Disappointed in the shows and booths. The Fort Myers Fair was better. The admission price (even with Groupon discount) was too expensive for what was presented. I would not go back.

For the few events and booths of interest, I think the entrance fee (even the 1/2-price one I paid) is too high. More seating in the shade would be helpful on a hot day. And $2 for a bottle of water? Amazing.

I've been to the Medieval Fair in Maryland and the people who were dressed as characters interacting with the crowd were very lively and animated, I have also been to the Medieval Fair here in Sarasota, but it was years ago and our family had the same experience and it was lots of fun. BUT, this year I went with my husban and we used our Groupon and also treated other people to the event and it was totoally lack luster-- the characters we did see, which were very few, clearly did not want to be there and dd not interact or even appear to have any interest in interacting with the public. We arrived a few miuntes after 12 noon and there was hardly any shows worth watching going on, no jousting, no anythnig, one guy on one stage and he was not all engaging or interesting and no actors interactin with the crowd as I siad earlier...What a let down! :( !

Not as good as when it was at the Ringling. A lot smaller at the fair grounds

Would go back at discounted price - it tends to be very repetitive year after year.

Last year was much better. For some reason, this year had a more "money money money" skeevie feel to it, so we didn't stay very long. We loved the fairy corner that was in the back by the trees, it was a perfect spot, instead of being in the center of the vendors and with face painters and people looking for your next dollar. I hope the "magic" of it is back next year.

It's always a fun day and the savings made it especially nice. Some new acts since last year which was very good (same old gets boring - you know all the jokes!).
