My brother works the Renaissance Faire circuit, in the American South and elsewhere. These faires are attended by large numbers of fundamentalist Christians and Neo-Pagans. The Christians sometimes have trouble with the booths that feature fortune telling, Magic etc., so certain faires put those magic and pagan-themed booths in a separate faire separated by a long path. And of course, the first thing that the children of Christian parents do is sneak away to the pagan side of the fair.
