The New York Renaissance Faire is celebrating it’s 35th anniversary this year. The faire operates every Saturday and Sunday from August 4th until September 23, 2012 from 10AM to 7PM rain or shine.
You’ll enjoy a variety of entertainment from musical groups & acrobats to magicians and pirates. Admission at the gate is $22 for teens and adults and $11 for children ages 5-12. Adults can save $2 and children $1 per day if you purchase your tickets online at the ren faire’s website.
This Saturday September 8th is even more special as it is the 3rd Annual ASL Day. The faire will have American Sign Language interpreters available at 6 different stages to translate the happenings to those with hearing problems.
You can even make plans to get married at the ren faire. Check out this YouTube video of one of the 2011 wedding ceremonies.
Don’t forget if you use swords and knives as part of your Ren Faire costume make sure they are peace tied for safety.
