History

The New York Renaissance Faire was originally created 1977. In 1996, Barbara Hope and Donald Gaiti, Renaissance Entertainment Corp. acquired Creative Faires Ltd., the company who owned and operated the faire. The faire is the fifth to be owned by the corporation.

Attractions

Like many other faires, the faire has a different storyline that changes with each year. Some weekends are themed, such as one aimed towards pirates.

The faire is a training ground for stage and screen actors who use the opportunity to grow in their careers. The actors spend two months preparing for the faire. The faire is also known for its charity work in reading programs and blood donations.

Several weeks after the faire ends, the land is changed to be a Halloween-themed event called the Forest of Fear. It runs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night in October.
