--- Quote ---Mid-America Festivals has just two more seasons of the Renaissance Festival at the existing Shakopee site before it has to move to a new location, and Jordan is the preferred new location.

Last fall, Mid-America Festivals purchased 150 acres of land along County Road 59 (Delaware Avenue), north of Highway 169 in St. Lawrence Township near the Scott County Fairgrounds.

In case anyone is interested this is the statement in our 2018 booth contracts

"RELOCATION STATEMENT: AS OF THE DATE OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE MINNESOTA RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL WILL TAKE PLACE AT ITS CURRENT LOCATION THROUGH THE 2018 SEASON, AND POSSIBLY FOR ADDITIONAL SEASONS. AT SOME FUTURE POINT IN TIME, THE MINNESOTA RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL WILL RELOCATE TO A NEW LOCATION AND LICENSEE, PROVIDED LICENSEE HAS NOT BEEN IN BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT, WILL BE PROVIDED AN OPPORTUNITY TO RELOCATE TO OUR NEW SITE."

It seems to me the longer they are a lame duck at the current site no one is putting any work or resources into updating their buildings.  I love going but the smells are getting worse each year.  Seems time to rip the band aid off and just move to the new site.
