About us

The Oxford Renaissance Festival has been in operation since 2013. We began our adventure at the Woodstock Fairgrounds, and moved to the Dorchester Fairgrounds in 2016. Ontario has been host to a series of similarly themed festivals for many years, and we are proud to carry on the tradition of celebrating history, live music & entertainment, and artistic endeavors. The Oxford Renaissance Festival is pleased to partner with many fine organizations in order to provide opportunities and culture to the surrounding regions.
Our “Big Event” is the Festival Days  held during the last weekend in June – 2 full days of entertainment, open to the public. Most people plan to stay for several hours, enjoying a meal in our pub, and filling their day with all live opportunities to play along or watch the action. Live music, demonstrations, stage acts, and jousting will give you plenty of renaissance to experience! There are games to play, a storyline to follow, and you could even meet the Queen! On Saturday night the pub stays open after the gates close – and you can party with us with live music all night and our special selection of Renaissance styled beverages, including our specially brewed “FlagonSlayer” beer, Mead, and more! Don’t delay – get your tickets now!

Throughout the year, you may find Special Events put on by the Oxford Renaissance Festival – There is often a Feast with the Queen in the late fall, and Spring events that may include a Queen’s Tea & Fashion Show or a Night at the Pub are in the planning stages. Follow us on Facebook  to stay on top of all the best events!
