Okay. So we had our first community Renaissance Faire at the library last year and it was held inside.
The other day I was walking by the creek that runs along the property. The creek bends and goes up the side of the library and in that bend there are several trees that form a circle. I was looking around at this patch of land thinking how beautiful it would be in the springtime when the grass is greening up and the flowers are blooming and the trees are leafing out. My father told me "If you truly love this, if putting on this faire is your passion, then nurture and make it grow, move it outdoors and get the whole community involved". So that is what I'm doing. This patch of land is grassy, with many trees and the creek. It would be lovely for the event. Were having it the first weekend in April.

Here are some events we have planned so far:

-Masquerade mask making
-Fairy crown making
-Face Painting
-Make-a-wish inside the "faery ring".
-Maypole dancing
-Contest
-Shakespeare skits(?)
-Renaissance Jewelry Making(?)
-Music - Harp Player(?)
-Etc.

So what do you guys think so far? Ideas and suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks,

How big are you thinking? That's the major question. From there, we can really delve into helping you further.

The main thing is to consider your working budget versus your actual budget (i.e. the money that you actually have to work with). Try to keep them as balanced as possible (hard, I know).  :)

I don't want it to have a permanent site and be big just yet. That is for later when I'm older and have a better paying job. It is taking place on a acre and a half of land. It is just a community thing for now. That's the size.

  • I know where the rum has gone.
What community?  (ie: where is it?)
