Get yourself a B & B room to make it a great weekend. Greenwood Lake area is very charming. The Tuxedo area is also nice.

People who don't have car can also take direct bus from Port Authority or train from Grand Central. Free parking lot gets full so rather pay $10 parking that they available

The parking space across the faire is $10. The free parking space is further but there's a free shuttle bus. Get there early so you don't miss out on the prefer parking space.

There's food for sale but if you don't love turkey legs, bring your own cooler with food. You can go back to your car to eat, just stamp your hand before leaving the fair.

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.
