Ren Fest is Returning with Merriment for All!

Ren Fest is the best! I could go on about how the Maryland Renaissance Festival is my very favorite annual event in the area, but I’ve done that so many times before (see here, here, here, here, here, and here) that I’ll save my time for more merriment planning.

What you won’t find in past posts, however, are this year’s logistics: The 2016 Maryland Renaissance takes place once again in Crownesville, MD, in the lovely hamlet of Revel Grove on weekends starting this Saturday, August 27, through October 23. Hours are 10am – 7pm. Admission is $19/adults, $16/seniors, $8/ages 7-15, free for 6 and under through September 11. After that, tickets go up to $24/adults, $20/seniors, $10/ages 7-15, still free for 6 and under. Multi-day passes that offer a discount are also available.
