7. New York Renaissance Faire, Tuxedo Park, NY
Excited about the medieval times? Yes, I am!!! The excitement is over the moon for the opening of the Faire coming up this August. I always look forward to visit Tuxedo Park and Renaissance Faire.
Renaissance Faire brings back to life the era of the Queens and knights, epical fights, fun and colorful dances and also delicious food proper from that period.
The Faire feature more than 125 performances in different stages, all set within 65 acres of gorgeous forest. By the way parking fill up fast I recommend to come early even though the gates open at 10 A.M.
