We're thinking of going to the RenFest tomorrow, but don't know if the budget can handle the assault. I know the entrance fee - but how much do you typically spend there? If we wanted to do food, games, rides, and maybe a souvenir... will I need to take out a loan?

Well I spent $41 including entrance fee but that was only for myself (2 beers at $5.00 each, 1 ear of corn at $3.00, $5.00 camel ride, $3.00 paintball game).

Souvenirs, it depends on what you want. They have from $10.00 necklaces to $175 corsets (which the lady didn't tell me was that much until she booted me into it and I liked it - but didn't buy it...I can buy a push up bra for cheaper).

Food, I think the most expensive thing was that ugly turkey leg at $7.00.

Rides mostly were $5.00 to $6.00 (camel ride, bungee jump, a couple of house mazes to go through). Since I don't have kids my day was cheaper. My friend had her two kids there and she probably spent $100 total on just rides they wanted to do, food and a couple of small souvenirs.

I'd say plan on at least $30.00 per person extra after the entrance fee just to be on the safe side.

Have fun!

I spent $100 between my wife, son and me. $20 per adult, kids under 5 (or 10?) are free, so that's $40. Spent about $30 in food, and the rest in a wooden sword, throwing tomatoes at some guy and $2 for my son to ride the giant horse.
