Looks like someone is trying to start a one-week end show in May.

They say they have an agreement for renting land, but don't specify where and no website yet as far as I've seen.

As someone who doesn't have Facebook and has never had Facebook this festival is not for me. Can find hardly any info as they seem to use Facebook as there only website.  I will sit out this festival until I can actually read about it without having to create a Facebook account to log in and see.

Yeah, starting out on a shoestring budget is one thing, but a pubic website in a necessity these days.

I had other commitments, I've heard mixed reviews about it. Sounds like it was pretty tiny.

Unfortunately second day of the (renamed) Lakes Area Royale Faire was cancelled this morning due to rain making the site unsafe.

They've announced that they are taking this year off.

To all of our loyal Patrons and Participants,
Quote
It is with great regret that we announce that our LARF 2020 event will not take place this year. In an effort to bring you the best Faire possible, we are taking this year to restructure and reorganize how we bring you a premier event.

It is with great hope and excitement that we tell you that we DO plan to have an outstanding and well-planned event for all in 2021. Watch our web page for official updates as we have great things in mind!

Sincerely,

LARF Board of Directors

But I got an Email from one of the original people who resigned from LARF and says she's trying to do an event this year anyway...

Even though the Lakes Area Renfest is far away from me , I still hate to see one suspend a season or take a hiatus. I'm sure it's a disappointment to those who count on and plan to go to that renfest.
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are---
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Sounds like there's been a falling out between the board and the woman who got the ball rolling. It's been pretty small so far.

Sword in the Stone Renaissance Festival is being organized by the people who took over from the woman who started the Lakes Area Ren fest. They say they want to do it in October.

Lakes Area Ren fest is now Fantasy of the Lakes Festival Was May, postponed to also be October...

Seems like a hot mess.
