Title: New York Capital District Renaissance Festival
Post by: theChuck on March 15, 2014, 04:03:22 PM
I just read about a new fair called the NY Capital District Renaissance Festival (http://nycapitaldistrictrenfest.com/). Looks like it's a one-weekend event to start, and is happening just west of Albany. Anyone know anything about it - who's running it, etc.?

The little I know about this faire is that it is brand new and being organized by a NYRF cast/staff vet who also helped in the start-up of the Oregon Renaissance Festival last year. It looks like some other NYRF cast members will also involved but I don't know to what extent. Their Facebook page has some info: https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-York-Capital-District-Renaissance-Festival/511652742284730 (https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-York-Capital-District-Renaissance-Festival/511652742284730)

Looked up the address for the faire and it is well known to me.  Not far out of Albany
which makes it easy to get to.   On the way to the Altamont fair grounds.  With enough support it should do great.  I wish I could help out.

I wonder if it'll be worth the drive for those of us from southern parts; it's roughly two hours north of NYRF.

Hell  I live in Alabama and if I have the money I will make the trip. You only get one chance to make a first ever event.

Anyone make it out today? We were there for the second half of the day. Overall, a good start to a fair.

Good things:

Less good things:

Obviously these are all little complaints and are to be expected given that it was the first day. But it was overall a pretty good time, and I'm hoping they grow to be even bigger.

Unfortunately, I just saw the post about this Renfest.  Does anyone know the 2015 dates yet so I can add them to my website?

Well it looks like, unless a miracle happens I will be unable to attend this years faire.  Somebody hoist a flagon of Ale for me to all of the faire goers.
