HUZZAH--and THANK YOU for making OUR FAIRE truly one of the best around, and this year's faire the best ever. Simply said, the annual Village Renaissance Faire has reached new heights in every way! The premier show, Baywing Falconry, has filled not only the sky with beautiful sights and birds, but the grounds with more attendees than ever before. But as always, no one show stands alone at the faire, it is the impressive, diverse mix of shows, activities, and merchants that make this faire one of the best around. Just ask the national Renaissance Magazine, as they chose our faire for a weekend visit. And they were not disappointed, thanks to YOU.
The Village Library of Wrightstown and the Village Renaissance Faire would like to thank all of our volunteer performers, volunteer staff, and sponsors for coming together and making it possible for us offer our community an affordable, entertaining, and educational faire designed to appeal to all, for a cause....the public library. We greatly appreciate your willingness to volunteer and in some cases earn community service hours at our event. A decision to volunteer for the community is an honorable one,and we are honored to be your chosen community partner. In only one year we boasted:
100 volunteers donating in excess of 1000 hours
20 performing ensembles including over 200 performers donating over 2000 collective hours.
TOGETHER we are able to offer a show like none before, all for a mere pittance of $10 adults, $5 students, and even free for children under 5. We offered a flying birds of prey show, aerialists, firebreathers, jousters, fencers, ice breathers, and sciencetellers, not to mention Human Chess, Live Steele Trebuchet Launchings, artisans, free childrens crafts and activities.
For those who came last year and have already promised to return we are proud to have you in our family. For Ye Lords and Ladies, and anyone who has even an inkling for FUN, festivities, and edutainment, it will return and again expand each year, but for only one weekend in September. You can still get involved, or at least remain in touch by joining us on Facebook or our email list, both available from our home page.
