Maryland Renaissance Festival 2021 - We're Back
« on: October 04, 2021, 12:35:54 PM »
Yes,  I know, it's been a while. These boards survive, though. I am grateful.

To any old friends, I have been very, very busy, taking over the "adminning", along with a friend, of the Friends of the Maryland Renaissance Festival a few years ago. That orginizaion is now reborn, and healthier than it has been since long before the plague hit us.

MDRF itself is back now, already heading into our 7th week of the 2021 season. We are currently running at 80% capacity. Great, sellout crowds. Lots of old and new friends roaming about the grounds. Hope to see some of you out there over the next 3 weeks.

And further, don't worry, the squirrels are still out there...watching and listening and helping us when we need it.
Cheers! ~ Am

Yes, MDRF is alive and well. They've actually sold out two weekends in a row.
They are currently operating at 80% ticket capacity
All ticket sales this year are online only.
There are no more multi-day tickets available.
A quick check shows that there are still single day tickets available for the remaining six days of the festival.
The link for ticket sales is below. Cheers! ~ Am

Good morning from Louisiana
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.

Hail! Just looking in here to see if there were any echoes.
Spent many an interesting day long ago in your neck o'the woods at that great oasis known as "Ft. Polk."
The rest of Louisiana, I pretty much love!

Possibly drizzly weekend coming up in Maryland.
Still single-day tickets available for all 6 remaining festival days.
Tickets are available only online this year, at this website: https://rennfest.com/tickets/
No walkup tickets being sold. If you drive out there without one, you won't be getting in.
Cheers from MD!

Remember that Navy has a home football game this weekend. This will compound the problems associated with traffic in the Crownsville area on Saturday.  Plan your day accordingly. Cheers! ~ Amras

Greetings! We're still here. This site should become every faire goers shield wall!

A friendly reminder that MDRF ticket sales are online only now.
Last look at the site shows single-day tickets are still available for all 4 remaining festival days.
