Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire Update

 Hail and well met! Come ye hither for tonnes of merriment! Prepare for a time when we greeted kings & queens, sword fighting was rampant, mud throwing was still dirty and you could have a swashbuckling good time.

We can arrive at the campsite between 4pm & 9pm.  Keep in mind that parking is not next to the site so you will need to walk and carry your supplies to the camp site.  There is a link to a map below so you can see where the parking lot is in relation to the camp site.

We are able to bring food and cook on site so I will be bringing my camp stove.  Make sure to either have dinner before arriving Wednesday evening or bring it with you. Also be sure to bring Thursday’s breakfast and lunch with you. They do have an area for keeping lunch coolers so if you do have a cooler with you be sure it is tagged with your name and Pack 155. The Faire will have  concession stands available on Thursday but this will not be until after 9:00 pm.  The cost of meals purchased will average $6-8 per person. Again, you can find a link to their menus below.

We are encouraged to dress up if we like. I would suggest if the boys would like, they dress as pirates. Though no weapons, They are allowed a cardboard sword or hook ( as per Faire rules). Make sure we are in clothes that can get dirty as you will see in the schedule attached below. You May even want to bring a change for the end of the day.

Since we will be sleeping under the stats it is important that you bring the appropriate supplies as usual. Here are item lists that are essential for a safe and enjoyable event.
