Did Ireland have Renaissance? Many Youtube historians would say no; however, Ireland in fact was not as cut-off as people think from the rest of the world. This video covers some of the perpetrators of Irish Renaissance, from Gerald 'Poet' Fitzgerald to Margaret O'Carroll, who impressed Europe with their lavish banquets and hospitality. The stories of sophisticated literature, poetry, and music in Ireland was carried back to the heart of Renaissance in mainland Europe, which awed many and earned respects for the high culture that were emerging from Ireland. Ireland took full part in the European Renaissance, and was a part of the growing world. I hoped to bring back the history of Irish Renaissance which is now forgotten, and open up the whole new side of mediaeval Ireland that is still believed as barbaric and uncivilised.

Welcome To The GLA, Grand Lake Renaissance Festival!!!!! We Cannot Wait To See You At The 37th Annual Pelican Festival!!!!!! 👑🎪🎭
Really need a post with location vendors and entertainers so I can share and help get the word out.
Has Grand Lakes Ren Faire Closed leaving only Queensferry Ren Fair the only faire if Vinita?
After reading several of the posts by Kittye I felt I needed to share this. I have been a part of three faires in my run as a rennie. I was a board member for one, a co creator for the second and cast member for the third. I was alarmed by Kittye's last post because I have never heard of any faire owner putting down another faire nor falsifying information deliberately.
I support and understand Kittye's decision for this years faire and I know that she and each member of Grand Lakes is an honorable member, they are people who can be trusted.
As for faires? new faires have to grow and they have to have the support needed to grow them. Like a flower it takes time to develop one. The first five years are growth time. A flower does not magikally appear the day after a seed is planted nor does a new faire. It takes time, volunteers, and finances. The faire I assisted in co creating had done its research and we had a plan for growth. The problem was two fold. Three people can not build, plan, and make things happen, and those who are placed in critical areas need to be trusted. In our case the vendor coordinator had accepted payments without documenting them nor filing them.
The newest fair I am part of, Canterbury, has been guests of Grand Lakes and I was overwhelmed by the love that the members extended to us. I was here the year of the great flood. I remember arriving late and assisting with the final set up of the Grand tent and the sleeping areas. Because it was dark we opted to stay with another cast member in their tent. The rain was lightly falling when we went to sleep. At an early hour I needed the facilities and step out into a rising creek. The rain had swollen the pond and it was beginning to flood.
As I quickly made sure all of our cast was up I checked on the Grand tent. Water was a foot deep and everyone was trying to help get things off of the ground. But the thing I noticed was that the permanent members of the faire and its court were there assisting everyone and anyone;. They just showed up to help.
Later we met at Kittye's house and were given food, drink and a lot of laughs. I had the best time meeting new people and we were accepted as if we were old friends, This is the sign of a long lasting faire - acceptance and a willingness to reach out.
For those who are not aware Starting and running a faire is a major production. Vendors, Performers, cast, and garb have to be considered, for those who travel there is the logistics of living quarters, trailers, and garb. Performers and vendors have additional expenses and logistics. And while all of this is going on you have to have finances, advertising, and space to run everything. My hat goes off to Kittye who took on a large portion of this without announcing it to everyone. It is a true sacrifice.
Kittye you will always have my support and those who come with me.. I am eagerly waiting to see you again and look forward to next year. I plan to bring the French Ambassador with me, his valet, and perhaps another. We will be their to support you. I continue to lite a candle for you. As i can I will try to help long distance like.
Yours in the Spirit of a Rennie

In Service to the Dream,
Your Board of Directors

08/11/2020

We stand in sorrow at the loss of one of our Craig County neighbors from COVID-19; our thoughts and prayers go out to their family and friends.

Now, more than ever, call and check on your neighbors, friends, and family. Take all precautions to safe guard yourselves and those around you.

07/27/2020

From the Board of Directors,

After much thought and review of the current state and national daily increases of COVID-19 cases; and our Home County seeing a sharp spike in positive cases, we feel we cannot, in good conscience, hold a rescheduled Festival during the ongoing Pandemic.

We feel that our beloved Patrons, Vendors, and Performers Health and Safety are worth far more than ANY amount of money.

We will see you all in March 2021 for the 7th Season of Vinita's Hometown Renaissance Festival: Grand Lake Renaissance Festival!!!

In Service to the Dream and You All,

GLRF Board of Directors

04/29/2020

Good early morning GLRFers. We hope you are all washing your hands, wearing your masks when you are out-and-about, and generally taking care of yourselves.

We also wanted to keep you updated on the postponement of GLRF. No reschedule dates have been chosen as of yet. We are keeping an eye on the State Department of Health's website and keeping abreast of data. The health of our Patrons, Fairemily, and Staff matter much more to us than a Festival, even though we are missing ALL of you.

Be well and safe, especially with businesses opening back up.

The Board of GLRF

03/20/2020

Greetings GLRFers! We wanted to take this time to remind you to take care of yourselves. Wash your hands with warm water and soap multiple times a day, take your vitamins, get plenty of rest, and don't forget to finish your garb for our reschedule festival!

03/17/2020

After an Emergency Board Member phone conference, we the Board Members have arrived at a difficult decision with regards to Grand Lake Renaissance Festival. Due to the latest credible information available to us on COVID-19, the very real fact that we care about our community, our fellow Rennies, our immediate families and yes, ourselves, we have come to the decision to POSTPONE Grand Lake Renaissance Festival until later this year. YES, we WILL be back later this year.

For our Vendors – we LOVE you all and want ALL of us to remain safe and as healthy as possible. We do not want to add to your financial burden and thus, will be refunding your booth fees that you paid for March 2020. That way if you are in a financial bind and need important things like fuel, food, medications, etc; you will have funds in your pocket to help you do so. For those vendors who want to join us later this year and beyond, we are doing a “2 for 1” offer – our rescheduled festival AND GLRF 2021 for one price. This means if you want a 10x10 space for BOTH Festivals, you pay the usual 10x10 price … ONCE – not for each Festival. Speak with Vendor Director, Ms. Lynne Miller for more information on this “2 for 1” pricing.

For our Entertainers – we LOVE and ADMIRE all of you. We also want you all to be safe and as healthy as possible. You have a place with us for BOTH the Rescheduled GLRF 2020 as well as GLRF 2021. Speak with Entertainment Director, Ms. Pamala Williams for more information.

For our Volunteers – THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! We could NOT do ANYTHING without you and hope you are able to join us later THIS year as well as years to come.

For our Patrons – we LOVE you and want you safe, non-stressed, and as healthy as possible. While we love you, we do have some board members and family of board members who have co-morbidities and/or immunosuppression that leaves us all at risk. It is our hope that you will make plans to join us for our RESCHEDULED Festival later this year.

Keep checking back for our dates, which are TBD as of this posting. Our hours will NOT change and remain Saturday: 10am – 8pm, Sunday 11am – 6pm. And our Chosen Charity will remain “Miami Animal Alliance” for whom we take $2.00 of each adult ticket (both daily and weekend pass) and donate to.
As ALWAYS, our Admission Ticket prices are as follows:
Child (ages 0-5 years) – FREE
Youth (ages 6-12) - $2.00 daily or $3.00 for weekend pass
Student (ages 13-17) - $3.00 daily or $5.00 for weekend pass
Adult (ages 18-59) - $7.00 daily or $10.00 for weekend pass
Senior (ages 60+) - $2.00 daily or $3.00 for weekend pass
MILITARY/VETERANS (with valid ID) – ALWAYS FREE – we will NEVER charge the people who have and do keep us safe and FREE.
