The Delaware Renaissance Faire returns for the Fall 2023 season, offering an expanded schedule with three exciting weekends of festivities. Following the success of last year's inaugural Delafaire, which drew 3,000 enthusiastic attendees and resulted in a sold-out weekend, organizers are ready to triple the excitement as they take over Firebase Lloyd in Townsend.
Festivalgoers can look forward to a host of new additions and entertainment options this year, with 20 pro acts from around the country.
Over the course of the Faire, over 90 craft vendors will create a bustling marketplace, selling era-themed clothing, jewelry, hand-crafted gifts, and much more. There will be activities for the whole family, from archery and axe-throwing to blacksmith and pottery demonstrations. Kids will love the petting zoo, “unicorn” (pony) rides, and Renaissance-themed carnival games with prizes.
Guests can also savor Renaissance-era favorites like turkey legs and Scotch eggs, as well as food truck classics such as chicken, burgers, and barbecue. There’s a dedicated gluten-free vendor and multiple vendors offer vegetarian options. The locally sourced pub will be staffed by The Brimming Horn Meadery, who will serve up their award-winning mead as well as a selection of local beers. A
portion of the pub proceeds will benefit the Choose Joy Foundation, a Delaware-based 501(c)(3) organization.
