Anybody know when tickets ship?
« on: April 16, 2011, 09:18:29 PM »
Ordered a couple weekend passes a couple months ago. Does anybody know when they normally ship out the tickets? (First time for Great Lakes faire, I know the Ohio one posts when they will send tickets out, but can't find anything on Great Lakes). Hate waiting till the last minute... nothing back on email, I might try again.

Hi Sigundo!

I have been attending GLMF forever...and as much as it pains me to say...they are notoriously slow at sending out tickets. That being said - it's a wonderful Faire and I'm sure you won't be disappointed!  

I do happen to know there were a few folks who just this week received their tickets.  You may want to try to call them to let them know they are a "rush" if you need them by a certain date.  www.medievalfaire.com  (440) 474-4280 / 1-888-MEDIEVAL.

Not a good way to run a business. If they already cashed your check/ran your credit card, that's a REAL bad way to work!

That is unfortunately the case as it has been for several years now, and only seems to be getting worse.

Lady Catharine, I also purchased several season passes and tickets way back when in NOVEMBER (for their "Holiday" sale...mayhaps I should have asked which holiday of which year?) and have not yet received and was unable to give actual gifts for the holidays they were purchased. 

There have been many complaints about this bad business on the "unofficial forum" and we hear nothing but excuse upon excuse from "the office" and how we're all complainers and need to chill out and just wait, although nobody can tell us for how long we will need to wait.  Bad busines, indeed...  And, frankly, what about the general public who purchased tickets and are not on the forum...how are they being communicated to?  I suspect they are not, and suspect that there have been many calls to credit card companies about not receiving merchandise.  Not a particularly good way to build up a loyal following...

Well, that's at least hopeful that its not just me. Long as they get here before I leave to go to the faire, it's ok. I've heard lots of good things about the Great Lakes faire, especially about the shade (which is the only reason I would even think about going in July to any place outside). Bad enough the KY faire is in June, but its pretty shaded and the places that are not in the shade, they put cloth awnings up overhead which helps a lot.

I received my voucher for my season pass about a week or so ago. It took maybe 4 weeks tops from the time I ordered.

Hi Sigundo, glad you finally got your passes. The office may be unorganized when it comes to communication and distributing tickets, but the faire itself is wonderful. The trees cool the site down (being close to the lake also helps), so it's not unbearable on hot days. I keep reminding myself after the winter we've had, I won't whine about the humidity. LOL

Maybe those were your 2010 tickets, and the 2011 tickets are still on the way...

Haha... you don't know me yet. When I went to the Scarborough Faire, I think I let everybody know to take the normal temp for the time and add 8. I was still low by a few degrees.  It was 91 and 89 the 2 days I went, (the only days I could) and the very next weekend, in the 70's I believe. The Ohio Ren Festival the year before ended up with a hot spot almost centered on the faire during Labor Day weekend. (I still enjoyed the faires, but this year I"m hitting the ORF in Octoburr).

Great Lakes faire I don't have a choice really (no cool months) and reserved a "brownie point" spot for the wife to stay in while we're there. Another person from work here has been and said its nice in the shade even in July, so I will give it the old college try. Really sounds like a nice faire.

Still have the KY Highland Faire between now and the Great Lakes, and its mostly shaded (and the parts that are not shaded usually have that black cloth which shades pretty well).

Unfortunately, Sigundo, that was an unusually warm opening weekend. Two months prior to that, we were at Sherwood for opening, and Saturday is was 85...in MID-FEBRUARY for peat's (as opposed to Pete's) sake.

Thanks Merlin, now I have some more proof of the Sigundo Curse (my appearance = unusual warmth). Now it is much harder to link the "Japan earthquake made the earth shift its axis just enough to change the weather patterns to move the rainy weather onto my new days off" theory, as it would counter the "always HOTTER when I go to renaissance faires" theory, being my new days off are Saturday and Sunday, what will the earth do?

All I can hope for is that everybody else's luck is greater than my curse (or maybe faires will just be horrible on days I go, so I'll warn everybody beforehand).

By the way, I AM going to the KY Highland faire on Doctor Kaboom weekend, so bring an umbrella (for shade or rain) and you should be save. haha.  ::)

P.S. Not trying to belittle the catastrophy over there, that was another of a string of nasty events going on lately.

I ordered my season pass online today and requested that it be mailed to me.  How long do you think it will take to get to Canada?  Nothing came up indicating that there would be a problem but I am worried now if it took 4 weeks in the U.S......hope it gets here  :-\

Well, if the letter that came with my tickets was true, it was a problem with the ticket printers causing the delays, so hopefully if that is fixed, you shouldn't have to wait as long. Good luck to you.

Actually, the office isn't bad, when there are actually people in the office.
The problem is, no one is there during the off season.
Not until like May
Now that Beth and the others are in the office, you can actually call and get answers to questions.

Beth at the office at GLMF has been diligently reconstructing and recovering the lost ticket sales records. If you have any ticket issues, contact her  Email:  wheelingmom1@yahoo.com.   Please provide her the date you purchased the ticket, /pass and if you kept the email, the invoice number is helpful too.

Well, due to some complications with the wife's surgery, we can't go to the faire. I stuck the tickets on the buy and sell area of forums in case anybody is interested. Also opened up the room at Polly Harper Inn over the weekend of the 16th in case anybody wants to earn points with the better half, looked like a nice place, maybe next year.

I sure hope so. We are still planning to make the ORF in October, everything should be fine and dandy by then... and cooler too! Still that bed and breakfast looked nice, but I can get it for next year as well I suppose once I have the confirmed vacation time from work.
