ROAD TRIP!!
« on: March 19, 2009, 05:22:00 PM »
I'm playing a new faire on May 2nd.  It's The Medieval & Renaissance Faire at The Ohio State University in Downtown Columbus, Oh.
The web site is http://cmrf.org.ohio-state.edu/.  The faire is only one day but it's a good day trip from the Pittsburgh area.  This faire has been around for 35 years but since it is only one day, many do not know about it.  It is a lovely setting next to a lake in a park right in the middle of the OSU campus.

If your looking for a chance to try out that new garb before the other faires start, this would be the place.

Well, we may have a gig that day. If not I'll try to make it up.

I've heard of this one but never made it there.  With the absence of the Fairy Festival, this one just might make it on my itinerary.

Hmmm...Google Maps estimates 3:45 drive time for me.  That sounds like an overnight stay.  Time to look for a campground!

Overnight stay?  Where's your road warrior spirit?  Morwyn and I are making it a daytrip!

I'm with M on this one.  An overnight stay assures that I can get there bright and early the next morning  ;D

I love Columbus!!!  I go to Columbus a lot when I'm in PA for faire....
Cause, "Cake or death?" That's a pretty easy question.
Anyone could answer that.

M, I sent a note to the person I have been dealing with and told her that we may be having some rennies coming from Pittsburgh and campground information would be appreciated.  She was kind enough to send the following:

"The more the merrier!  The two places I've been to are Hocking Hills http://www.stateparks.com/hocking_hills.html and Alum Creek http://www.stateparks.com/alum_creek.html, both of which are a bit of a drive from Columbus but quite lovely.  If you click on the "Ohio" link it will show you all of the parks in Ohio, but I have not been to any of the other ones.  I hope you all find a nice campground!

Cheers,
Sarah"

The first place is 45.5 mi – about 1 hour 10 mins south of  the Faire site.

The second is 21.4 mi – about 32 mins north of the Faire site.  Both look nice.
