The Renaissance Faire park is a theme park style English village, featuring beautiful landscaping, over forty unique buildings, and one of the largest “castles” in America. Iowa’s only permanent Renaissance village is the home of two annual events.
The Rennaissance Faire at Sleepy Hollow
The Renaissance Faire at Sleepy Hollow in Des Moines, IA is a magical experience for both young and old. When you enter our gates for the first time you will go back in time to an era when kings and queens ruled, knights jousted, and the arts came alive!
Open the first 3 weekends in September plus Labor Day every year. This year we will be returning to our 10am-6pm hours!
