Massachusetts Renaissance Faire in Cummington // FRIDAY & SATURDAY

I’ve never actually been to a Renaissance Faire before, and this one seems like a great one to check out. There will be live jousting, fire breathers, and, I assume based on all images I’ve ever seen of Renaissance Faires, enormous drumsticks to eat. $10 – $20. Cummington Fairgrounds, 97 Fairgrounds Road, Cummington. 717-798-2834 or Takes place both this weekend and on August 3-4. — Dave Eisenstadter
