If eating a giant turkey leg and time-tripping to the 15th Century is your idea of a good time, then the Sterling Renaissance Festival is where it's at.

The Sterling Renaissance Festival has been a part of summer fun in New York State for 38 years. If you haven't been before, consider taking a road trip this month. The event is about a 3.5 hour drive from Utica, but it's well worth it.

What exactly is a Renaissance Festival? Well according to Renfair.Com:

A Renaissance Faire is a recreation of a Renaissance or Medieval village. It is filled with costumed actors, crafts and games to give patrons the illusion that they have stepped back in time. The New York Renaissance Faire features more than 125 performances on 20 stages, and over 100 craftspeople, all set within 65 acres of beautiful forest.
