Treasure Hunt

Interactive Online Game

Ahoy Mateys!

Captain Henry Avery  was nervous about getting caught red-handed with stolen money and jewels, so stashed a large sum of Spanish Doubloons in his secret pirate cove. He was not sure if he’d be able to find where he buried the treasure upon his return, so he drew up a treasure map and hid clues to help him find his way back. But, now he can’t seem to make heads or tails of his own clues. Can you follow the clues and map to help Captain Avery find his missing riches?

Drunk and Disorderly

Live October 18

Drunk and Disorderly was formed when David Anthony, The Foxy Bard, roped several poor sods into being in his band. That was over two years ago, and yet we still don’t have a set list. But that’s all fine because all we need is the key and we can deliver! We pride ourselves on our unique blend of music that is a mixture of period music, traditional Celtic style music, and traditional internet meme songs. We are also one of the few bands that are able to sing in over 40 different languages.

Accents Renaissance and Historic Design

Featured Vendor

Eleven years ago I attended my first Renaissance festival…but researched before going which led to creating garb and the necessary hats, for one cannot attend faire without proper head coverings! I created my first hat for that very first festival and the need to create the best took fire. The fruits of my “fire” are still a passion, and always bring a thrill to my soul when someone finds that One Hat that gives them cheer.
