Texas Renaissance Festival is Great This Year

I caught a last-minute chance to run over to Plantersville (Todd Mission, actually, but who knows where THAT is?) and attend this year’s edition of the Texas Renaissance Festival. Boy, was it fun! Music, shows, food and drink, and lots of shopping…

I was there mostly for the music and the provender, and I thoroughly enjoyed […]

A Few More RenFest Snaps

Faeries and giants; buccaneers and polliwogs; troubadours and gypsies. And that’s just in the first fifty feet! Here’s a few more of our favorite images from the Texas Renaissance Festival:

The gypsy songstress with Wine and Alchemy.

A real hurdy-gurdy!

Jenny sawing off another tune.

Working hard at having fun.

Enjoy the (Costumed Pageantry) Heat!

Texas RenFest 2011: Yes, They Had No Wildfires; Go! It’s Great…

We didn’t make opening weekend of the Texas Renaissance Festival this year, but we got there as quick as we could. Only to run into a big ol’ batch of pirates. It was Pirate Adventure Weekend! The opening show was stuffed with silliness, and the only thing missing was a crowd. Attendance was down, […]

It’s That Time of Year Again: Texas RenFest Date Set…

After mind-altering, tough negotiations that lasted less than 30 seconds we now have set the date for our annual family outing to the Texas Renaissance Festival: We’re going on October 22. It’s a long day, starting before 5 A.M. and ending sometime short of midnight; at least it’s traditionally that. I do the driving […]

More From the Texas Renaissance Festival: Food, Drink and Levity in the Piney Woods

One of main reasons to go to the RenFest is all the stage acts. We always try to see Arsene, who is a mime. Not your usual mime, and not always suited for young audiences! Arsene combines juggling, prestidigitation and attitude with some truly strange clothes and audience participation to keep his attendees in […]

A Wintry Time Was Had By All: The Texas Renaissance Festival

We made opening day (October 10) at the Texas Renaissance Festival this year. We hadn’t done that in a decade or more! We went prepared fore wet weather, as a cold front passed by during the night. We didn’t have any rain all day, though. There was quite a bit of water in the […]

We're Off to the Texas Renaissance Festival Today

A major portion of the Clan is making its annual pilgrimage today to the Texas Renaissance Festival near Plantersville. It’s opening day, and rain is expected; we know it’ll be slippy-slidy crazy good fun! Period music (Cantiga, The Burly Minstrel Jim Hancock, Wine and Alchemy, Istanpitta, The Bilge Pumps, The Gypsy Guerrilla Band, Tartanic) […]

Texas Renaissance Festival: Hot, Cool, Spicy

Yesterday the family and a select group of friends traveled to Plantersville, TX to visit the 34th Annual Texas Renaissance Festival. (That’s 35 years continuous running, every Fall!) This year the Festival runs every weekend from Oct. 11th through Nov. 30th. The RenFest is held in a large, private park about six miles south of […]
