How it’s New York: The Ren Faire is just a couple of hours from NYC.
How it’s Irish: The Ren Faire has an auld English and to some extent Irish flavor at all times. This weekend it heats that up with Celtic weekend.
This weekend is the final weekend of the Faire!
Never been? It’s kind of like medieval cosplay. You can rent a costume if you don’t own one, and it’s also OK not to wear one at all. I geta kick out of seeing wenches and pirates lined up at the ATM, a medieval princess carrying a pink backpack.
This weekend is the Faire’s final weekend! Here’s what they write:
Music and Dance
Sing and dance along to Celtic tunes throughout the Shire!
