We highly recommend Arsene Dupin's "Magikhana" show. Highly entertaining! Also, the Washing Well Wenches and Ded Bob are hysterical if you're attending without children. They're so naughty!

bring enough $ as food is expensive. Water is allowed to be brought in, but no food is allowed in so picnic lunch is out - perhaps a good idea as park was clean despite the number of people who attended.

So much to see - important to check schedule for events of interest, map important to have to plan the day to attend and see all that is of interest. Only event schedule is free; map with explanation of events must be purchased but is necessary to plan the day's activities.

Workers/performers were especially friendly, welcoming and helpful. Everyone treated with the utmost respect. Also, it was impressing that ALL performers engaged the audience which made the event especially fun-filled.

You can bring drinks in your bag.. No one checked. Bring cash to tip some of the acts! And, be prepared to walk..

We brought a backpack in because I didn't want to carry a purse and no one even looked in it, so we definitely could have saved ourselves a bit of money and snuck in food. I'm sure you could do the same.

If you live in Manhattan, Coach USA/Shortline bus has a special bus that makes a trip out to the fair leaving from Port Authority at 10am and then picks you back up at the RenFair to bring you home at 6:45pm. It was 31.50 per person round trip and was totally worth it!
