3) Where can I stay? - There are many hotels in Gainesville. Most are out by I-75. There are a few hotels and B&Bs downtown and on SW 13th street. Check your favorite travel service website for listings.
We also have crash space and tent space available for those who need it. Please contact the Event Steward if you need a place to stay or pitch your tent.
4) What do I wear? - Please wear Ren Faire appropriate garb. We will have Viking, Greek and Roman, Italian, French, English in the tents. Bring a cloak. The weather always ranges from wet, to hot, to cold.
Please do NOT wear your SCA ranking jewelry or belts (unless that is the only belt you have). Our ranking system maybe confusing to the mundane populace.
Do NOT bring your expensive items with you. Thievery does happen (especially on kids day).
NO live steel, not even peace-tied.
