Can I bring my historical weapon?


We have many guests who bring historical weapons of all kinds.

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?


The venue is an 11 acre, fenced park with grass fields, cement, and asphalt walkways, and a large metal pavilion near the center. It is nearly all flat (aside from the small knolls that border the park) and our events are wheelchair accessible throughout. There are 3 gatehouses and each of them have ADA-compliant bathrooms with multiple stalls and changing tables. Within the park are water drinking fountains, with the ability to connect water hoses, located near the gatehouses and the large metal pavilion. We do not have wheelchairs for rent.

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.

Are you open during bad weather?
