    Huzzah ! ! !

    I have been either working or attending the Carolina Renaissance Faire outside of Charlotte, NC for the last 7 years. I have also gone to the one in Raleigh once. (I wasn't impressed with that one.) Its like stepping back in time. People are nicer there. The dress code is better...

    Medieval Fairs N Me

    My first was Geneva, many eons ago, and Geneva remains my favorite. I have enjoyed several clear across the US, and frequently attend; even occasionally work a booth, Sarsaparilla of course. I always attend in costume and love to work off the actors. Living in Vegas though is not...

    I have always wanted to go and dress up for a Renaissance Faire!  I think it would be an awesome experience!  Is there a website that lists all the locations around the US?

    The Best!

    I wasn't really into Renaissance Festivals until I moved to Texas. Texas Ren Faire rocks! It is the best. The biggest in the United States. You really haven't been to a renfair until you've to this one. It's situated between Houston and Austin, in the small town of Plantersville...

    Elephant?

    I went to one in Colorado awhile back.  I got to ride the elephant.  I was just a kid, and I went on alone, it was soo scary!!!  But the shops at Renaissance Fairs are fun, and the roasted nuts are delicious!!!  (I don't usually eat nuts)  =]

    Feels Like Home

    The first Ren Faire I remember going to was when I was 17, with a group of friends and my first boyfriend. Being a fantasy fiction reader, I was in heaven. My mom later told me that she'd taken me to one as a baby. In my 20's I started going every year, bought a costume and...

    A Fun Piece of History Without the Plague!

    I have a great time at Renaissance Faires. Turkey legs, cauldrons brimming with garlic mushrooms, the music, the players, costumes, jousting, storytelling, and singing executioners. Let's go!

    A Tradition

    I attended my first Ren-Fest at 16, and I went every year after that for years. Lately time and work hours have gotten in the way of me going, but I plan to reinstate the tradition next year! It's wonderful- like stepping back in time. I love the costumes, the music, the food...

    Nice Cleavage

    Any guy who has ever been at a renaissance Fair knows that the best parts are the colorful ladies in costume with great boobs and cleavage. And these women can get a bit raunchy too. Some of the acts are bawdy. They really are not a good place for kids at times, because of all...
