My farmers market post is a little late this week, as I was marketing all weekend with my small business. Yesterday we attended the August Faire, in a magical little town not far from here. It wasn't a Renaissance fair - more of a family fun day - but it made me think of the fairs going on around the country this time of year.
I've never been to a Ren fair, but this one in Washinton state is only about a six hour drive from me - so it's a definite possiblity for a camping trip next summer.
This site - the Renaissance and Pirate Faire Directory gives you listings of all the faires happening in your area. You can search by state, or by the type of faire you want to attend.
As for me, I had a wonderful time at the August Faire and a very nice Lughnasadh/Lammas. We had thunderstorms in the evening, but not before we were able to have a nice, sunny day at the market and enjoy mini doughnuts, beautiful Indian currys for lunch and, of course.....lemonade!
