The most economical way of feeding yourself at Pennsic is to do your own shopping and cook for yourself. There aren't any grills or firepits provided in the camping areas, so you'll need to bring a camp stove or grill along with whatever other equipment you may need.

    There are two food courts (one near the Troll Booth, and another in/near the barn), where vendors offer a wide selection for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and other refreshments.

    The expanded camp store, located in the barn, sells drinks, prepared lunch items, and snacks; milk, eggs, bread & other baked goods; some frozen meats, fresh fruits & vegetables; dry goods and canned goods. If they don't carry what you need, there are supermarkets in Butler, New Castle, and Slippery Rock, within 20 to 30 minutes travel time.

    If you don't have the equipment to put together a camp kitchen, or if you just don't want to bother, there are other options:

  • Many groups organize meal plans. These might cover 3 meals a day, or just dinners. Ask your friends or the people you'll be camping with if they know a group meal plan you can join.
  • You can buy all your meals at the food court, but this can cost more, and sometimes the lines can be long.

    Even if you decide to join a meal plan or eat at the food court, it is a good idea to bring a small cooler for yourself to keep beverages or small snacks.
