My family and I are attending the festival for the first time this year.  We are going tomorrow...I know, last minute question, but I have 2 small boys and was wondering if they allowed snacks and bottled water into the festival.  We are on a tight budget, so if we can bring in a baggie of goldfish and a bottle of water for the kids to snack on, we'll be able to save a bundle.  Also, can we bring a backpack in with kid supplies?  I looked for this info on their website, but couldn't find a Frequently Asked Questions section.

Thanks for any info anyone can provide.



Hi fairydancer.......
Yes you can bring in water or snacks into the faire. I have seen famlies with little wagons with kiddie supplies tucked away. Be prepared to have the front gate check, but there never seems to be a problem.
Have a great faire day!

Hi fairydancer,
   You should have no problem bringing in snacks  and water  for your sons.  I use to bring snacks  for my son when he was a toddler.   They may want to check your backpack just to see what you have in it.

   I'm going to be there tomorrow.   Look for a tall dark auburn haired person wearing a velvet captain's hat, black captain's jacket, blouse, red vest, and black skirt,   walking  around  with a noble  man  and  a  little pirate. I also have my ren fest pin on.  Do say hello if  you spot me !     Have fun   and welcome  to Sterling !
