Special Occasions:

For three weekends in September, the Renaissance Faire at Sleepy Hollow provides the perfect setting to hold a large-scale event. You’ll see jugglers, minstrels, jesters, and belly dancers perform wonders before your group’s very eyes. You’ll laugh (and sometimes groan) at the banter leveled at the audience by comedic acts. And you’ll tap your feet and hum along to the catchy tunes performed by talented musicians. Plan your group outing to coincide with the Faire, and you will have an event remembered for many years to come!
