Maine?
« on: June 16, 2011, 06:56:21 AM »
Posting this here because I am moving to Maine this year. And unfortunately I am moving right at the beginning of my faire season. So I may make one day of Faire this year but it isnt looking good for me. Does anyone know if there are any events around Portland Maine? I have seen the adds for the pirate festivals...And gone to a few and been left disappointed. Is there anything else up that far?

There used to be the Maine renfaire but no longer around
and there was a terrific Pirate Fest in Rockport but no longer - but the pirates are still around:

we have New England-based board, and if there is anything it's generally on the calendar
http://www.nerennies.net/

and another band of pirates to follow
http://www.bawdybuccaneers.com/Ports.htm

Not sure if any of these events are near Portland...hope some of this helps

King Richards Faire in Massachusetts is about the closest you're going to find.

There was actually a newer Ren Faire about 4 years ago but the owner fell under health issues and so it just died away. For some reason Maine has this history of great events that last a very short time.
