Ren Faire Season Starts Friday!

This will be our second year attending the Utah Renaissance Festival and Fantasy Faire! We’re actually teaming up with a friend this year so there will be even more to our booth.

What will have there this year is our jewelry and wings but also our new line of fantasy toys including our fairytale themed peg dolls, fairy bubbles, fairy bowling, and ancient board games such as Senet and Hnafatafl. We will also be doing fairy tattoos and possibly henna and face painting.


The fair will not be in the same location as it usually is. The farm that loans us the fields we set up in every year was badly flooded over the last two weeks and the water still has not receded. This was very sad news and we hope everything clears up soon for the families of the farm. Luckily its not yet time to plant those fields but that is coming soon so hopefully the water leaves quickly.

 

The good news is there is a new location and just in time! It is just off I-15, exit 344, to 1900 W and turn left. Then turn left again onto 1350 S (the turn comes up REALLY quick so keep an eye out, its only about 200 yds). Follow that road for less than a 1/4 mile and you’ll come to the gates and your there. While the old site had the wonderful advantage of keeping everything modern out of sight and giving the faire the perfect atmosphere without being too out of the way, a lot of people have said it was hard to find. I’ve invited several people in the past who gave up finding it because the rural area was a bit off the beaten path. The new site won’t have this problem. As far as I know this new site is just for this year while the usual site dries out, but it does have some marked advantages. The fair will be clearly visible from the highway and is a cinch to find. It’s also really close to restaurants and hotels. Hopefully this will bring in even more guests.
