Maryland Renaissance Festival

Last fall, a good friend introduced us to the Maryland Renaissance Festival.  We had such a fun time we knew we would be heading back this year.  The Festival is currently in its 40th year and it runs every weekend from the end of August to the end of October.  It is located outside of Annapolis and takes about 45 minutes to get there from the D.C. area.  You can buy tickets online and skip the ticket lines there.

The Festival is huge and has numerous artisans, food and drink vendors, activities, demonstrations and plays.  There are a lot of fun activities for kids and those under 6 are free.  Inside there is face painting, a big potato sack slide, pony rides, a reptile house, etc, etc.  The food is really good too, lots of greasy festival food, plus turkey legs, chowders, crab salads, and lots of desserts and sweets.  To top it all off they have mead, ciders and numerous beers for purchase.  With all the entertainment and shows it really is a great time.
