First, if you want to watch tons of great costumes & characters wandering around the event, that is really the best part of the faire. However, we really couldn't enjoy ourselves for a number of reasons as follows: Where do I start... On Sunday...continued

Not much "pleasure" here. Thank goodness it was an overcast and not-too-hot day! Getting tickets was a nightmare, with over one hour in line and major chaos because they seemed unprepared for all the people. After 49 years in L.A. this was our...

A lovely day at the Faire. They always put on a great show and it seemed like there was a lot more shade and space this year. Huzzah!

2 hours to get into the parking lot! Only one entrance and NO ONE directing traffic. People cutting in and getting into fights. Never again. What a waste of time... I want my money and time back.

What a stinkin' dust bowl, $10 to park in the dirt, and the dirt parking is up wind from the venue. My wife was far from happy, as like most ladies, she showered before going out on Sunday, and she insisted we leave 5 minutes after we entered the...continued

I LOVE the RenFaire and dressing up in costume for it! And it is so much better at the Irwindale location than Glen Helen - The Washing Wenches show was hilarious! It was a fabulous day and I look forward to next year.

Fabulous opening day at the Faire!! Perfect weather, sunny and cool! It was very put together, and everyone seemed ready to PLAY!! We go every year and may go twice this year! Dressing up is a MUST!!
I was delighted to find tickets on Goldstar.

We had a lovely day! Both of us dressed as pirate wenches! Cooler morning then a bit warmer afternoon. It was a microcosm of humanity! The Faire never disappoints :)

What can be said about this that I'm sure hasn't already been said? Some of the best food, best costumes, best vendors, best music and best entertainment around. The jousts, parades, royals (especially when performing Shakespeare) and Washing...continued

A winner all around! Parking was easy and well organized. Not too far to walk to the entrance. The food is excellent, many types to choose from and reasonably priced. Even the beer was a decent price. Lots of vendors, variety of items for sale,...continued

OMG!!! Why have I never been before??? It was so much fun! Most people were in costume which added to the fun atmosphere. Great food choices, arts and crafts for the kids, and plenty of fun shows for all ages :)

This event was highly recommended by many to me. I was not impressed at all. The food selections/vendors were few. The only good performance was the jousting. There were just too many small shops selling this items and that items, it was a...continued

This has always been one of my favorite events to attend. I hope to go one more time before it leaves this year, but if not, I will definitely go next year. And, I'll be sure to dress up next time as well . . . Great for families, couples,...continued
