Editor's Pick: 

Travel back in time at the New York Renaissance Faire, an amusing romp through 30 acres of Elizabethan England, with games, rides, food, music, and performances, with roving actors jovially interacting with the crowd. Join the fun in period attire (for rent or sale).

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 brightly costumed performers. 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. Experience amazing acrobats, magicians, jugglers, swashbuckling pirates and more. Watch a Living Chess Match and laugh at tall tales. Play a game of skill or chance and hop aboard one of the exciting rides like the Dragon Swing. Browse the Marketplace featuring over 100 artisans.

Admission includes all entertainment, the jousts, parades, the on-going spectacle of hundreds of performers in street and stage performances, making music and holding a dance. There are interactive living history exhibits, craft demonstrations, a battle pageant, and activities for children are available at Kids Kingdom.

On August 11 and 12, kids aged 12 and under are admitted for free! No coupon is necessary. Additionally, there's the Children's Costume Parade and Contest, when kids get to show off their best renaissance attire (don't worry--there's plenty to purchase while you're there)! A similar agenda is in store for Pirate Weekend, scheduled for September 8 and 9--with the added perk of meeting a "real" mermaid. Other themed weekends are noted on the faire's website.

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