After changing over to a slightly different ticketing system we are finally almost there, We are excited to make the ticket announcement that 2018 Renaissance Faire at Sleepy Hollow passes will be going on sale mid-July. Keep an eye here and our social media pages for the exact date. Along with our change to weekend passes that we announced a few months ago there are a few more major additions and changes for this year that you should be aware of.
For the past 12 years, our faire has always started at 10 am, after much consideration of morning traffic the decision was made to push the opening gate back by one hour. The hours of our event are now 11am-6pm. We hope that this change will address some of the slow times and it will also be making room for a special new after-hours event, see below for more details.
Camping at Sleepy Hollow is a new addition in 2018. Camping must be reserved ahead of time along with the purchase of your ticket at sleepyhollowtickets.com. Camping is open the Friday and Saturday nights of each faire weekend, on Labor Day weekend camping is available Sunday night as well.
A primitive camping spot is $5 per person staying at the site. Bring your own tent and bedding and you can set up just outside the Faire. When you check in you will be directed to your campsite and will be able to drive up to it to drop off your equipment. Once set up you will need to return your vehicle to the parking lot. All the campsites are a short walk from the bridge which leads to the Renaissance Faire Village.
A limited number of premium camping spots are available for purchase for $30 per night. These campsites can be used for Motor Homes/travel trailers with electric and water hookups. Each premium spot is for 2 people. If additional people will be staying at the premium site it will be an additional $5 per person. You can also feel free reserve these areas for tent camping if you would like easy access to power and water.
