After dancing around and debating about going or not I broke down and went this weekend. Why I was putting it off I don’t know. It was actually a lot of fun, something one needs to do at least once in their life. There is a lot of period confusion among the fair goers, its not all pure Medieval Renaissance times with some fun in the form of trolls, ogres and fairies tossed in for good measure. But its all in good fun.
You get a good smattering of crafts, free wine tasting courtesy San Antonio winery, beer huts, music, free shows…minstrel, comedy/variety, magic and wenches all tossed in with some pretty good food too.
This isn’t a free event. Tickets at the door are $25 head, you can purchase slightly discounted tickets at select Walgreen stores enumerated HERE. Parking at the Santa Fe dam will also set you back $10 bones for a dirt lot. Map to location here near the junction of the 210/605 Freeways. Better hurry as next weekend is the last weekend it will run this year.
All pics by me. More in my flickr set HERE.
