Good Day all!

My husband and I are planning to attend MNRF their opening 2017 weekend!

We're looking for some advice since this will be out first time visiting the faire and Minnesota. I figured you all would be the best resources ;)

We are looking at staying at Oak Ridge Hotel & Conference Center - advertise on the faire's site. My husband called the hotel and they said taxis and Uber services are not super reliable in this area.
        - What's our best way of getting to the faire site without having to rent a car?
        - Is there a better hotel closer to the faire site that might offer something like a shuttle service that is reliable?

Also - what are some must sees that we shouldn't pass up? We're pretty sure all the acts will be new to us.

Any kind of guidance would be much appreciated! And I'm hoping meet some of you as well if the chance arises :)

Thanks -
 Toua

I think Mystic Lake hotel offers a shuttle to/from faire. 

Also at faire check into the Friend of Faire area (it costs like 5 or 10 for the day, but a good way to meet a lot of folks.

I think the feast is a lot of fun.

Check the website for the entertainment and ask any questions.  (I would give recommendations but don't want to forget a good one and get yelled at :)

It's always best to catch Gauwyn when he's sober.

Check out the insult comedy of Vilification Tennis if you don't mind getting offended, but show up early to get a decent seat.

Look for our new sword swallower Kazimir the Hungry. He received Best New Act award last season.

Toua Taru:
Gauwyn - Thanks for the info about the Friends of Faire. I've heard the term here on the forums quite a bit, but I'm unfamiliar with it since I don't think we have that at my home faire in Florida.

Merlin - How wise!  ;D

Groomporter - Thanks for info on these acts! We'll definitely check them out. Hopefully we'll be able to see just about everything over both days we'll be there
