Merry Meet, Merry Part and Merry Meet Again

All good things must come to an end….even little Winslowshire Festival.  Yes…it is true.

Winslow farm has decided that they are going in a different direction.

We would like to thank ALL of our performers, merchants and of course our hard working cast and crew that made this Festival 10 Classic Renaissance Faires across America : http://www.thedailymeal.com/10-classic-renaissance-faires-across-america (yeah, I am still not believing that either!).

We’d like to personally thank Nourish Lexington, http://www.nourishlexington.com who not only became the one and only Vegetarian food vendor that was fabulous but also was like finding a diamond – plus we now became friends.

We would like to thank ALL of you who came to the festival, whether it was our very first year (yeah, it was small) to the very last year (2011 season).  We would like to thank ALL of the people who have supported us (behind the scenes) like GoBostonCom http://www.gobostoncom.com and others.

We thank all of YOU who have become our friends and family – we were lucky to see some friends from the past (who I never thought I would see again) and meet some new ones every year.

We have other festivals/faires in the works, so other things are coming our way.  I like to think that Winslowshire was my springboard into this new career for both of us.  Without that, we would not have had this many opportunities that have come our way now.

So, Merry Meet, merry part and Merry Meet Again – Fare thee well, Winslowshire, you will always remain sweet in our eyes.

Shakespeare at play at Winslowshire Festival

Duncan Inches has been performing as the great bard himself, William Shakespeare for many different festivals and faires all over the Country and we’ve been fortunate to have him perform with us since the very beginning of Winslowshire Festival.

Duncan has a knack of getting the character of William Shakespeare so well, that you almost feel like you are talking to the great bard himself.  He will let you ask questions and he’ll answer them as Shakespeare also.  He also performs for libraries, schools and other lecture series.

He also is a character actor that you may have seen in some movies like; McLintock (yeah, the one with John Wayne) and others.

We love having Shakespeare come to our festival, and he really loves Winslowshire – he tells me he loves this festival as it’s very intimate and friendly, and the animals add another element to it. 

We hope you can come to Winslowshire and meet Shakespeare.  Maybe he’ll answer your questions too!  Don’t forget the festival is coming up this June 25th and 26th from 11 am to 5 pm.
