WIRF Letter

(1/7) > >>

Lady Renee Buchanan:
Hi, Everyone.  I found this letter on another board.  I've never been to this faire but have always heard great things about it.  Didn't see anything like it in this thread, so here it is:

Greetings Entertainers,

As you've probably heard by now, the WI Ren Faire has been threatened with the possibility of foreclosure.

As things now stand, everything is very much 'up in the air'. Various solutions are being proposed, and a whole range of possibilities are being entertained -- from finding a buyer(s) to rallying support from the shareholders and others to help the faire reach its next season.

At this point, we are still planning on a 2009 season. We also understand that this is your livelihood, and we wanted to inform you about the current situation so that you can book other venues if you need to.

We will keep you updated as we learn more. Because of the foreclosure action, time is short and a solution has to be found quickly. This means that we should be able to provide you with more concrete information regarding the 2009 season by the first of the year.

If any of you know someone who might be interested in purchasing the faire (the grounds are owned by the faire -- 120 acres riverfront), if you know people who might be interested in investing, or if you have other ideas, feel free to let us know.

We'll keep you abreast of the situation and hope that we get to see you in 2009!

Marietta Graziella:
Thanks for the update Lady Renee.

Anyone heard anything new with respect to this?

Lord Clisto of York:
Hail all,

  After talking to the president of the faire this afternoon, I have been given the go ahead to post this information.

It is now official that the Upper Wisconsin Renaissance Faire will be on from July 4th/5th through July 18/19th Saturdays and Sundays for three weekends. So, plan on making the journey to Chippewa Falls and having a great time. If you would like more information just e-mail me. The Wisconsin Faire website is going to be updated to reflect these dates very soon.

Sir Clisto

Hopefully this season goes well enough to warrant expanding the run back to it's full length.  I would hate to think that shortening it to three weeks would hurt the overall success of this faire.
