Or, if you are an Adventureland Platinum Season Pass holder, you will be able to enter the faire free from inside Adventureland via a new “Park to Faire” bridge.

Established in 2004, we are the oldest Renaissance faire in Des Moines, produced by the same folks that brought the first Renaissance festival here in 1993. We only produce family-friendly events. (We are NOT the faire that also produces a 21+ event.) #Safe4Kids
This is the “Des Moines Renaissance Faire” that has been at Water Works Park (2004), Iowa State Fairgrounds (2004-2005), Sleepy Hollow property (2006-2015), Puttmasters At The Pines (2019-2021) and now Adventureland Resort in Altoona. Our faire family looks forward to seeing you again!
