I started going to Renaissance Faires in 1987. I wasn’t long before I was buying garb pieces and a season pass. Since that time, I’ve had a couple of personas that have run through several years. The last went more than 10, with a continuing story line. I have also been a patron, participant, and boothie.
New York Renaissance Faire (NYRF, Tux) was my first faire and is still my home faire, I haven’t missed a season since 1987. I’ve mostly been a patron here, but was also a member of the Friends of Faire for the 9 years it existed.
Connecticut Renaissance Faire has 2 shows, the Robin Hood Springtime Festival in May and the King Henry Harvest Festival in October. At the spring faire, I can be found at Karmic Henna or out on Rogue Guild business. For the fall faire, I’ll either be at The Hostel or the Pickle Barrel.
