Open Weekends November 3, 1012 - December 9, 2012

Renaissance Festivals are highly entertaining, and offer many unique educational opportunities. We celebrate the romantic notations of history, we love the arts and science of a bygone era. We give everyone the opportunity to step out of reality for a day, and enjoy the good and fun things of the past.

In the world we create everything is virtually perfect, we love our Kings and Queens for they are kind, loving, generous, and virtually perfect in every way. In reality monarchs were human, At times greedy and cruel. There was little you could do about a bad monarch.Typically you were stuck with them until they died.

While we love history and the romantic things of our past, we are in fact living in the 21st century. As citizens of the United States we have the ability, freedom, and the right, to peacefully choose our leaders. Voting influences and is the most peaceful way. The margin of victory directly impacts the winners ability to achieve their goals.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
