Lack of faires in Ontario this year...anyone up for an invasion?

(1/2) > >>

Hausfrau Monica:
Although it is still early in the year, some of us have been anxious to see dates for local faires so that we can start planning our season.  It is very sad that we have lost 3 faires this season....Casa Loma, Great Northern Medieval (not confirmed) and Country Renaissance in Milton (confirmed??).  That leaves only Pirate Fest, Waterloo and Guelph within day trip range.

Osgoode in Ottawa and Upper Canada would both have to be overnight stays to travel that distance.  Any other suggestions?

I am hoping that we can plan an invasion to some place such as Sterling.  Anyone else interested?

Lady Penelope:
I've wanted to go to Sterling for a few years now.  If the funds allow and it doesn't coincide with a weekend I'll be vending at one of the Ontario faires, I'd love to go on an invasion!

PS-  There's also Robin In The Hood in Elmira.  It's the same weekend as Country Ren was last year (I think?).  It's a small faire, only on the Saturday, but it might be worth a check out if you're itching from faire withdrawl.

Hausfrau Monica:
Hopefully the faires will start posting their dates soon so we can start to make plans and budget for travelling.

Confirmed dates so far...

Robin in the Hood - June 10
Faery Fest - June 22,23,24
Pirate Festival - August 4,5,6

Royal Medieval - Not confirmed, but probably Sept 15

Country Ren is only educational this year & should be back to normal in 2013.

Hope that helps!

Hausfrau Monica:
Thanks Lady Julianna....I will be able to ask far in advance now for those days off. 

An invasion to Sterling appears to be of interest to several groups of people.  Now we just need to choose a date so we can go ahead with making budgets and plans.  Please let me know if you are interested and we will get started.
