FYI - as in the 15th century there was no pavement. As a heads up expect shoes, socks and feet with open toe shoes or sandals to get dusty. Don't wash your car until after the fair! Bring along some Ziplock bags to take home some goodies to eat. Bring enough cash. ATMs are available, but there are fees for use. Average cost for food items is about $10+ . Consider bringing your own water as it costs about $3-$4 for a bottle at the faire. A hat and sunscreen are helpful. Also bring snacks (fruit, granola/protein bars, trail mix, etc.) to hold you over until you're ready to spend the bucks on bigger bites to satisfy your hunger.

The weather was Very hot. I wore I always go in a costume. I highly recommend it, even if it's not exactly period. You really will have more fun if you take the time to put on a costume. My first costumes were from thrift stores so they don't have to be expensive. But the experience is so much more fun when you walk through the gates and back in time and are dressed in a costume..

There is plenty of food if you are willing to pay the prices. There was several interesting types of food like most fairs. There was some great beer and wine concoctions. You can bring water in but no outside food.
