Go back in time at a Renaissance Festival
Jousting, Medieval jargon, corsets and kilts, beer steins filled to the brim, and giant turkey legs are just a few of the attractions at the Sterling Renaissance Festival, which takes place July 1 -- August 13. For over 40 years, the tiny town of Sterling, NY has transformed into 1585 Warwick, England for about two weeks of the summer. Attendees get the opportunity to have tea with “Queen Elizabeth I,” attend a royal feast, or go on a pub crawl. Elizabethan street performers, dueling knights, and a large artisan market also await.
