Has anyone been to the PA RenFaire?  Is it kid friendly? I think it would be interesting to go to.  I’m thinking of taking a day trip this year.  (It runs Sept-Oct)  I’d love to camp there but I’m booked this year so it would be a 2015 camping trip.  Pinch Pond Campground (where we were for the spring opener) is 2 miles from the faire. 

My son will be 5 this year and 6 next year, would he enjoy it?

We have been to the one in NY and it very kid friendly. As Bad seed said plan as much of the day as possible. Because you will be close a nap during the heat of the day will be possible. Have a turkey leg.

I’ve  been there quite a few times, a few with family, but more often driving field trips for work. On the wknds, it’s open to the public, but during the wk, they have special hours for class trips. The weekday shows are a bit tamed down, but even during the wknd, most of the adult humor goes right over the kids’ heads, anyway. There’s plenty to see, do, & eat & drink while there. The jousting, the human chess board, pirate stuff, & the antics & magic of the jesters are usually a hit with the kids.

They have jousting there??  I was talking with DW about how the next time we go to NJ we should eat at Medievil Times so DS can see the jousting.  Sounds like we can  kill 2 birds with 1 stone by going to the Ren Faire. 

Aren’t the turkey legs not real turkey legs or something?  I’m not saying I’m not going to eat one but I thought I read somewhere that it is just Turkey attached to a bone or something and not like when you have a chicken leg.  I am looking forward to eating one.

The human chess board sounds like it would be interesting for a bit, I don’t know if DS could stay for an entire game.

I’ve never sat through an entire one! We kind of use it as a place to sit & take a breather. It’s an outside amphitheater & folks also sit on the surrounding lawn, so you can come & go as you please.

Yes they were real turkey legs. They were awsome.
