    Wonderful to read an article about faire that is accurate and kind-spirited.

    As both a long-time patron and a current participant, I heartily endorse your recommendations. I would add the following:

    – put on sunscreen early and often, and wear some sort of hat.
    – avoid bringing any possessions you can’t afford to lose.
    – stop for a while by the side of a road and watch the amazing faire world go by.
    – talk to the participants, especially the street characters! They love to interact with you!

    That was fantastic! I especially loved the tip about taking some photos to remind you where your car is parked!

    Great list! This is perfect, since my bf and I are thinking of attending our first Faire this summer. We are excited since they will have a real jousting tournament!
