I'll see you tomorrow for frolicksome frivolity and festive folly at Her Majesty's Winter Renaissance Faire (lower your speaker volume before clicking!) in Madison, Wisconsin!  I've missed you since we goofed off at Stronghold Olde English Faire, and I'm sure we all of us have plenty of new adventures to recount and laughs in which to heartily indulge!

Where?  614 Westgate Mall, Madison, WI, 53711 - down on the right next to Woodcraft!

Where can I stay locally if I want to spend the weekend in town?  Rooms at the Madison Radisson are offered at a discounted rate of $79.00 for anyone who is attending Her Majesty's Winter Renaissance Faire and wants to stay tonight, December 3rd, or tomorrow night, December 4th.

When?  Saturday, December 4, 2010, 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

How much?  "How little?" you mean! Tickets are available cheap-as-free at the door for a scant $7.00! Advance tickets are only $6.00 and can be procured at Ravenworks in person or by phone at 608-630-2348 (ask for Raven).  Children under 5 years of age are admitted to the Faire free of charge!

Who's joining Jane there?  Phoole Faves aplenty!  
  • Her Majesty and Her Majesty's Court, introducing the electric and scintillating Marybeth Townsend in the role of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, First Queen of England to rule by that name, Queen of England, Ireland, Wales, France & the Virginias etc.
  • The Guilde of St. Michael, Trayn'd Bandes, engaging you in Elizabethan military life, weapons training, barber surgery, and fun times galore
  • Brilliant craftspeople demonstrating their talents and selling their wares! From the event's own website (lower your speaker volume before clicking - there's surprisingly loud music!) here:  "Our vendors have Renaissance clothing, cloaks, capes, leather goods, swords, shields, jewelry of all sorts, handthrown pottery and Renaissance dinnerware, lampwork beads, and a host of other wonderful items. We also have tarot readers, astrologers, mystical magical items and more. Vendors include Hearthstone Arts, Relics, Ravenworks, Tyme Travel Photography, Sheldon's Pewter, Sir Rocky Rococco's, Ingrid the Crafty, Tom's Jewels, Ollin's Swords (A Phoole Fave),Grandma's Cookies and more...
  • Delightful musicians, jugglers and storytellers with fare for every age
  • You!
I always have hilarious adventures at this event.  It's low-key, cozy, and intimate, and I always have time for quality chit-chattery on many and divers subjects with everyone.  On the morrow, then, good cousins!
