This a fun event for photographers. The web site is http://bigskyrf.com. There are lots of people dressed in period costumes. Jousting, sword fights, stocks (be careful, offend the Queen and you'll be locked up!), archey, vendors , etc. I will see if I can get a schedule of events in advance. I do know that Friday evening there will be an actual wedding ceremony. A pirate themed wedding that is. So if any of you have always wanted to shoot a wedding nows you chance!
If you want to make a weekend out of it, there is a forest service campground at Bass creek. The campgroud is about three miles from the Faire. Other interesting photo ops are the Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge, Historic St. Mary's Mission, Kootenai Creek Canyon, Historic Fort Owen, and the Bass Creek Overlook
My wife has agreed to host a brats and burgers BBQ for us all on Saturday evening. Probably be in the 6:00 to 7:00 range at my house. I only live about 1.5 miles from the Faire. I will see if I can line up a replica of a 50's Conoco filling station for some dusk/dark photos. It doesn't get dark for quite a while so that may go pretty late.
