Does anyone do anything different during the hot summer without Renfaires than they do during the cold winter without Renfaires?  I'm biding my time right now and making plans for October faires in the area.

The summer break in Oklahoma isn't as long as the seemingly unending weather break.  At least in March, one can sneak down to Texas for a good faire.  I've been to the Colorado Renfest in years past for a summer fix but it has been a while.

Fortunately in my area (Delaware, NJ, and PA) there are a few things to keep us going. The New Jersey RenFaire just completed a 3 weekend run. Tomorrow is the Fantasy Faire at Wheaton Arts in NJ. The Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire runs beginning of August through the end of October. A little more far afield is the Maryland Renfaire which goes from the end of August into October. Instead of hot and sweaty at home, I can be hot and sweaty at Faire.

mainly I come here and read posts and look through photos while the A/C is maxed out. It's hot , humid and sticky down here by the Gulf o M. No one is crazy enough to have a summer renfest down here. So short answer , hang out here . If you know of other sites plz inform us all.
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are---
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Here in the Midwest, our Faires start in May and run through the end of September.  Over the winter, my husband and I try to go somewhere south (where it's warmer) and try to plan it so we can hit a faire in the area.
