    As per the latest on the NRF Book of Faces-The dispute has been settled.
   The show will go on (albeit under new management) at the same location -Bellevue Pumpkin Ranch-as it has in the past. 
   Vendor and entertainment apps being accepted.
   See you there!

   May 2-3 and 9-10 2014.  11am -6pm  daily

Tickets:

 $12 Adults

 $7 Children 3-12 years.  Under 3 years free.

 Advance tickets can also be purchased at FairyTail Costumes in the Crossroads Mall at 72nd & Dodge .

http://bellevueberryfarm.com/renaissance-festival


 Weekend 1, the all-female jousting troupe,
KNIGHTS OF THE ROSE from Delaware Ohio!

Weekend 2, the heavy battle jousting troupe,
NEW RIDERS OF THE GOLDEN AGE from Sarasota Florida!

Both Weekends, live stage performances, hands-on activities, artisan markets, historical fun, and feasting fit for a king!

Our royal court will feature Queen Elizabeth and Dudley graciously visiting from the Sioux land Renaissance festival (Jue 6-7) in Sioux Falls, SD.    They may be a permanent addition.   

 Note:  For those interested in these things- The Sioux land faire is set in the middle years of QEI's reign; and I expect the Nebraska Faire will follow suit.  The setting is a celebration of the Queens's visit to the towne, during her progress.
   If you have not yet met this court at Sioux land; it is worth the trip to make their acquaintance.

  Hopefully you can make the second weekend, even for just a day.  It would be great to see you again!

   David is leaning toward doing the pay-as-we-go this year, rather than volunteer on-cast.
   The walking around all day is hard on his arthritis; and sometimes you just don't want to do 7 hours at a stretch, especially if the weather is hot or rainy.  We will most probably be there on Saturday each weekend. 

   I have made a new two person banner for the new royals, since the one I made last year was given to the Westside Reenactors; and is their property. 
   I am considering loaning this banner rather than donating it.  Canvas duck fabric is getting expensive!   If I have it,  I can keep up with repairs, and make sure it doesn't get wet or crumpled up in a box somewhere.   It needs to be rolled up on a fabric tube and not folded.

    The opening weekend was a resounding success!

    Big crowds both days, and ticket sales were steady, even during off peak times. It's getting better every year.

    This is the inaugural faire under new management.

  There were some new acts:  The Ladies of the Rose (all female tournament Jousters) were a nice change from the all male theatrical acts for the first weekend.     
  We return to the regular theatrical jousters (though not Joust Evolution) this coming weekend with Riders of the Golden Age.
  Our Royals this year are the court usually seen at Siouxland Renaissance Festival.   These excellent actors recently moved down to Lincoln, from Sioux Falls, where they will continue to play the Queen and Dudley.   Hopefully they will be joining the faire permanently, since it does not interfere with the Siouxland faire at the end of the month.
  We had such a fun time playing with them; they were everywhere, pulling pranks, doing skits and interacting with the considerable crowd. 
  They ended the day on Sunday with a rapier fight between the Duc d'Anjou and (I think) Dudley, after a weekend of exchanging pointed, and hilarious, insults.  I was elsewhere at the time and did not get to see this;  but the crowd was excited and talking about it all the way back to the gate.
   We will definitely need more room for the faire in the future; and the Berry ranch has room for it to grow much larger.  This year the Ranch surprised us with a new wooden bridge (which needs a Troll),  new paint and decorations on the List, banners and new, hand painted signs everywhere.
  New wooden decks and seating for the pub crowd and show audience overlooking the Pirate shipwreck stage;  a few new wooden playhouse sized gingerbread Fairy houses in the children's realm near the Dragon stage.  Landscaping is coming along nicely.

It sounds wonderful, thank-you for the review!  I'll be there Saturday or Sunday (probably Saturday).  Look forward to it!

   We won't be on cast the second weekend, but we will be there on Saturday, at least. 
   David and I are breaking in our Celtic garb for Siouxland.
   David has a new kilt and I have an Earasaid, we need to check out the garments for comfort and wear-ability in all weather.
   I also need to break in my new Medieval Moccasins; I'll know after a few hours whether I will need inserts! I haven't had much luck with other ghillies.

  Keep an eye on the weather- May weather is psycho in Nebraska.    See you there!
