What is RenQuest™? How do I join?

  RenQuest is an interactive theatrical gaming experience offering players an opportunity to experience the living world of the Bristol Renaissance Faire through completing quests, honing skills and defeating evil villains. The game spans the 30-acre Faire grounds and boasts over 30 NPCs (non-playing characters) dedicated to enriching the fantasy experience for players. New to Bristol? There is no better way to become acquainted with the Faire and its inhabitants than by playing RenQuest. Regular season-pass member of the Faire? RenQuest is a great way to experience characters, shops and our beautiful scenery in a whole new light. “Live thy adventure!”  

Once you have decided to strike out on great adventure, you may purchase your day of play at the RenQuest™ Red Vardo.

  RenQuest™ Pricing:  
  Game play is $10 per day, recommended for ages 12 and up. Sign up at the RenQuest Red Vardo, located near the Cheshire Chase stage on your Faire map. If you have finished the core story but wish to pursue advanced achievements then RenQuest™ costs $5 per day. This price is in addition to the gate ticket price and does not offer any gate ticket discounts.  
  RenQuest™ offers interactive characters and prizes that are not available to the causal faire-attendee. In years past we have awarded hand blown glass goblets, hand bound leather journals, limited edition print artwork and a custom fantasy portrait featuring our grand champion in the picture! You cannot purchase these items anywhere on site - they are only available to those who play RenQuest™!

  More Information  

If you want more information about the quests and about playing before choosing to play, go to the RenQuest™ Camp. This is the home of the Band of the Twisted Claw. It’s marked on the Faire map with the RenQuest™ logo and is across from the Friends of Faire Garden.

Any of the gypsies of the Band can explain more about playing and the fees.


As you complete your quests, return to the RenQuest™ Camp to register your points earned and to receive further orders.

Be sure to check in at the end of your day of Adventuring so that the Band of the Twisted Claw may obtain a final point tally and keep your quest sheet safe.

At the end of the weekend, Travelers’ points are all tallied and the individual and class leaders are posted on the Bristol Renaissance Faire website. Click to see the Champions page.

  Returning to Play Another Day  

Check in at the RenQuest™ Camp to receive your current player sheet and next quest. It’s just that simple!


The Pub Crawl castThe Bristol 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. Try not to spill as you jiggle with merriment at the most bodacious songs, jests, jokes, stories and riddles the shire has to offer. 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!

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.
