I’ve had a few people ask about when my friends and I are planning on attending the Bristol Renaissance Faire, and I promised I’d make a post when I officially knocked out a date for it.
On Saturday, July 26th the faire is hosting a fantasy costume day, and since I’m scheduled off of work that day anyway, that is the day I’m planning on attending.
This is Bristol, WI, in the United States. Not Bristol in the UK. Sorry, overseas chums! If you want to join us, here’s the address. We typically arrive by lunchtime, and usually stay until after dinner, sometimes until they close. Afterwards, hitting up Culver’s for some frozen custard almost always happens.
Barring disaster, I shall be wearing my Alistair Theirin splintmail costume, and though I can’t verify if my friends will be wearing any of their Dragon Age gear(Dale will most likely bring Varric), there will be several of us in attendance. Although encouraged, a costume is not required by any means. Come say hello, and I will not only be surprised at connections being made, but will be more than happy to spend the day galavanting around with you, most likely causing you regret and irritation by evening, followed by an immediate unfollowing on deviantART upon the next internet opportunity.
Okay, so that’s drastic, but my point is that if you’d like to hang out with some Dragon Age people at the Renaissance Faire and fan over Dragon Age, or whatever, this is an opportunity to do so.
Since I had several replies last year loathing not being able to attend for reasons of not being aware, in spite of several posts I made in advance, expect numerous reblogs of this. If you don’t wish to see that and have something that can block tags, such as TumblrSavior, I’ll be tagging each of these posts with ‘DA at Bristol’, so feel free to block that tag.
Additionally, here’s the event listing on Facebook if you’d like to connect that way. If you have any questions, hit me up with an Ask, PM, Facebook Message, or whatever floats your proverbial boat, and I’d be happy to help clarify.
Need more convincing? This is what happened in 2011.
Still not convinced? Well, we’re going without you, and we’re going to have fun. All the fun.
