Fall Faire

For three weekends in September, the Renaissance Faire at Sleepy Hollow provides the perfect place to bring the whole family.
You’ll see jugglers, minstrels, jesters, and belly dancers perform wonders before your 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.

Themed weekends set the perfect stage for you to prepare your outfit and we encourage it! Each weekend will feature different acts, costumes, and more!

  • Celtic Ceilidah – a celebration of dance and culture plus Highland Games.

  • Dungeons, Dragons, Wizards, and Fae - a Ren Faire fantasy weekend.

  • Pirates, (steam)Punks, and Pets.

Smoker (21+)

After the Ren Faire has closed its gates pirates can be seen emerging from their daytime hiding. Ale will flow and the uncouth jokes will pour forth as our pirate crew hosts an evening of entertainment that is for grownups only. Acts that during the day keep their tongues civil will join the crew to delight you with songs and more.
