Formerly the Upper Great Lakes Renaissance Faire we are starting a new chapter in my hometown faire's life. UGLRF was a great little faire during its 4 year run but after a two years with no faire we now have new management and are ready for a new start. The link can be found here

There is not too much on the site now but it will probably be updated as time goes by and things are more definite.

Hey Roberto, that sounds like fun. About how far would you say it was from Grand Rapids? I would love to check it out in the summer.

The website has been updated in the entertainment area. We just added a russian theatre group and a medieval samurai group. The samurai group has a 700 year old samurai sword that will be used for a cutting demo

Well, our ren faire is over for the year and even though I was able to attend for a one day I would have to say that I was very impressed with just about everything. The weather held up very nicely with lots of sun but cool temperatures. I figured with the restart that it would be a smaller faire but it was close to twice the size it was when it closed down two years ago. I got to get a look at the 700 year old samurai sword and it was a beautiful piece of work. A pair of new scissors cutting paper had a harder time than this sword did through the rolled up mat. Great lectures and demos were put on thoughout the entire faire. The best part was that it was such a diversity of different cultures. Of course the celtic presence is at almost every ren faire but we also had the samurai group, a russian theatre group mostly made up of grade school kids who preformed very professionally and the SCA and ARMA also put on great demos. I thinking of getting the local Finish group involved next year. There are still a few problems that have to be fixed but they are minor ones that can be dealt with. I haven't heard any thing about the number of people there but it did seem attendence was up in comparison with past faires. So for now it seems that next year will be a go. Thanks to all that helped spread the word or came up and participated.

Video!! Well ok its more a slide show than video but its something to give you a bit of an idea of what went on during our ren faire this year. I'm not in any of the pictures which were taken by a friend of mine (Good job Steve). My daughter made it into one (red head with black dress standing next to garb) even though her face is turned away from the camera. Hard to belive she had the granddaughter just three weeks ago. The samurai act is in there using that 700 year old sword to clip off the rolled up mat along with a few other local characters. ARMA and the SCA are also in there. The audio isn't the best but the song is still catchy. Here is the Youtube link

Well, another ren faire has come and gone. We had it last weekend and it went pretty good. I would have posted info but I just didn't have the time and I completely forgot about postine info. The faire itself was moved ahead a month so as to be the first outdoor festival for the year up here and we don't have to compete wth the Fourth of July, Festival Ironwood, and the Pavo Nurmi marathon along with everything else that happens to be scheduled in July. Good move on the faire boards part. We did have some acts bow out at the last minute probably due to the date change. I wasn't involved this year other than being a playtron-and I'm not sure if I will be in the future. Just too many things going on in my life. Still it was alot of fun. We had the grandaughters 1st birthday party at the faire. Her poor face was so covered in chocolate cake! Hopefully my daughter will post the pictures somewhere. Still, as far as the faire up here goes there are some kinks that still need to be worked out and hopefully the faire will continue next year.
