We have some really awesome shows this year.  It has been a good year of growth for the faire.  I have seen some familiar faces over the past two weekends and hope to see a few more next weekend.  We have several vendors and Entertainment to keep you buisy through out the day.  We also have an awesome food vendor that makes great Turkey legs and scotch eggs.  Come on out and see us for a day.

Just want to say we went to your Faire this year and enjoyed it. I was unable to stay for the whole thing, (Recovering from cancer treatment and was still getting my strength back) but I enjoyed what I was able to see. While my home faire is Sterling we plan on making this Faire part of our yearly plans. My daughter lives in Jamestown and I have already talked to her about going with us next year. She has never been to one and she is excited. I look forward to watching your faire grow over the years. Thanks for an entertaining day, it took my mind off from my recovery and I would dare say even helped.

So glad you had a good time and are planning to come again and bring your family with you.  Many of the same acts will be returning next year and we are hoping to have a few new ones as well as more vendors.  We look forward to your return.  The faire will once again be the first 3 weekends in June.

Perhaps I can arrange a Sterling invasion. By that time we should all be well into the later stages of Ren withdraws. Your faire will be a lifeline.

Thought it was time to give this thread a little bump. After all it is almost one month to opening. Have made plans to show up opening weekend with my wife, my daughter and her fiancee. The wife and myself are both EMT's and my daughter's fiancee is a firefighter so that means my daughter will be the most expensive one. (LOL) Looking forward to a good time.
PS Your flyer pdf link isn't working.
PSS can we get a list of performers. Loved the ones you had last year and hope they all return.

Enjoyed the Plunder Dogs and we are happy to see Live from the Pirate Isles back. Have some good pics of them. No Shattered Shakespeare? lol  Only going to make the first day, but it looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. I give the entire production cast high marks for what you have done with this faire. As I have said in other posts I look forward to seeing you grow over the years. If I didn't live so far I would love to be a part. For now I will support you by coming and spending my money. And my daughters Money. And my wife's money. And the cat's.

lol, don't tell the cat.  We may have Shattered Shakespeare they guys who do it have not been able to get together much over the winter months so they were not sure they would be ready to do it for us.  There will be an opening gate show this year and an actual story line.  Joan of Arc is the theme, though it is very loosely done and intended to be humorous.  Faire opens at 11 am and closes at 6 pm.  We will also have an organised Pub sing.  Look forward to seeing you.

So I Xantrawler, Queen's Forrester of our fair Queen Elizabeth - God save the Queen!- shall escort my lady to your wonderful festival. We plan on leaving here around 8 of the morning. We should be in Town of James to retrieve my lovely daughter and her male friend around 10 of the morning. That should leave plenty of time to get to your wonderful land.

We have recently had the privilege to book Axel the Sot for our second and third weekend.

No fair Rahne. We only planed for opening weekend. Now see what you have done, we need to come up with another excuse not to work on the roof and go to faire instead. Hmmmmm wonder if the wife would mind a big umbrella over the dinning room table.

Lol, I'm sure it will be fine, life should never interfere with faire after all.  We tried to book all three weekends, but we are too close to The dates for TN where he is now and the turn around was too quick.  Besides we would love to see you for two weekends.  ;)

We would love to come for all three actually, but alas I had to put off doing the roof last year (That nasty minor inconvenience of recovering from cancer and all. Wildrose being one of the big part of my recovery as it was one of my goals) So we will do opening weekend. If lucky maybe make closing weekend. Of course if it looks like it will rain we may show up the second weekend. After all a rainy day at Faire beats a hot day on the roof. By the way checked the weather for next weekend and it is looking good.
