Utah Midsummer Renn. Faire
July 11th-15th, 2017
My Lords and Ladies;
It is my pleasure to remind all that the Utah Midsummer Renaissance Faire soon approaches. This year the faire is from July 12th to July 15 in Cedar City Utah. Setup for Faire is July 11th beginning at 12pm (noon) Utah time. Takedown is Saturday night (the 13th from 8pm to Midnight).
For those of you who have never come to the Cedar Faire, it has been the premiere faire in Southern Utah for over 30 years and is a quiet, relaxing faire located in the cool shade of Cedar City, Utah. The Utah Shakespearean festival is also in full swing during faire time and in years past members of the encampment have enjoyed a night at the theater. It’s like taking a vacation AND coming to Faire at the same time!
The 2017 plays being performed during fair this year are: Shakespear in Love, Romeo and Juliet, As You Like It, Guys and Dolls, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, and Treasure Island.
Local Amenities are: (Directly across the street) Lynn’s Groceries, Lonny Boys BBQ (Formerly Sonny Boys - and a Best in state Winner 5 years running), The Chinese Buffet, Little Cesars Pizza, and Hermies Burger Stop.
In concordance with Utah state law, it will be a dry encampment. Schedule is subject to change as needed. All times are local Utah time.
