Cedar Springs Renaissance Faire 2019

New Venue Site, New Theme, Same Vision!

Our vision is to create a family friendly outdoor faire/festival blending history and fantasy to create a more varied experience for our community and guest.

The Renaissance was a fervent period of European cultural, artistic, political and economic “rebirth” following the Middle Ages. Generally described as taking place from the 14th century to the 17th century, the Renaissance promoted the rediscovery of classical philosophy, literature and art. Some of the greatest thinkers, authors, statesmen, scientists and artists in human history thrived during this era, while global exploration opened up new lands and cultures to European commerce. The Renaissance is credited with bridging the gap between the Middle Ages and modern-day civilization. (History.com)

Our fair has some fantasy added in (Tolkien, King Arthur, Robin Hood, Fairies, etc)

Join us May 18th and 19th for a fun filled weekend. This year’s theme is The Two Kingdoms. We have one kingdom of the Elvin fashion and one of the Human fashion.

Event held at
Howard Christensen Nature Center
Camp Lily site
530 20 Mile Road

2016 Year in Review Summer Part 1

These Year in Reviews are not, what I call, official “reviews”. Like last year, they will be a series of musings, learned lessons and stories of what I experienced through out the year. Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. The theme of FIRSTS sum up the beginning, middle and end of my year, as you will see. Enjoy my year of 2016 in the Michigan Geek Scene.

Ah, Summer. Beautiful, sunny weather without a hint of snow in sight. Con season is in full swing and outdoor festivals appear to entertain you. I can only be inside of convention halls and hotel rooms for only so long before the freedom of outside beckons me. Just like the Lovin Spoonful said, “Despite the heat, it’ll be alright”.
