2011 Season a Great Success
Thank you to everyone who came out to support our second annual New Jersey Renaissance Faire. We have heard nothing but positive feedback and the number of guests we had greatly increased from last year. The reaction of the kids to our show was one of the most rewarding things for me to witness. Everyone had a ball at the faire, and for the children, the magic was very real. Whether it was meeting larger than life heroes like the Lords of Adventure or King Arthur and his knights, or searching for answers in the Quest for the Rose game, smiles were worn all day long on the young faces.
We are all very pleased to be a part of what we are creating here. It is great to see the power of real human interaction to the people of our culture who are used to TV and instant messaging. The most common compliment i heard about our show was how welcome everyone felt and the strength of our cast in bringing the streets to life in our little village.
Many old friends returned, like the Four Pieces of Eight, Rising Regina, the Mad Mechanicals, Adamo Ignis, Marshall Laww, the Merry Musick Makers and we also had many new friends and entertainers that were a resounding success. The crowd really enjoyed Emomojo Jousting, David Smith the One Man Sideshow, Mars Mandrake the Magician, Passtimes Musicke, Ash Cary and his falcons along with many others who joined us this year as well. We will have many more in 2012.
We also saw many other special events and services arrive. Jason Klein joined our management team and brought his glass blowing expertise, Howling Woods Farms brought majestic wolves and we added many new games including the Fight Circle, The Paste in Ye Face, and a fully functional catapult supplied by a local scout troupe.
All in all, our faire is on the grow and i am sure i missed some very wonderful additions that we had. The greatest addition however, was all of the new faces and patrons who graced us with their presence. It is that support that lets us keep doing what we love to do and we are forever in your debt. We hope to see you again in 2012.
Kind regards, TJ Miller and the staff of the New Jersey Renaissance Faire.
The New Jersey Renaissance faire will be held on June 2, 3 and 9, 10 of 2012, along with a school day on Friday June 1. Visit us at www.njrenfaire.com
