The weather was overcast. I wore Tank, short shorts, SNEAKERS!!! For all that is holy, wear sensible footwear with which you don't mind trudging through dirt and possibly mud. It gets dirty beneath ye olde skirts..

Premium parking is $15, but then you're right by the gates. Would not advise taking any sort of public transportation, if it even exists, out into the woods.

Get your tickets in advance lines for purchasing them are very long. Dress in costume to really enjoy the event.

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!

Check with the Faire website for discounts. Goldstar sold us tickets for the kids yet kids were free last weekend.

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.
