This Month On Fantasy Faire Radio: August 2019

There was a lot of gratitude and even more fun at “The Night Fantastic” this past month, as Fantasy Faire Radio said “Thank you” to all the sponsors and supporters who have helped us move from being solely an event station to year-round broadcasting. The Elven Forest was filled with listeners, sponsors, and supporters of all kinds – peaking at sixty residents! The owners of The Elven Forest, Belladaine Nightfire and Dark Moon, opened their realm and have invited FFR to return in the future.  Thanks to all of you who joined us.

August will prove a bit more elusive, as people in the northern hemisphere enjoy their summer holidays and vacations.  It is a month where we have a lot of things in the works, and there may yet be a few surprises in store. So, stay tuned for *Breaking News!* which could be released later in the month. You just never know. But if you stay tuned to Fantasy Faire Radio, you WILL know!

FANTASY FAIRE RADIO SAYS “THANK YOU!”

 

Two years ago, Fantasy Faire Radio moved from being an annual event radio station running only during the Faire, to year-round broadcasting in cooperation with our media partner, Radio Riel.  It has taken a lot more than a will and a playlist to make this shift possible for a volunteer-run station. It’s required DJs, production, sponsors, and most of all listeners.  

Fantasy Faire Radio provides music and special programs for listeners in over 100 countries monthly. We invite you to come and celebrate, and let us say, “Thank you” for helping us make this vision a reality.

The Night Fantastic: A Fantasy Faire Radio Celebration

We talked to the Faire organiser David Abbot, in charge of operations, and he explains what a mammoth task it is keeping something like the Faire running, and how the community comes together to help.

We also visited Genesia and talked to its creators, Haveit Neox and Lilia Artis, about the amazing worlds they created above and below the waves – and the dance performances they staged there.

Fairelanders’ Final Ravedown! Shh, it’s a Sekret!

Instructions from the Super Sekret Party Committee of Hijinks and Shenanigans: Here’s posters to be handed out and glued on top of the Ball posters allover the Fairelands. Don’t let the Pawlice catch you! Keep the post crypted! Complete radio and stream and messenger pigeon silence until it is TIME!

PS: For the love of Fairechylde, make sure to confiscate the glowsticks!

PS2: Remember to blatantly advertise the sponsor: Zander likes pixies!

And so the curtain closes.

It is the last day of Fantasy Faire 2019.  I have found a soft cushion on one of Midas rooftops to rest and contemplate. To sort through the memories and emotions that this year’s Faire has left behind. The treasure of far more value than the grand accomplishment our Lindens raised is, or than the wonderful new shinies  still waiting in my handbag ( I do have one like Hermione’s… bottomless.) for opening-the-loot day. There is a bittersweet melancholy to this day, a feeling of loss – I so don´t want it to end, don’t want to see these worlds of wonders disappear!
