Northern California Renaissance Faire Discount Hotel Package
September to October is always an exciting time in Northern California. As the leaves turn and the weather gets nippier, people know that three of the most fun holidays are coming up. In NorCal, there’s another event to look forward to – the much celebrated Northern California Renaissance Faire!
This year, the fair runs weekends from September 13 through October 12. It’s an affair that caters to everybody, hence the huge crowds it draws. People come from all over to experience one of America’s best renaissance fairs. It’s important to plan ahead since the area will be very busy around this time. The following are some of the essentials you need to know:
Renaissance Faire Tickets
If you buy your tickets online, you get the advantage of skipping the long lines and going straight to the gate. General admission tickets cost $25 each. Kids under 12 get in for free. There is a weekend pass that is good for both Saturday and Sunday of the same weekend. It costs $35 and does not go with any other offer or promo. Sets of 15 or more people can do a group purchase and save $5 per ticket. There is also the Fairever Pass, which saves you 40% on the full season, allowing you an unlimited 10-day access. It’s worth $150 per person. When picking it up, you need to present a picture ID, which will also accompany every Fairever Pass for admittance stamp.
The NorCal Ren Faire is in Hollister, but the place will be fully occupied by those involved with the fair. You can stay in neighboring towns such as Gilroy, where the BEST WESTERN PLUS Forest Park Inn, your best lodging option for the fair, is located.
