The Renaissance Faire

ranaissance Faire in Lancaster County PA
January Enjoy the warmth of our cozy B&B's. Take in a Medieval Feast at Bube's Brewery, or if there is snow on the ground, venture outside for an Amish sleigh ride.
February Treat that special person to a romantic B&B getaway during the "Love Month"! Take in a show and buffet at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater or shop the outlets for bargains.
March For a special taste of Lancaster, your favorite B&B can arrange dinner with an Amish family. Or take in a mudsale at a local firehall, a Lancaster County spring tradition.
April April brings tulips, daffodils, and hyacinth to the local farmers markets. Take time out to find that special collectible you've been hunting for at the antique extravaganza in Adamstown. Or sign-up for a quilting seminar at the Quilters Heritage Celebration.
May Watch the Amish plow and plant their fields with their six-mule teams. Celebrate Heritage Month at the Bank Museum and The Cloisters. Enjoy funnel cakes and whoopie pies at local town carnivals.
June Top-rated destination for outdoor enthusiasts, Lancaster offers a wonderful variety of hiking, biking, and walking trails down back country roads, parks, and old railroad beds. Come celebrate craft, food, and folk fairs and sample fresh strawberries, raspberries, and cherries. Enjoy a buggy ride that will take you past Amish quilts hung out on clothes lines and give you a chance to watch Amish farmers harvest wheat.
July Celebrate our country's birthday with an open air concert and fireworks at Long's Park. Enjoy dinner theater in the woods, a round of top rated miniature golf at the Village Greens, and a scrumptious breakfast at your favorite B&B.
August Slow down for the hazy, hot, lazy days of August in the cool comfort of our B&B's. Meander down a country road where cornfields are high and Amish children sell produce in little roadside stands. Take along a picnic basket and sample some wine from Nissley's Vineyard at "Music Under the Stars," featuring light jazz.
September Reserve your B&B early for fall - it's our busiest time of the year. Experience the Renaissance Faire, the Amazing maize Maze, or an olde-time steam engine ride through our Amish farmland.
October Go on a hayride on a farm where you can pick your own pumpkin. Visit a local farmer's market for homemade blue-ribbon pies, jellies, and mums. Only in Lancaster County can you find our annual "Bridge Bust," where we close the Wrightsville Bridge over the Susquehanna River to car traffic. Wander for a mile and a half past antique, craft, and flea market stands.
November November is wedding month for our Amish neighbors. The cool days invite you to search out our native farm stands, overflowing with pumpkins, gourds, apples, pears, hay bales, and cornstalks.
December Everyone comes to shop at outlets, craft stores, markets, and the Petit Museum of Musical Boxes. After you "shop till you drop," there are concerts and holiday house tours galore. Our B&B's are filled with sights and sounds of the Christmas season.
