If you have never experienced the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire it really is something you should experience at least once in your lifetime. The locals in Pennsylvania refer to it as the PA Ren Faire. The faire runs from August 13th through October 30th, 2011 from 11:00 am thru 8:00 pm. The events are open rain or shine.
The faire is located in Mt. Hope Estate in Northern Lancaster County and if you want to save a few dollars before you go, head on over to the site and print out some discount tickets for the PA Ren Faire and local area activities. The food, rides and games are not included in your ticket price so you will need to pay for those separately once you arrive if you want to participate in those.
Cameras are permitted as long as you only take photographs for personal use (hence why there is none in this blog post). Cell Phones are permitted but only if you mute them or put them on vibrate as they don't want cell phone calls disturbing other people or interupting performances. Parking can be a real "bear" so I advise you arriving early and try to leave before the crowds head out for the evening.
