 Olde English Faire

After a two-year hiatus, the Olde English Faire returns to Stronghold.  Join us as we reinvent and create the Faire with vendors, entertainers, madrigal performers, music, dancers, tours of the castle, food trucks, falcons, and hayrack rides (weather permitting) in a magical family atmosphere. 

The Stronghold Castle was built in 1928-29 by Mr. Walter Strong, publisher of the Chicago Daily News.  Since 1962, the property has been operating as a Presbyterian Camp and Retreat Center. 

The Olde English Faire is a major annual fundraising event for our Summer Camps. 

Admission is $10.00 per person 

Hours are 9:00-5:00 Saturday & Sunday. 

Please come enjoy the festivities’ while supporting Stronghold.
