Renee, I'm with the Celts, we have a tent, and a fire, and two furry little radiators named Nixie and Gremlin.  Look for us in the flats below the castle.

Had a completely wonderful time today at Stronghold.  It was great to see unilady and friends, both human and furry.  And Dustin and Cheri, and Merry Measure and lots of our Bristol friends.

We didn't take a camera, so I hope Dustin will post his pictures (I know he took them cause he took one of the 4 of us -- unilady was out wandering with her pup when we went to her booth to take the picture).

For anyone in the Illinois/Iowa/Southern Wisconsin/Western Indiana area (and those from afar, too):  This is one of the most fun small faires in the area.  There are a lot of performers from Bristol, so you get top-notch entertainment, but due to the smaller venue, it is much more laid-back and relaxed.  You will also find a lot more interaction with the cast and musicians here, too.  It's almost like you were sitting in a friend's back yard and people started jamming.

But the quality of the shows and the merchants is first rate, even though the faire is small, that doesn't mean it's honkey tonkey.  It's definitely worth a trip.


Thanks, Dayna, for bumping up this thread.   If anyone shows up, you can't help but running into everyone else, so make sure to come up and introduce yourself!  ;D

Margrett, will you be there as a patron or a worker?  You, unilady (Dayna), and I should definitely try to meet.  I will be there on Saturday with "the girls," and then again on Sunday with my husband, and another couple.

It's not a big faire, so we should run into each other, but it will be nice to meet and spend a few minutes with each other.

I will be there as a patron. If my new gown is done by then, I'll wear that (terra cotta brocade). But it probably won't be done as I am also working on a steampunk outfit for Windycon so can't focus on just the new gown. I'll post what I'll be wearing before that weekend.

I'm there as a participant with the Celts, so I'll be down the hill on the right.  Look for the wee chihuahuas, or if it's terribly cold look for the people with the lumpy laps because we'll be using the chihuahuas as hand-warmers.   LOL
