Get ready to lose yourself in the magic and merriment of the Southern Indiana Renaissance Faire! The faire is moving its location in 2024 and will be held at Swifty Farms in Seymour, IN, about 30 minutes north of Clark County. The faire is also expanding to five weekends, April 27 - May 26, 2024. The Southern Indiana Renaissance Faire features nonstop entertainment, including jousting, musicians, vendors, food and much more! Look for more details on weekend themes as the faire approaches.

No matter which weekend you attend, you'll be treated to mingling with nobility, pirates, and fairies, all in Southern Indiana. Stroll through a village filled with renaissance entertainment, food and drink, and a unique artisan market. You’ll see dedicated actors in authentic costumes and vendors selling medieval- and fantasy-themed wares. You and your family can join in with your own costumes as you sample meals, select treasures to bring home and cheer for your favorite knight as they take to the field on horseback. Costumes are always welcome and encouraged.

The Southern Indiana Renaissance Faire typically hosts more than a dozen performers and over 100 vendors each weekend. Here are a few of our favorites from previous years!

Know Before You Go

If you’ve never been to a Renaissance Faire, you don’t know what you’re missing! Here are some tips for first-timers:  

1. You don’t have to dress up (but it’s more fun if you do). Think of the Knights of the Round Table, Vikings, pirates, faeries, princesses, dukes, queens and kings. You can find costumes in advance right here in SoIN at Horner Novelty in Jeffersonville or at Raven’s Roost Boutique in New Albany. You can also check out or There will be some clothing vendors on-site, too. 

2. Plan your visit ahead of time. Pick up a map when you enter the castle and note times for the acts you want to see, places you want to shop, and food you want to try. 

3. Brush up on your Old English. Don’t be surprised if you hear people saying good-morrow (good morning), privy (bathroom), m’lord (term for men), m’lady (term for women), wee folk (children) and more. 

4. Bring essentials with you. Cash, credit cards, hand sanitizer, wipes, sunscreen, stroller.

5. Pets are not permitted, with the exception of service animals. For the safety of performers and guests, service animals must be leashed at all times and kept away from the Falconer, the stable and the joust.
