this is a great faire..not too big..not too small. Great storyline...I believe Bret the "curious" magician will be there and he always puts on a very funny show. Wolgemut and the Rogues for music..beer and wine..and the privies are across a beautiful green field..nice. we are going the first 2 weekends of may..LF

We welcome all Marylanders to the CTRF shows. The more the Maryier! I have been to your MRF, really enjoyed it, usually catch the Pennsylvania Ren Faire while I am down your way.

Well, they had the Rogues here last year, and I think that they will be in CT for this year's faire again.   I know that they're big at the Maryland faire, but I catch them every time I get the chance.  I,m volunteering, and will likely be greeting you at the front gate - see you there!

I've never seen the Rogues but have heard good things about them so I'm looking forward to seeing them. Another group that I do know will be at CTRF, and I recommend them highly: Wolgemut. Don't leave without catching their show--you won't regret it!

You'll have a great time--I went last week. Be sure not to miss Vixens en Garde--they're a blast. Also recommend Wolgemut, Curious Magic, and the Limey Birds. Enjoy!

You will have a great time, daniel paul..this is a most fun and impressive smaller faire.( we were there last year ) The big name shows are always good, but the story line and thespians are not to be missed either. Life got in the way, so we could not make it yet, but are aiming to be there on closing weekend..Can't believe the weeks flew by so quickly :((

Went yesterday  and had a great time . Really missed being there as a vender so i had to settle for being an in costume patron . my kids really enjoyed the rat show and flea circus .I like that they have animals there , they were great .
