Friends of Faire


Friends of Faire is a fully-owned REP organization. Membership is limited to 500 people per Faire season. Friends of Faire is a support organization dedicated to encouraging and supporting Faire patrons wanting to become more fully involved with the New York Renaissance Faire. 

Faire patrons, through their membership, are afforded many opportunities. The FOF Garden maybe used solely as a private sociable area within the Faire or for those wishing to become more closely involved: FOF offers many varied experiences and options.
FOF members desiring to be even more immersed in an REP Faire are afforded a myriad of volunteer activities. Workshops covering language, audience interaction, improv and costuming will be made available to all members.
