1008 Fall 2018 A Day’s Outing at the Maryland Renaissance Festival
Saturday, 8:30–4:30, Oct. 6 (rain date Sunday, Oct. 7, same time)
Coordinator: Ted Mosser
Leave the hectic pace of the 21st century behind! The Festival features wonderful entertainment from theatrical stage performances to jousting to musicians, plus craftsmen in medieval garb, including a blacksmith, a coin minter, and others. You can stroll the beautiful wooded paths, enjoy a variety of delicious food and beverages in one of the pubs, and shop for handcrafted gifts. We will review the weather for Monday, Oct. 1, and make a call on purchasing tickets. We cannot guarantee our visit will be rain free, but tickets are good, rain or shine. Those planning to carpool, please meet at the Tallwood parking lot at 8:30 to organize cars and receive your tickets. If you are not carpooling, please pick up your tickets at the Tallwood office the week before the event. You will be notified when tickets are available at the office. The OLLI carpool coordinator will leave any unclaimed tickets at the Will Call window after 10:30 at the Renaissance Festival so you can claim them when you arrive. Leave plenty of time to get to the Festival as it is about 75 minutes to Crownsville, Maryland, and there can be long car lines getting into the Festival grounds for parking. Plan to leave the Festival at 4:30 or at a time agreed upon with your carpool participants. Directions and a registration roster will be emailed so that carpoolers can contact one another. The fee of $21 covers your ticket cost. Food and drink at the festival are on your own. Registration for this event is on a first-come, first-served basis.
