Wizards Invade the CT Midsummer Fantasy Ren Faire! (Joint event with HP-CT)
The Midsummer Fantasy Faire is a fantasy (non-historical) themed faire in Ansonia CT. It is A TON of fun, and has performers not seen in the Tuxedo Faire and their are less Muggles than other faires. The Ansonia Faire is 1.5 hours from NYC, only 30 minutes further away than the Tuxedo, NY Faire. So lets show Ansonia some Hogwarts love! HP Cosplay, Ren Cosplay, etc is not required but definitely encouraged! Start and end times are the formal times of the Faire. But I usually recommend arriving at Faires at least 30 minutes before gate opening. We will also be working with HP-CT to order tickets at group rate. So don't buy tickets on your own unless we update you otherwise =) Please note that we will not have transportation available for this event. But please use the discussion section below to organize car shares or train shares! For more information about the Faire, visit its homepage: http://www.mfrenfaire.com/ IMPORTANT NOTE: This event is RAIN OR SHINE

Sponsor

Our main sponsor is Jordan Dené (http://www.jordandene.com/) - Maker of kitchen armor, outfitter of crayon soldiers.

Jordan Dené is a matchmaker of sorts, first introducing and later marrying practicality and pop culture. Pennsylvania-bred and Brooklyn-based, Jordan specializes in creating aprons with geek-chic graphic designs and creative curios like the best-selling crayon bandolier (as seen in Real Simple’s holiday gift guide).

Although initially sewing was solely supposed to be a creative outlet, thanks in part to Etsy’s enthusiastic crafting community, Jordan’s hobby quickly turned into a wonderfully hectic small business.

Jordan’s products are crafted with individual care and are fashionable, functional and 100 percent customizable. With handcrafted items like the ever-popular TARDIS aprons, golden snitch necklaces and canvas bags embroidered with whichever Hogwarts House suits your fancy, Jordan’s shop has everything to fit your niche needs.
