Weekend Dates & Themes
Each weekend has a different theme and a corresponding costume contest and Friday night party theme. Keep in mind that your costume has to be on-theme for the contest, and also that you’ll need separate tickets if you want to attend the after-hours parties.
- August 5-6: Cogs & Corsets on the High Seas. The opening weekend’s theme is a combination of steampunk and pirates!
- August 12-13: An Enchanted World of Mythical Beasts & Beings. The second weekend is fantasy themed, so dress as a fairy, elf, dragon, troll, wizard, unicorn, or any other mythical being.
- August 19-20: Invaders From the North: Vikings & Valkyries. Wear leather, fur, face paint, and braids for the closing weekend that has a Vikings and Valkyries theme.
What is there to do at the Faire?
In addition to each weekend’s costume themes, there will be food and drink vendors, skilled artisans selling pottery, clothing, art, and accessories, live music and entertainment, puppets and story times for kids, LARPing, jousting, and more.
