The Mount Hope Estate and Winery isn’t only open during the summer months for the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. Throughout the year the site features all manner of indoor and outdoor entertainment. From February through April you will find several shows such as “Comedy in the Pub” and “Pyrate Feaste in the Swashbuckler Pub”. In May there’s the annual “Great Green America Fest”, an environmentally focused event featuring food and wares, information and entertainment. During June, visitors are to the estate are taken on a tour of Scotland and Ireland during the “Celtic Fling and Highland Games”, which features food, merchants, music and merriment.

From July through October the grounds of the estate are transformed into a 16th century town and market for the “Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire” which lasts a total of 12 weekends, some with themed events. With the Queen and her Royal Court holding events throughout the shire, entertainers performing on 13 stages, merchants and tons of food prepared by her majesty’s chefs there is more to do than any one can see in just one day.

In August and September the Victorian style Mansion on the grounds also opens for “Friday Knights at the Improv”. Here cast members of the Renaissance Faire join together to perform off the cuff comedy, creating some of the funniest skits around and no two are ever alike. Throughout November Edgar Allen Poe’s works come to life in “Edgar Allen Poe Evermore”. And finally in December “A Dickens of a Christmas” and “Charles Dickens Victorian Christmas” gets you in the spirit with holiday trimmings and cheer.
