Used to go to Scarby in the 80's as a kid/teen.  I can't believe how its grown.  Got back into it in '05 with the wife and now do the costumes and everything at Scarb/TRF several times a year.  Some day when work has less of a stranglehold on us, we want to travel around the country and see different faires.

We started the little one (9) out last year and she enjoys it.

I was 14 or 15 when I went to my first faire (Carolina) and I dressed up for the first time just last year (24).

I started attending TRF 26 years ago, at the tender age of 18.  Man does time fly!  I have seen a lot of changes thru the years.

I went to my first faires NJRF & NYRF which ran back to back when I was 17 and was in piece mailed garb, was hooked in that moment. I'm 33 now so 16 years with a about a 4 year break when my son was young and ill. I was glad to come back and am having a blast!

I was 28 when I first attended...but I know kids who started in utero; the youngest I've seen at faire in garb was 4 days old. 

*sigh*  I am literally watching my 2nd generation of faire kids grow up.

I was 16 when we went to the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire.  I was a turkey for another 10 years and then after going to ASL, me and a bunch of friends began to work as Stage Interpretors for the Faires.  We did that for many more years!

I believe that I was 28 when I first attended my first fest, that was at the ORF, and in garb the first year... (although very basic garb.)

I've been to the fest once without costume, and I didn't have as much fun.  I've attended the TRF, ORF, KHRF, GRF, and several "smaller" weekend RenFests...

I was 10 or 11 in the mid 90s. I've been enthralled ever since. I couldn't really start attending regularly until I was 16 though and didn't start garbing until I was 18. Strangely enough, I attended TRF almost every single year since then, usually at least two or three weekends, but no one started recognizing me until last year.
