Renaissance Faire

Renaissance Faire, April 30th and May 1st from 10am to 6pm

Join the players of the New Jersey Renaissance Faire and travel back to the days of yore and merry olde England as the historic village of Smithville is transformed into the Shire of Smithville in the heart of the English Renaissance.  The good Duke of Northumberland has decreed merriment for all. Fun for the whole family including comedy, tragedy, sword fighting, dance, song, knights, jesters and so much more.  Also stroll amongst the wares of the local vendors and traveling merchants sporting historical gifts and finely crafted items.  Visit the website of the New Jersey Renaissance Faire at and feel free to send us a missive via ye olde email at


Here is some of what we have going on:

This year the stages will be graced by the Lords of Adventure comedy sword fighting show, Shelli Buttons aerial acrobatics show, the musical talents of Pieces of 8 and Iron Hill Vagabonds as well as fire performances and magic by Doug Stafford.

The Village Greene will also host additional craftsmen and merchants selling their wares for the shopping pleasure of the Duchess and our patrons.
