King Arthur comes to the NJ Renaissance Faire

As you might already know, the 2nd annual New Jersey Renaissance Faire will be opening on June 4 at Liberty Lake Day Camp in Columbus, NJ.  The theme of last year’s event was Robin Hood; this year’s theme is the story of King Arthur.  However, die-hard fans will be quick to point out that neither of these mythic characters are from the Renaissance Era at all.  How can we call ourselves a Renaissance Faire when these characters are clearly from the Middle Ages?  That, kind friends and companions, is the magic of The Shire of Crossford in the English countryside where our faire lives. In my next blog entry I will take some time to explain how this very unique town works.  Stay tuned!

The New Jersey Renaissance Faire will be held on June 4, 5 and 11, 12, rain or shine. 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Directions and discounted tickets are available at our website, www.njrenfaire.com.
