Welcome to The Renaissance Faire at Sleepy Hollow

Iowa’s only permanent Renaissance Village

The Renaissance Faire at Sleepy Hollow  in Des Moines, IA is a magical experience for both young and old. When you enter our gates for the first time you will go back in time to an era when royalty ruled, knights jousted, and the arts came alive! With so much to see and do we wanted to give any newcomers to Renaissance Faires or Sleepy Hollow’s Castle Park a guide on what they can expect at Iowa’s only permanent Faire site.

In 2021 we are expanding by adding two new weekends to our festivities. You can experience the Renaissance during the following events:

Spring Fling | Fall Faire

Spring Fling

Gathering of the Sails – May 8th-9th

Gathering of Clans – May 15th-16th
