Posts Tagged ‘Halloween Knight at CTRF’

Earlier this week, I posted a link to a video for the after dark joust for Halloween Knights, going on at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire every Saturday night and on Sunday Oct 7th as well, just so you could get a taste of what the spooky part of the faire would be like.

But that’s not all that’s happening.

The faire is full of fabulous events that happen every weekend. Catch such acts as the Tribal de Luna bellydance troop, Circus Stella with their fabulous combination of strength and flexibility, aerial acts and talented canines performers, the music of the Trouvieres or the Lost Boys, the laughter of Commedia Mania or the Pope and the Cardinal, and the sheer fun of Vixens En Guarde. And that’s not even taking into account all of the going on in King Arthur’s Court!

But there are also themes and events that are special to each weekend

This weekend is Time Traveller Weekend, when visitors from other genres than the medieval are especially welcome. Steampunk or Star Wars, fantasy or Dr Who- this weekend is especially for you. This weekend you can

     -Enter the Cosplay costume contest (10/6)

     -Enter the Steampunk costume contest (10/7)

     -See fantasy artist, Jane Star Weils (6-8)    

     – Attend a book signing with R.A. and Geno Salvatore(10/6)             

     – Join our fingerdancers on Deaf Awareness Day (Oct 6)

     -Join us for safe trick or treat (10/6,7,13,20,27)

     – Enter the kids costume contest during Halloween Knights (10/6,7)

     -See the Owl-o- Ween show, during Halloween Knights (10/6,7)

     -Attend the Babes in Bodices contest (10/7)

     -Attend or enter the Men in Kilts contest (10/8)

And that’s all in addition to all of the regular wonderful the faire is made up of.

(That includes us, the psychics of Foresight. We’ll be there doing readings and Reiki and selling my books and having a wonderful time out of time.)

In short, this is gonna be a busy weekend at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire, and just crammed full of awesome. It’s so nice, you may have to do it twice.

And there’s three more weekends beyond this one…

There’s been three weekends of medieval festivities and now the Connecticut Renaissance Faire enters the haunted time of the year.

It’s a were-faire! By day, the regular renaissance faire that we all know and love, and by night, something….darker….

On the next two Saturdays of CTRF, the faire will be open for two extra hours on Saturday nights (at no extra charge to you, our beloved patrons…).

During these hours, you’ll see

  • Safe Trick or Treat for the little ones;
  • A costume contest where you can show off your best look;


  • Halloween Knight where three unholy terrors compete for the right to escape from Limbo;

Plus all of the wonders traditionally found at Connecticut Renaissance Faire,

Including the psychics of Foresight, of course.

We’ll be looking out for you….
