Texas Renaissance Festival / Traffic Sunday Departing?
« Last post by NYCGarion on November 14, 2017, 02:14:12 PM »
On Sunday we need to catch an 8:08PM flight out of IAH to return home to New York. What time should we plan on leaving the festival, given departure traffic, etc? I was thinking 5PM would leave enough time for traffic. Is departure traffic pretty bad at that hour?

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Texas Renaissance Festival / First Time at TRF - Highland Fling!
« Last post by NYCGarion on November 14, 2017, 02:10:47 PM »
Excited to be making my first visit to TRF this weekend for the Highland Fling! I say "first", but I'm told reliably by my parents that we went when I was a child. A friend and I are flying to Houston from New York Friday morning, and we've reserved one of the new VIP tents. I've already packed a giant roller with garb, and I'm looking forward to a fantastic weekend.

Any tips for a first-time TRFer? What are the "must-sees"? Which clans are going to be camping this weekend? I'd love to stop by and say hello. I went to faires (Scarborough, Norman, KC - apparently TRF) as a kid, but really got back into them the past five years or so after a long gap. I frequent the New York Renaissance Faire, but I've also done PA, MD, AZ, and MA over the past few years. I'm a bit of an aspiring Rennie...

I'll be wearing a black and grey wool kilt Saturday, curly-toed Son of Sandlar boots, a fur shoulder stole and a Robin Hood-style hat with a feather that suggests overcompensation (it isn't). Sunday I may be in gold tights and leather. Maybe a black leather crown. Definitely be at the bon fires, may swing by After Dark. Say hello!

Huzzah!

Texas Renaissance Festival / Re: Any traffic Fridays?

Based on my experience 2 weeks ago, Friday traffic was fine, we arrive just before noon.  Camping close to the faire entrance was already fairly busy, those parking rows seemed to be occupied by clans for the most part.  Main camping was very full by Friday night/Saturday morning.  As AngieT said, busier than I have ever seen it on one of less popular weekends.  However, I haven't been out in a few years...  Good luck and enjoy!

This past weekend, we arrived around 1:30-2:00 pm on Friday.  Traffic was fine.  I went out about 30 minutes after arrival to go to Dollar General, and it was still fine. 

As for spots, it's hard to say.  Last weekend was the busiest weekend I've ever seen, but I don't go as much as others here.  We took a drive around the campground, and there were already a ton of sites set up, more than I remembered seeing at that time.  We camped close to the entrance of the campground (not the festival), as we had kids, so we were as far away from the festival gates as you could get.  We just piled up our crew in the back of one truck and drove to the camp parking that's pretty close to the gates (closer than the campsites).
