Sneak Peaks for Winslowshire 2010

Ah sneak peaks…kind of like a preview from the movies right?  I think I can keep you still in suspense up until the event, but I think I can give you a few things that have been confirmed for this coming June!

June 26th and 27th are our dates for this year from 11 am to 5 pm per day.  Tickets this year will be $12.00 for adults, and $7.00 for kids.  We’ll have discounts too, such as: $2.00 Off for Veterans that bring a Military ID, $2.00 Off if you come dressed in Renaissance Attire or $2.00 Off if you bring a 5 pound bag of dry pet food (any brand is fine) *just know that we can not combine discounts.

So far, Artist Andy Volpe http://www.andyvolpe.com/index.html and Author Resa Nelson http://www.resanelson.com/ is confirmed.  We also know that Antika Nueva will be there http://www.antikanueva.com and Shaine the Blacksmith http://www.forgedknives.net/ is really excited and happy to be coming back…I actually heard he sold out of all of his stock last year!  (Including his last metal hand made stake…).

More confirmed vendors have sent in their things, but I don’t want to give it all away…heh heh…oh but our friend The Bonnie Weaver will be there doing live demonstrations again on how to weave with her loom.

We have some  performers lined up too!  Such as our friend the Dirge Queen, Lady Fair, The Three Graces (oh yes, they did confirm they are coming!), Guy Todd, and Paul Calvo http://www.paulcalvo.com/ is coming!  We also know that Diabolis in Musica http://www.diabolisinmusica.com/index.html has also confirmed for this year.

We also have confirmed that The Neville Companye  http://www.rainasmind.com/neville/index.shtml is coming back to fight it out again this year!  So exciting!

Well, I don’t want to give it all away, but I hope I’ve given you a sample of what we’ll have going on this year, and hope that you make your plans now to come to Winslowshire Festival for the Animals – Third Year!

A Third year for Winslowshire 2010

I can’t even believe that 2009 is over!  Wow, that went by fast!  We already do have dates set up for the last weekend in June of 2010 for Winslowshire and the website is slowly growing all over again…we do have some new people coming in, but I can’t divulge just yet!  (I do want to keep you all on your toes)

In the meantime, I can write about more of what we had happen last year (June) and say THANK YOU for all that have supported us in a big way!  I would also like to say a BIG THANKS to the following people that make Winslowshire possible!

My good friend Joyce Morin Strong from http://www.goboston.com has helped us in so many ways by putting an article out and then using Twitter (I’m on Twitter too, as @giazzpet), helping post on Facebook and other places as well, so if you are in need of tickets for any event in Boston, MA or anywhere in New England for that matter, do check her out!  She also is in charge of http://www.cheaptickets.com – great deals!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Debra White of Winslow Farm http://www.winslowfarm.com for without her, we would have no faire!

Also, I would like to give a shout out to http://www.nerennies.net to say thanks for letting me post on your site, it really did help us get to the numbers we were looking for, and hope we can post again for this coming June.

Thanks to all of our Crew and Volunteers, for without them, we would really be up um, well, a creek….or be in the mud…so thanks gang, you know who you are.

Thanks to our new friends, who I will blog about in more current posts, and thanks if you voted for our little faire on http://www.renaissancefestivalmusic.com I hope we can win something for this year..hope hope hope…

Happy New Year everyone!  Stay safe for 2010 and hope we see you in JUNE!
