New York Renaissance Faire Reviews
One of the loveliest Renaissance faires in the country! This beautiful, well-groomed former botanical garden is the setting for top-notch performers and world-class artisans. One can truly escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life simply by wandering this luscious forest site. So much to see and do so little time! – Nixie Travels
The New York Renaissance fair was an amazing opportunity to experience a family fun day, full of entertaining, magical creatures and costumes as well as good food all across. The ambiance was great, fantastic products and magical structures really take you back in time. Absolutely recommended place to visit with family and friends! – Jherlyn Lopez
Excellent faire with lots of attendees in costumes. Interesting food and performances, awesome music, and lots of costume stores. Don’t worry if you don’t own costumes, you can easily buy some at the faire itself. Don’t miss it if you’re into fantasies! – Di Lu
This was my first time visiting the New York Renaissance Faire and it was definitely a fun experience. There were many people dressed like the times, and all of the staff spoke in the vernacular. As a newbie, it was cool to look at all of the costumes and appreciate the dedication the staff members have for staying in their character. There are so many shops, from candle making to tons of food options (massive turkey legs are a huge hit, as well as mead), to wooden swords, to medieval clothing, to fresh olive oil. The list really is endless. Be prepared with lots of cash because there are many games to play also. Ax throwing, knife throwing, archery, throwing tomatoes at a man whose job it is to insult you. That list too goes on and on too. There are also quite a bit of children’s games. There are shows at different times throughout the day, as well as parades that randomly pass through the streets as you’re walking. We watched a joust, rode a camel, got a henna tattoo, ate the largest funnel cake of my life, and I got a sunflower dipped in candle wax which should last many, many years. I loved the experience and my family and I will most certainly be returning next year for more fun. – Angela Pulella
