The Howl


One of the principal local attractions for Md. residents is the Maryland Renaissance Festival.

According to Annapolis Patch reporter Deb Belt the festival will be “ held at Revel Grove outside Annapolis, will go on as planned as Hurricane Florence pushes into the Carolinas. The 42nd season of the country's second-largest renaissance festival is held at 1821 Crownsville Road, complete with jousting, minstrels, magicians and a re-creation of King Henry VIII and his court. The event runs Saturdays and Sundays through Oct. 21.”

With such an enormous fair they are going to bring in a lot.  Patch reporter Belt also stated that “200 professional performers take part on stage, in authentic combat armored jousting on steeds and streets filled with village characters.” WTOP reporter Jennifer Ortiz also had some additional info on the festival. “Since 1977, the festival brings acrobatics, jousting, stage fighting and more to its 11 stages throughout the 25-acre village.” This goes the show the long history and tradition this festival has in Maryland.

Patch gives us detail about what will be at the fair. There will also be several vendors selling a wide variety of food and over 140 artists with their crafts at the Renaissance shops, as well as five taverns. The Patch also goes on to describe how there will be Shakespeare's skum in its 34th rendition, and they will have play also their most plays featuring Hey Nunnie Nunnie song patter delight, the London Broil cooks up rare juggling well done, and in the 45th year of their enormously popular comedy sword fighting puke and snot with their bedazzled fast-paced humor.

According to the Patch, the activities include jousting, eight stages, vendors, street performances and pub/tavern entertainment. Parking is free; all food and games only take cash, with select craft platforms can take credit/debit. While costumes are not required, they are unquestionably encouraged. The festival will remain open rain or shine so visitors should plan accordingly.

Many CHS students are looking forward to attending “I plan on going to the Renaissance Fair because I’m very interested in checking out the swords and food they ?” senior Abraham Manilla said. Fahim Patwary who was ecstatic about going to the festival declared “Oh my god I can’t wait to see dudes sword fighting!”. This goes to show how much excitement there is around the Festival

Stop by the Renaissance fair if you, like medieval crafts and are interested in the middle age.
