groomporter very well stated. Festies is a new one to me but very accurate indeed.

It seems to be a regional term. I often consider a Rennie just a participant but a friend was kinda surprised when I call myself a Rennie as a booth owner. So for some it has a pejorative context.

But I have a friend from California who said in their terms were that " Rennies" are participants who are interested in the history, whereas "Festies" are those who are just out to party, imbibe recreational substances, and get laid.

language/slang is fascinating.

Squire's Tavern / Re: Renfest faire grounds when faire is over ?

MNRF has corporate parties and wedding on site over the summer before their season.

An Iowa show had an interesting idea that I don't know how well it worked. If I recall they were going to cover the costs of maintaining booths in return for being able to rent them out to other vendors for other events (halloween, or cowboy themed?) during the year if the Renfair vendor could not attend the other events.

Pleasure Faire of Southern California / Good Bye to an Era
« Last post by Sir Michael Geare on Yesterday at 04:49:21 PM »
For all those who've attended the Original Renaissance Pleasure Faire (RPFS). a faire staple and icon has bid farewell.  After such long and noble service, Will Wood, better known as Sir Francis Drake, is stepping out of his boots, laying down his sword and retiring as the character that he portrayed for the past 51 years.
