Sterling Forest

Travel back in time for an amusing romp through 30 acres of Elizabethan England, with games, rides, food, fairies, performances, and roving actors jovially interacting with the crowd. Of course, wearing period attire adds to the fun and can be rented or purchased on-site.

For an added fee, kids can enjoy Boffer Wars and Kids' Quest. 

Read our full write-up of the event here. Set within the Majestic Groves of the Sterling Forest, visitors stroll through the quaint village while being entertained by performers in period costumes. Cheer your favorite knight at the Joust Tournament. Meet Robin Hood and his Merry Men. Feast on savory sweets (turkey leg, anyone?) and tempting treats. Watch a Living Chess Match and laugh at tall tales. Then, play a game of skill or chance and hop aboard one of the rides like the Dragon Swing. 

Note that discount tickets are available from select retailers throughout the tristate area. View the faire's ticket page for details.

Rain or shine.
