craft beers and wines! See a Medieval sword fight on Swain Field, or have your Tarot Card, if you dare. If you’re getting hungry from all the festivities there are plenty of different food options including dragon (turkey) legs, African BBQ bowls, and other treats to be enjoyed amongst the live entertainment at the Duke’s Feast Tent.
The New Jersey Ren Faire’s cast of characters and hardworking staff do a spectacular job of keeping the magic of the village of Crossford alive year after year, through performance, song, and just sheer interaction on the streets. If you’ve never been to a Ren Faire, it’s a fun, safe, memorable family experience to all who attended!
All four days of this year’s Faire have been sold out, with a limited number of additional tickets for this coming weekend (June 5-6) going on sale as you read this. Despite last weekend’s cold and rainy weather (think Scotland or Ireland), patrons showed up early, stayed late, and reveled in the old-time fun! Don’t miss out on this truly magical event- and if you do, check out the amazing pictures on their Facebook and Instagram pages!
