The Maryland Renaissance Festival! What is the Faire? The Maryland Renaissance Festival is a recreation of a 16th century English village. Our village is named Revel Grove, and is set on a beautiful 25-acre wooded site with 85 acres of free parking. The village consists of craft and food booths, five pubs, ten major stages, a Jousting Arena and lots of games. Every day is a Festival Day in Revel Grove, in honor of a visit by Henry VIII and his Royal Court. As such, the village will have entertainment, crafts, food, and frivolity fit for a king!  Once inside the gates, you may want to check your program for a listing of all the shows, but part of the fun of our Renaissance Festival is taking your time to stroll through the lanes and let the experience unfold before you. Pause for a moment to listen to a musician. Watch a demonstration of glass blowing. Quench your thirst with a mug of ale and whet your appetite with a gigantic turkey leg, or the many food offerings on a stake (everything tastes better on a stake.) Pick up the latest gossip from the fishmonger. Thrill to the combat joust and then browse through the wares at one of the many fine craft booths. Watch authentic jousting in full armor, listen to music and choral groups, thrill at jugglers, magicians, and comely wenches. Our streets and stages are filled with nonstop entertainment.

We will meet near the Porta Potties near the main gate at 11:00 to beat the crowds.  Tickets will be discounted at 17.00$ a person, if we have more then 20 people we can get the tickets for 15.00$ each.  Costumes are also available for rent for those who want to get into the spirit of the festival.  Once there people will be given a map and a couple of events that I will be at so if people become seperated they can meet back up with the group. People are always free to break away from the group if there is something they would like to see.  There are already 22 people coming on this event from Charm City Social Club.

Hope to see all you Lords and Ladies there,
