I think this is what you and I should do one of these days. Once the horde of tourists leave. Which they will do on…
Did you mean to reblog this in response to me, mylittlewolfie? You reblogged it from yourself, so I can’t tell!
But I am definitely interested in going some time soon, if you were talking to me! <3
Yes, I did. I don’t know how that happened… something to do with this new pop out thing Tumblr does when you click on a post. But, yes, we should go! :D

What I think? I think it’s amazing and I wish I could go every weekend, and if you have the chance to go, you definitely should! Keep an eye on the NYRF Facebook page (or just their webpage if you don’t use FB) around December because they usually have a holiday sale where you can get the tickets for $10 off!
As far as what to see… I’m assuming by “places” you mean the shows? The grounds are big, but you can walk around them in just a day. It’s the shows that you won’t be able to see all of in a single day. The shows will differ slightly from year to year, but some of the staples that are my favorites are “Hey, Nunnie Nunnie,” “Vixens en Garde,” and the “Washing Well Wenches.” The chess matches are a good show too—there is usually a Sherriff’s match around 1pm, and a Queen’s match around 4. The final event of the day is the Joust which is always very crowded, so get to the tilt early if you want a good seat!
As for the rest of it, Moresca is my favorite place to drool over Faire garb, and the leather goods store right across the way has great accessories (hats, bracers, pouches, belts, etc.) for decent prices. The booth that sells elf and fairy ears near the Hawker’s Pub is always really popular, and the fish and chips at the booth in the Greenfield Common are quite good.
I feel like a Faire can be a different experience for everyone who goes because there really is something for everyone. Some people drink lots of mead and then throw tomatoes at Rotten Revenge and then sit around telling bawdy jokes. Some people drape themselves in silky clothes and shop and stalk the fairies all day. Some people spend all day going from one show to another. I tend to put on my fanciest gown and follow the Queen and her court around trying to get pictures of their gowns from every possible angle. It’s really up to you! Go and have fun!
