Join us Sept 3-6 for our annual Maryland Renaissance Faire outing over Labor Day Weekend!
Typically, it goes something like this:
Thursday: Show up at @Annes & @pragtastic's place in Alexandria, VA (or early Friday if need be)
Friday: Decamp for Anne's parents' house in Maryland (near the Renn Faire) & make a big dinner and play boardgames.
Saturday: Renn Faire all day!
Because of space constraints this event caps at a dozen guests. BYO sleeping surface (there are additional beds at the parents' house, tho, Fri & Sat). Renn ticket is $19 - typically we buy them as a group just before the event so just slip @Annes a twenty.
We highly recommend flying into DCA. From DCA (Reagan), take the Metro 2 stops on the Blue OR Yellow line to King St Old Town (towards Franconia-Springfield or Huntington, respectively). We'll pick you up curbside from there if you text us (there is a bus stop & parking lot just outside the station's main exit).
Maryland Rennaisance Festival is pretty awesome. Lots of great beer on tap, seafood & other delicious fare, and a large shaded village of shops and attractions to tour around. There is the annual testing of strength at the hammer drop, axe throwing, and some good shows. New initiates should be prepared to stare in awe and wonder at the fantastic Goodly Woods stand and be severely tempted to join the Icrontic wooden mug club.
