The Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire well located in (kinda) east-central PA, about 30 east of Harrisburg at exit 266 off the PA Turnpike, or about 20 miles north of Lancaster (and US30) on PA72

Also located on the site is the New Hope Winery.

It's rather hilly, so make sure you have good walking shoes on, or a good charge on your wheelchair, as I've seen many people having theirs pushed to get out.  It's still rather easy to walk around, as much of the walkways are paved.  The site covers about 35 acres, with plenty of parking.

Being that the Faire runs as late in the year as it does, and it is open till 8pm, the atmosphere takes on a completely different look once the sun goes down, especially after the time change and a chill is in the air.

The last day is an especially good day to go, and people are still coming in at 6pm.  They have a great auction at the pirate ship on the last day too, I picked up a nice Braveheart sword for 50 bucks!  The above shot is from that auction.
