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 kings and queens 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.

2021’s Spring Fling was a huge success, so you can now experience the Renaissance Faire during the following events:
