Always interested in checking out a fledgling fair.  It was getting good before it closed.

So is this the old fair in a new location or the new fair in the old location?

Looking at the map, I think it is a new fair at the old location.

it is a new faire at the old location, The original faire moved to Glennwood City area, trying to get going there.

OK, I'm a little confused by the wording here... Please bear with me.
I was under the impression that the Faire operating at the Chippewa Falls location is under different ownership and is, in essence a "new" faire.  How can a new faire re-open their gates? 
The original owners of the faire at this location are opening their faire in Glenwood but still calling it by the same name as before and saying it's their 4 (or is it 5th?) season.

Alright, I'm totally confused.

Good day,
I will try to shed light on the confusion surrounding the Old Faire/New Faire situation for you.  Approximately eighteen previous Faire shareholders repurchased the Faire Grounds after the foreclosure.  Our original hopes, dreams, and love for this Faire and the property it is located on encouraged us to attempt to save it and bring it back bigger and better than before.  We formed a corporation named Wisconsin Festival Grounds Inc.  We have been working diligently for over a year to bring The Renaissance Faire back.  It has returned under a new name/old location, Chippewa Valley Renaissance Faire.  There is  renewed excitement, new management, and lots of changes in store for the opening.  There are also other events in the planning for the utilization of the property.  We hope to see you there!

As for the Old Faire in the new location...I am sorry to say that I really do not know what is transpiring there. All I know is that a few of the old shareholders moved on to a new location and are planning on restarting the Wisconsin Renaissance Faire in that location sometime in the future. 

Well wishes for both Faires!!

Suzanne

Thank you for the clarification, Suzanne.    I know I was not alone in my disappointment when the Chippewa Falls location closed-it had so much potential!   

I am thrilled to see that it will be open once again and am excited for the new things yet to come.

As for the Glenwood location...Huzzah to more faires!  I very much look forward to opening day!
