It’s a scary time. Let’s just get that out of the way. I have been following the news more in the past two weeks than I have in the past two years. I worry about what is happening around the world. How it is going to affect all of you. How it is going to affect the Faire. I have asked myself is having the Faire even a priority right now; however, my heart left no room for doubt on that question. Now is definitely the time for the Fairelands to reappear. Perhaps now, more than ever in their twelve year history, they are needed. They provide a home for us to return to from our scattered corners of the world. We will gather with friends and family in a way that is shut off for so many of us now in our physical lives. I find the promise of their return brightening my every day as the time for the Faire draws closer. I hope all of you feel that comfort too and it makes what is going on in the world around us a little easier to bear and less frightening.
I know everyone is excited to hear about their applications and the regions. I apologize for being slow but the good news is that I have the acceptance lists in front of me and with the help of Olde and Elayne will be sending out those notices today, Sunday, March 22 along with instructions on how to select your shopping regions. I have had a staggering number of applications this year and am even now trying to coordinate the inclusion of one more region to accommodate you all.

Calling all the bards and music-makers, as well as their accompanying party-raisers! In more mundane tongue: DJs and hosts for the Live at the FaireChylde parties of this year’s Fantasy Faire. Faire takes place April 23rd to May 10th, but the event scheduling — including these parties — covers only the traditional eleven days. More details in the applications!

Here we are in a brand new year, and the distant rumblings of the re-emergence of the Fairelands can be heard distinctly in the not-so-distant future. So the FFR staff is taking a break from the off-season programming you have been enjoying since June, as we turn our sights towards preparations for this year’s Fantasy Faire.
In the meantime, we have some information to share on adjustments we have made this month that we believe will help carry you forward till Faire time:
Our 2018 radio drama broadcast of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and the 2019 Tales from the Fairelands are now available on Mixcloud – FantasyFaireRadioSL.
Beginning Monday, January 13th the broadcast rotation of Tales from the Fairelands will comprise selected episodes from 2016 – 2019: four Faires full of adventures. We hope that these inspired poems and stories will remind you of cherished moments from those years, and whet your appetite for what awaits you in late April.
