Year-round Rennies, what is your "Rotation List" of faires?
« on: September 27, 2015, 06:46:16 PM »
Hi there! I'm going to be leaving for the first Rennie fair for my "travel around the country", and I was curious, what are the "big faires" that year long Rennies go to?

I see a lot on the list, but it is kind of confusing. I know the Gold Canyon, Arizona one is on my list, and I'll make the next Boulder Springs, Colorado one, and I'm going to the October one in Las Vegas, but I'm curious what your yer round "loop" is and if you're willing to share it, just to give me some insight on some of the larger, more consistent festivals?

Texas Ren Fest is the largest--opens in a couple of weeks. Too much for my taste.

Boulder Springs--do you mean Colorado Springs? There is a faire in Larkspur, between Colorado Springs and Denver. Lovely faire.

We live in central Arkansas. Our annual tour starts with Sherwood Forest Faire (east of Austin, TX) in February, Scarborough Ren Fest (Waxahachie, TX, south of Dallas) in April, Oklahoma Ren Faire (Muskogee, OK) in May, and usually a wildcard thrown in. These have included the previously mentioned Colorado Ren Fest, Kansas City Ren Fest (west of KC in Bonner Springs, KS), Carolina Ren Fest (north of Charlotte, NC), Bristol (nw of Chicago near Kenosha, WI).  All are permanent faires. Sherwood is the youngest--about to turn 7--, but you would hardly know it. It's one of our favourites.  OKRF is 20 years old, the rest are all over 30.

Those are the ones I've been to, but there are many more I'd like to visit.

We live in the Central Texas area so we've got three faires within a pretty short drive. 

At the beginning of the year, we've got Sherwood during the cool months of Feburary and March.  Next we've got Scarbrough in April and May.  In the fall, it's Texas in October and November.  We've made a few trips up to Colorado and went to the Colorado Faire at Larkspur while we were there.  No two are alike and there are things about each one that I really like.

My wife wants to make a trip up to the northeast and we'd like to visit the New York Faire at some point.  Other's on my list:  Louisiana, Oklahoma, Four Winds in northeast Tx, Kansas City, Tennessee, and maybe Bristol or Minnesota.  We get the Renaissance Magazine at the house, so with each new issue I see another faire that looks interesting.
