This season the Maryland Renaissance Festival will be scheduling wedding ceremonies only. Weddings will take place at 11:00 am in front of the Chapel (just up the hill from the Fortune Stage). The Festival is open rain or shine. Please be advised that this area is an outdoor space and exposed to the elements. Sorry, no decorations or flowers are allowed.
Weddings can be scheduled from September 15th through October 21st. Please call 1-800-296-7304 after January 1 to check on date availability.
The cost to secure the stage for a wedding is a non-refundable $100. Scheduling is on a first-come, first-served basis. The wedding party and guests must pay for their own tickets for entry. Ticket rates can be found under our general ticket information. Discounts are available for parties of 20 or more.
It is required that the wedding party be properly costumed. While this is ultimately the wedding party's sole responsibility, the faire does have costumes available for rental. Costumes are optional (but encouraged!) for wedding guests. If you wish to purchase a costume, the Festival can help by providing a list of craftspeople from the festival who design and create costumes.
Please note that the wedding party should arrange to be in costume before their arrival at the Festival. We have no public facilities on the festival grounds for changing other than the public privies.
If you wish, for an additional fee you can have an appropriately attired cleric to officiate at your wedding - Cardinal Sinnius Vice! Sinnius is Tony Guida, who is an ordained minister in the Universal Life Church. He is licensed to perform weddings in Maryland, and can be reached at (301) 229-0307, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All fee and scheduling arrangements must be made through Tony, so please contact him directly for this information.
If you have additional questions about booking weddings at the faire please forward them by email to the MRF Office.
