A Renaissance Festival on Castle Grounds
CastleFaire 2024 was a blast!
Since it was Uhuburg's first Renaissance festival, we learned a lot and have tremendous appreciation for the supportive vendors and entertainers, flexible patrons, problem solving staff, and community partners that all made CastleFaire possible. Vendors, staff and patrons alike were really impressed with how many people dressed for the occasion in garb and costumes of all kinds ~ it's without a doubt that you all made CastleFaire extra special (pictures are being added to the Gallery below!). It was powerful to witness all the enthusiasm for this festival and Uhuburg. Thank you. We plan to do it again, same time, same place!

First Year Reflections
We appreciate your feedback. Some of key items we'll work on increasing and improving for next time:
More buses (we had 4 by Sunday!), seating in the Great Hall, alternatives to shuttle transfer particularly for those with accessibility needs, ticket quantity, heaters, trash cans, hand warmers for sale (maybe cloaks too?) and more.
FAQ: Why is CastleFaire in January?
The community businesses that partnered with Uhuburg to provide off-site parking, buses and drivers are not available at other times.
It's the time of year vendors and entertainers said they have availability.
We want to provide the opportunity for you to wear all that winter garb you have. Kidding aside, thanks for braving the cold with us. We loved how many folks expressed enthusiasm for bringing out the wool, furs and velvet!
FAQ: Can I bring my dog?
Pets are not allowed on the grounds at this time.
