Every Faire Day: Kids Quest

Looking for adventure? Excitement? Treasure?! So are Jill and Little Bo Peep! Join our adventurers-for-hire as they frolic through the town of Bristol searching for treasure and excitement. Help Bristol’s fairy tale citizens and be a part of their story. Specifically for our players aged 4-10, these 20-30 minute quests begin at the RenQuest™ Camp twice daily (2pm & 4pm) and cost $5 per child to play. The first quest is completely different than the second quest so you may do either or both! Size is limited so sign up early. Parents must accompany children while on the quest.

Every Faire Day: The Pub Crawl

Play the best beer game this side of 1599 and party like a Royal at Bristol's legendary Pub Crawl. Join the loud and lusty pub crawl crew, skip long lines as they personally amuse you along the village streets to several fine taverns and public houses. Travel with your own bartender, for immediate service, and choose from more than 20 beers on tap or a delicious mead as you go. We also offer a gluten free cider. FOUR alcoholic drinks are included in the Pub Crawl - one at each pub.

The Pub Crawl departs at 11am, 12pm, 1:30pm and 2:30pm on Saturdays. The Pub Crawl departs at 11am, 12pm and 2:00pm on Sundays. Tickets are $35 and are available online. Pub Crawl tickets purchased online must be redeemed at the Will Call Window in the Box Office. You must redeem your ticket at the Will Call window to receive your Pub Crawl wristband.You may only Crawl once per day!

The Pub Crawl sells out quickly. Day-of tickets may be available at the RenQuest Encampment (across from Friends of Faire). We recommend online purchase before you arrive at Bristol to guarantee your spot. A ticket to the Pub Crawl does not include admission to The Bristol Renaissance Faire. You will need an admission ticket and a Pub Crawl ticket if you wish to join the Pub Crawl. Must be 21 to participate (IDs will be checked for everyone). Children are not permitted on the Pub Crawl. Please drink responsibly, we like return customers!
