Rennfest Shenanigans

It's that time of year again, time for creative anachronisms, jousting, and everything you can imagine on a stick! We've done this event in years past, and the tradition continues.

At-door tickets cost $22, but for those of us who go more than once in a season, multi-day passes are available. For more information, including schedules, check out

We can all meet around 12:00 at the fountain just inside the entrance (the first thing you come to inside the main gate), and for anyone arriving before or after, I can be reached at [masked].

    Photos from Renn Fest have been posted to the Photos page! I didn't realize that regular group members don't have the permissions to create a new photo album, so thanks goes to Danielle for creating the Renn Fest photo album to get the ball rolling. I also didn't realize that Meetup's photo album saves the full-sized image (unlike Facebook) so there's no need to contact/e-mail me in order to get the full-sized originals. Enjoy!

    I'll still have the one extra ticket. If anyone needs it, give me a call at [masked] tomorrow so we can arrange to meet up (since the fountains are inside the gates and you'll obviously need the ticket before going in). I'll probably get to the fairgrounds around 10-11 tomorrow.

      Looks like the group is starting to dwindle. Frack it, I'll still be there with my son and some of our friends no matter what.

    Sorry, gotta drop out. Forgot mom's birthday is Oct 1st so it's either axe this or axe the bbq. Since it's at my house axing the bbq is a bit out of the question. Though I would still like to go to the renn fest one more time before its over.

    The Realtors that help me purchase my house last year is offering me two free tickets. Since I'm going alone I'll have one extra ticket. Any takers?

      I would take it if I know I don't already get a sweet discount :-P

      If I can make it, I could certainly take a ticket off your hands. However, if someone else is definitely going a needs a ticket, they should have first dibs.

    Jim and I might be able to make it. I will check in as the date gets closer.

    If anyone is doing the jousting weekend in Oct let me know! He doesn't know it yet, but that's what the hubby is getting me for my birthday. :D

    It's my son's birthday weekend... so I'll tag along here and there, or at his whims...

    Plus, if anyone is military like me, there's a discount ticket by showing ID.

    I actually already have plans to go to the fair with some friends for this day. So I won't be able to be attached to anyone's hip, but there is no reason we can't hang out for certain shows, or meet for a flagon or two :3. P.S. The Wheel of Death, must see show. Literally heart stopping, I had to sit down when I was done watching.
