Where and when is the faire?
We are currently working on getting a new venue so please check back later for where the Utah Renaissance Faire will be held!
The Utah Renaissance Faire will take place August 25th-26th from 10 am to 8 pm!
We are continuing to monitor the Covid-19 situation in Utah and will respond appropriately as the faire approaches.
In the case that we must follow covid guidelines, here is what we have said in the past:
Dear friends of the Faire, as you know the COVID-19 pandemic is not over, and many are dealing with the ramifications of it. With the rise of the many different variants, we want to make sure that our event is as safe as possible. We have a practicing ER doctor on our board and are following all scientific best practices. In following CDC, Federal and State guidelines the following will be the policy, unless a change is announced, for the Utah Ren Faire:
1) Masks are encouraged but not required. As an outdoor event, we will not be requiring masks to be worn, but we do encourage and ask that you wear a mask to the event. Also, some vendors may require that masks be worn inside their tents or vendor spaces, please respect those requests. In enclosed spaces, that kind of precaution can go a long way.
2) Hand sanitizer will be freely available through the faire. We will have stanchions with hand sanitizer spread throughout the space and bathroom facilities. Please sanitize freely.
3) We ask that you follow social distancing as best as possible. While standing in lines, engaging with our activities, or browsing our amazing vendors please be respectful of other individuals.
4) If you ARE sick, please stay home. All it takes is one person to spread a plague.
We are confident that our event will be safe and enjoyable for all in attendance, and we thank you for your respect and cooperation in trying to keep our communities safe and healthy.
Do you allow alcohol use or sell alcohol on site?
NO ALCOHOL USE OR SALES.
Can I smoke / vape at the fair?
NO SMOKING OR VAPING.
Are you open during bad weather?
We are a rain or shine event!
Are Guests allowed to collect tips or represent themselves as part of the faire?
At the Utah Renaissance Faire, we have quite a few regular guests who come almost every year, wearing elaborate costumes and playing a character. We encourage that. The more folks who are dressed up and playing along, the more fun everyone has. Cosplay of this type is not a problem at all.
The only busking (asking for or receiving tips), that is permitted, is by our registered entertainers. If you wish to join us as a registered entertainer, please go to our Participation page found in the site navigation menu above!
Can I bring my historical weapon?
We have many guests who bring historical weapons of all kinds. If you want to bring yours please bear in mind that we are a family faire and there are thousands of children running around at the event. If you have exposed sharp or otherwise dangerous parts to your weapon that cannot be covered up and made safe, we will need to have you leave them in your vehicle or at our office for safe keeping. All weapons must be sheathed and/or peace-tied while in the park.
Is the park wheelchair accessible?
Do I have to wear a costume?
You are not required to wear a costume as a visitor to our faire. Our staff, volunteers, vendors, artisans, entertainers, etc are required to wear costumes though.
