Hours are: 10am – 7pm
Located @ 955 Elm St. Eminence KY, 40019

Driving Directions to KYHRF:
From Lexington or Louisville: I-64 to Exit 35 (Shelbyville Exit). Turn north towards Shelbyville. (You'll pass a Cracker Barrel on the right) Travel north on Hwy 55 for 12 miles or so when you will reach Eminence. In Eminence turn right onto HWY 22 (Look for the Dairy Queen and turn Right onto 22). Drive half a mile. Venue is on the right across from Southern States. The drive for the venue is gravel and surrounded by fence.

From North: Take I-71S to Hwy 421E (Exit 34) to Hwy 55S through New Castle then Left onto Hwy 22 in Eminence.

I also would like to remind everyone coming that cash is not accepted by the food/drink vendors.  You MUST buy "coins of the realm" in order to purchase food and drink.  I would suggest getting them BEFORE you go in for the simple fact that if you don't, you will have to stand in a line of other M'Cracks to get them THEN get your Guinness  ;)

"There will be an area for M'Crack camping only. It will all be primitive, there aren't any types of hookups in that area, but we will have a couple of porta potties there, and it is close enough to the shower house for everyone to be able to shower and use the facility, there is even washers and dryers. The dinner and gathering that Saturday evening will actually be right next door to the site at Scriber Station, they have built a private banquet room, with a private bar, and we have reserved it for that night. It is walking distance from the faire site. They will cater the dinner, and there will be a cash bar."

"Generators are okay if they are quiet"

I'll add this to the above info later...  kind of running around a bit with family today.

Alas, due to our restaurant, we can't be there, but here's a funny story from the TN Renaissance Festival, where we were this weekend.

Steve had to use the privvies, and on the way there, it started to rain really hard.  So he continued on, and I ducked into a shop.  He eventually came back, and we - and a group of people - ended up staying in the shop for about 20 minutes until the rain let up.

The shop proprietor saw my RF pin and said, "Oh, you are part of the group that's here this weekend."  I said yes I was, then she said, "And there's another group here, I forget their name."  I said, "The M'Cracks, and we also belong to them."

At which point she shook her head and said, "I have a shop at the Kentucky Renaissance Faire, and there was a group of them there last year.  I've never seen anything like them before and what went on at that faire."

And of course I said, "Wait till this year, July 4th weekend for the National Gathering.  There'll be even MORE of them there this year."

And while she was shaking her head and saying "Oh, no, not again, not more," we were laughing and saying goodbye!   ;D

Due to an unexpected financial cost (clothes dryer taking a crap) we will not be able to afford the trip to Kentucky (sigh) but we do hope to recoup our losses and make it to GLMF for the next Gathering.

Our plans changed last-minute and we won't be coming out after all.  I bought a weekend pass in advance to save a bit but obviously won't be using it now.  If someone could use it, email me  - StaffordGwen at gmail dot com - and I'll forward the link from which they can print out the ticket.  Hoist a pint or three for me and we'll try again at MDRF!   (xposting, feel free to help spread the word.)

What an amazing weekend! Many thanks to our Kentucky family for making it possible and welcoming all of us into their lovely village.

It was a pleasure to meet the Lord High Cheekton and to know that in 2012 we will be gathering at Fairhaven of Carolina. We will do our best to match the welcome and warmth of Kentucky.

  Fun Fun Fun!   What an amazing great weekend.  Thank you so much to Lucy and the whole KY crew who did a fantastic job.   The company could not have been better and the event just seemed to go off without a hitch.  I am so looking forward to many more events with my M'Crack family, what a special group of people.   Thank you again and again for letting me be a part of the whole M'Crack universe.

I don't have the exact date yet, but I can tell you it will be the next to the last weekend of the CRF season. This is usually two weekends before Thanksgiving. This year that would be the Nov 12 and 13th weekend.

Its a great weekend as it is Pirate Christmas and a great deal of fun.

I had a great time. We fled the great state of Kentucky at midnight on Sunday, making great time to Baton Rouge, then on to Texas. Thank you everyone for your hospitality, and I'll be back next year :D

I would like to thank each and every member of our Kentucky family for hosting such a spectacular event. As always, you outdid yourselves. Special thanks to Ed and Linda, Lucy, Tinker and everyone else involved in the planning. And thank you Cher, for giving us space in your booth. Excellent job, Everyone!

And I would also like to say how much I enjoyed spending time with all of you, old friends and new. You make me realize how fortunate I am to be able to spend time with "the family I choose", and I love you all.

To the Clan M'Crack! :-* :-* :-*
