Frequently Asked Questions

What You Need & Want To Know

We all have questions. If there's anything we haven't cleared up for you yet please contact us at: and will do our best to let you know what you need to know!

Where can I get tickets?

Tickets and Camping Passes are available for purchase on this website. Tickets, both Day and Weekend Passes are also available at Imagicka, our Sponsor, on Court Street in Binghamton, NY and always at the gate at the festival. You can, but do not need to pre-purchase tickets. Camping Passes are limited and are only available online at this website. 

How do I make payment for...?

You can pay by Paypal, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Cash App or a major credit card. If you prefer to send a check/money order, please contact us at  

What happens if it rains (or is really, really hot)? 

 The NY Faerie Festival happens no matter what the weather. Magic and fun is to be had every day and tough weather may alter that fun - but can also enhance your experience -  especially if you have planned your stay with the forecast in mind. (Check weather for zip code 13787)

The site is fairly handicapped accessible, although there is no paved ground, the site is nearly all flat with minor dips and rises. People in motorized carts or rugged wheelchairs have visited before and had few problems, depending on weather conditions. Please exercise caution if you are not driving a cart.


There is a reserved parking area near the gate for handicap vehicles, although there is a small hill to decend to enter the festival. 

Are dogs allowed?

Yes, pets are welcomed as long as they are kept under control and cleaned up after. Dogs in the campground need to be preregistered.

What is your policy on weapons?

Swords and the like can be part of a costume. Be careful, be safe, and don't hurt anybody.

When is a certain band playing?

The performance schedule will be available through the Schedule/Directions page after the schedule is finalized (probably a couple of weeks before the festival).

How can I volunteer?

Volunteers are the backbone of our community. The New York Faerie Festival has a vibrant and robust volunteer community that you are welcome to apply for. Just follow the link below and you will be directed to an application page. We look forward to seeing you labor in the woods in forests of the New York Faerie Festival on behalf of the faeries!  Volunteer/Crew Application 

Do I need to have cash at the Festival?

Having some cash on hand is a very good idea. There will be a cash machine at the entrance to the Festival and most of our vendors are prepared and glad to accept other forms of payment (debit and credit cards and perhaps other forms of payment as well). However, this is a festival in a rural area- in woods and fields and all those convenient methods rely on the internet. Although we work hard to provide internet coverage throughout the festival, things can go wrong, so it cannot be relied upon 100%. Having some cash to make sure you can get food, a drink, or that one most amazing item is a very good idea.
