Fantasy Faire Closing Party Today But That’s Not The End Of The Event

Dawn's Promise Overview

Fantasy Faire 2017 hosts a six hour closing party today, from 1pm to 7pm SLT, but the word on the streets of the Fairelands is that this party does not mark the end of this year’s Fantasy Faire.

Zander Greene

Via means of nods, winks, secret messages and most importantly of all, an inworld notecard, I can reveal non-exclusively, that this year’s Fantasy Fare 2017 will be open until Thursday May 4th.

Fenn MacMoragh

The notecard states :

From Her High Faireness: “It’s not a typo! The Fairelands will be open for shopping, hunting, exploring, picture taking, and spontaneous partying through May 4th! Spread the news, even though our planned programming is ending with a six hour closing party on Monday, May 1 from 1-7pm SLT, there is no reason to be sad because we have the Fairelands to roam around until THURSDAY!”

Whereas there won’t be any official events going on, this means that you still have time to visit the wonderful builds for this year’s event.

What’s That Coming Over The Hill?

Art and Entertainment

The day had started in a rather odd fashion, I had awoken in the beautifully scenic setting of Dawn’s Promise to find a mysterious note on my bedside table that simply said “Tolkien Day“.

Foxes

Somewhat puzzled I wandered outside and found some foxes, keeping a close eye on them, the largest one sniffed me and said “Dwarfins now, Elves, Wizards, Hobbits, Humans, what is going on?”

More than a tad alarmed and wondering how much mead I had actually drunk last night if talking foxes were on the scene I shrugged my shoulders.

“Tolkien Day” implored the fox.

Fantasy Faire 2017 – Survivors and Caregivers Centre

Outside Survivors & Caregivers Centre

I would like to take a small brief pause away from the magnificent and magical fantastical world of Fantasy Faire 2017 to point people in the direction of The Survivors and Caregivers Centre in Kakushi Pasu.

The centre is a quiet, but important part of Fantasy Faire where you can find some information about Relay For Life’s support network for cancer survivors and caregivers.

Fantasy Faire 2017 – An Unexpected Find

Tolkien Day Poster

I have found myself in many a perilous situation at this year’s Fantasy Faire, escaping contagions in San Mora, escaping Elves in Kakushi Pasu and escaping Inara Pey in Fairelands Junction.

Feasting

I have done far too much escaping and not enough finding, especially the finding of mead. Today I embarked on an epic adventure that took me to The Hill.

Fireworks

The Hill is the sort of peaceful, scenic location that seems as if it would be home to Halflings, the sort of location where you could imagine thirteen Dwarves and a Wizard entering the home of an unexpectant Halfling burglar to embark on an epic journey where we go there and back again, well some of us get back anyway.

This is also a place where you might find fireworks, food for a feast, and more importantly, mead.
