Goodly Folks, It just so happens that on Sunday I was out and about TRF when I heard music. I was quite surprised as we are closed and none of the musicians are about, or so I thought. I followed the music through the forests surrounding TRF and I came upon a clearing. The music was beautiful and I quickly realized that the music was from Cantiga. As I entered the clearing, the musicians took immediate notice as I entered and bid me enjoy their impromptu performance. They informed me that I had come into the land of Nuevo Chile’, a beautiful place where they and others reside when not playing at a fair or festival. Apparently, since so many Renaissance Festivals were unable to open this spring and summer, Cantiga resolved to use the magic of the internet to magically transmit their performance to all their family, friends, and fans. I was quite impressed to find out that many of our friends, such as, the burly minstrel, Jim Hancock and Tartanic, as well as many others have made use of this fantastical medium to share their talents with their many friends and fans. It is an opportunity for all to enjoy and show their support during these unprecedented times. You can buy their music or shows on any number of formats or share a tip via a virtual tip-jar using several payment platforms. So, as you wander the “inter-webs” and if you happen to see a virtual Renaissance Festival, please visit. You will discover links to performers, shop owners, artists and more. Your support will allow them the resources to continue their art and work, so they can share with you this fall at TRF. You may have noticed every week TRF recognizes one our shop owners and we bid you to enjoy their artwork and wares of all those you have come to appreciate over the years at TRF. They all look forward to returning this fall. You can discover more about Cantiga on their Facebook page and in a short while there will be a recording of the concert, I happened upon, that you can enjoy. Their music is can be purchased on Apple music, Play music, Spotify, YouTube music. I hope you will take a moment to look for your favorite Renaissance artist, artisan, craftsperson, musician, or performer to show your appreciation. To close I wouldst like to thank Martha, Alex, Amanda, and Rio Blue for a lovely, peaceful Sunday afternoon concert. For a moment, my cares were lifted away, and I relished the uplifting spirit and joy of Cantiga’s music. I will leave you with some portraits and and a small bit of music I managed to capture. Huzzah! -TheKing ... See MoreSee Less
Me my girlfriend and our dog!! Thank you for this 🏳️🌈 we appreciate you and can't wait for this years renaissance ❤ but also #BlackLivesMatter. Forever and always 💙
The fact that you’ve said nothing about George Floyd or current protests speaks volumes. There would be no Pride if black and poc queer individuals did not fight back against police brutality.
Sorry trf but you messed up when you tried to virtue signal. Now you're in trouble for not virtue signling hard enough and about the wrong thing. Should have just stuck to promoting a fun an awesome ren faire. Good luck trying to appease everyone. You in a lose lose situation now it seems.
Thank you for supporting the LGBT+ community it’s been so wonderful the past several years as y’all have been more outspoken in supporting my community, but this year, more than ever, I think y’all also need to show your support to our black brothers and sisters and speak out! #BlackLivesMatter
Well, won't be going there.
Yes love this, Huzzah!💛💚💙💜
My fiancee and I thank you, and look forward to our wedding at your park this year
Thank you King for standing with ALL your loyal subjects!
Thank you, I at least appreciate it.
Been trying to talk ppl into going to TRF with me for years but a lot say they dont go because it's racist. I always defend TRF saying it isn't. But now I see I was wrong to defend TRF. So sad.
#MRRA (Make Renaissance Renaissance Again)
maybe TODAY is NOT the day for this, of all days
Love this!! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
Love you guys for this!
Cultural Appropriation. Does anyone actually know of the history of Edward II of England?
all the LGBTQ+ people at TRF are one reason I like to go.
Catch me at the rock wall this year 🤘
Or you could not make the festival a political statement.
Just as LGBTQ 🏳️🌈 people are born this way, so are Black people..You can’t support one without the other but 👌🏾 okay🤷🏾♀️
Thank you ♡ Cliff Camacho look!
Would any other year but this year yall need to take a back seat #BLM
While I am happy to see your support for the LGBTQ+ community,
Silence is Violence.
Black Lives Matter, and your support is needed.
The world does not revolve around black people especially the black losers moochin movement
