I've wanted to check out the Maryland Renaissance Festival since I first moved to DC seven years ago. Every summer and fall, I made plans to go which always fell through. This year, I grabbed some people and made my way to Annapolis, Maryland for the festivities, which will be in town until October 20, 2013.
I was not disappointed; it was by far my favorite event in the ren faire/celtic festival genre that I've attended. It was pleasing for both extremes as well- my guy has been to many such events and loves the Maryland Renaissance Festival and my friend had never been to one and enjoyed herself so much that she was sad to leave.
