I attend the Ren Faire, every single year. As a budget careful traveler I usually attend during the Red Cross Blood Drive (free ticket), opening two weekends (buy one get one), or when I find them on Half.com. I always purchase the mug or cup that lets me drink all day much cheaper and I stay from open to close.... More

This was my 3rd visit, and it WON'T be my last!!! With different weekend themes, there's something for everyone-no matter how old, or how young (adult themed shows are marked). I was part of the Hypnotist's act this time, and I really hope they bring him back, as this was the most fun I've had!!! If you're planning a trip... More

This is the renaissance faire to go to in the northeast if you have children in strollers or family members in wheelchairs. The grounds are fully paved and although the hills will be challenge, you won't find any other NE faire this accessible.

This is my 3rd visit here for the Renaissance faire, I always feel like I step back in time walking around the grounds. The place is beautiful with the buildings and grounds in period settings. The people working there are so nice and really enjoy putting on a show for you. The food is great and the shops sell everything... More

While the food was good and shoppes were quaint, some of the shows were quite raunchy. Staff was quite helpful. No desire to go back. Too much alcohol and cigarettes for my liking.

If new to this go the 1st weekend with the BOGO coupons available in stores listed on the Faire's site. It is pricey. If you know you like it might as well buy the season pass and try to go every weekend. Although there is plenty of free shows and the people in character make for great entertainment, prepare to...

The Renaissance Faire is a truly wonderful experience from the moment you walk into the gates to the moment you leave. The performers engage everyone with equal passion and fun, whether children, adult or elder. Once inside the gate visitors will find a wealth of shows and entertainment. Everyone can find something to enjoy; there is music from various cultures,... More

We had heard about the Renaissance faire but were all completely overwhelmed at the enormity of it. We had no idea! The site is extremely large and is set up just like a Renaissance Village complete with jousting contests and fantastic music. Most, but not all, we're dressed in period clothing which was fabulous to look at. The shops were... More
