So yesterday was my first time back at the faire in about 10 years and it was a great time! I went with my parents, 7 year old brother, and my boyfriend (it was his first time ever going). We started by seeing the mud show , and for those who have never seen it, it is hysterical. It's kid... More

These folks always put on a good show. It's fun to see guests in costume and the environment is as close to a medieval village as I will ever get to outside of a book.

I have been going to the Faire for years. I got engaged there, and the I was married there. My husband and I go back every year to celebrate our anniversary. This year was disappointing. All the musical acts I love are gone. We usually start the morning with Giacomo, but he wasn't there, which also meant the Empty Hats... More

I had the opportunity to attend the Pa Renaissance Faire this past weekend. I would say this is a well priced event and worth seeing just for the costumes alone. Even if you are not a history buff of that time frame, it is a great way to spend a day. It is a reasonably priced and there are so... More

I thought this faire was bad back in 2012 but a friend wanted to go so we went again. What a waste of money! First time I ever left a faire early out of boredom! Food is gross! The meat on my cheesesteak tasted like it had been sitting on a steam tble soaking in distilled water for about 3... More

As a history buff and overall fan of festivals like this, I have to say that I was very disappointed this year. First of all - it has always been queen Elizabeth (my favorite Tudor monarch FYI). This year they changed it up to celebrate King Henry VIII, which would have been fine and even added to the interest if... More

I have gone for the last 4 years and haven't been disappointed. Love the mud beggars and this year enjoyed circus Stella and who's jest is it anyway. Also love the brisket. Missed seeing the empty hats this year. Great time!!!!

This is a faire for all ages! Acres and acres of fun, food, shopping, entertainment, museums, Kings & Queens, Ladies & Lords, Knights and Wenches! The pictures on their website do not do it justice. A step back in time that should not be missed! Didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.

We visited the estate over the weekend for the first time it's absolutely beautiful so many wines to choose from at a good price. The renaissance faire was awesome and the people who work there are very helpful with anything you need. I definetly recommend visiting. The only downfall is that the renaissance faire can be very expensive but you... More

I love the Renaissance Faire. It is so different from any other attraction. My advice is to go with family or friends with an open mind and a sense of fun. My first trip a few years ago was with a group of ladies and we had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the whole experience. The area is turned into... More
