Organization Information
The Philadelphia Renaissance Faire is a family-friendly, start-up Renaissance Faire that focuses on creating an immersive, improv-based fantasy Renaissance/medieval experience for patrons of all cultural backgrounds. Now in our third full season, we serve an approximately 3,000-person audience over the course of our 2-weekend season.

The Philadelphia Renaissance Faire does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), ability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients. In fact, we really like diversity. It’s great. We’re extremely diverse ourselves, and expect tolerance and respect from everyone who works with us.
