Hear Ye, Hear Ye….a Tour of the Old Faire Site and Celebration this Sunday!!-Doff thy hats and bring sunscreen!

 

It's time to buy your Topanga Canyon Banjo and Fiddle Contest 57th Annual ticket and look for the Green man this year at their designated area ….look for the banners and costumed folk for the time of your life.  Workshops, stage, walkabout, May Pole…be ready for pictures, stories, arts, and ingenuity.

 

Buy your TBFC Annual Ticket and find the Green Man and hear about the living past, the theater arts, the innovations, the stands, the hawkers and the crafts.

 

It's not a wrap, it's a celebration and renewal for Spring/Summer fun!

 

Doug Jacobson "In 1963, from a small field on Haskels Rascals Ranch in Los Angeles, an event known as the "Renaissance Pleasure Faire" was born as a class project by a history teacher.  From a school yard fundraiser, Ron and Phyllis Patterson took a weekend event and turned it into a worldwide phenomenon. " (Doug Jacobson of J2F Productions,)

 

Queen Peg Long and a history of Elizabeths, Scott Beach and a long line of Mayors, Billy Scudder….alive as our Green Man, irreplaceable…..Judy Kory…teaching Mayor's Wife and wenching or language and expressive arts wizardy…..Sandy of Cock and Feathers  and so many other Fools, Fiends and Fine Friends showing off for the day and sharing their respect, love, and craft.

 

Do not miss it…this re-sprouting of what was planted years ago under these California Oaks on pathways and routes along the property, faire shire, now marriages, children, grandchildren, and legacies.

 

This is an extra special event added on to your ticket should you meander across to the designated area.  Be ready to awaken your imagination, delve into Elizabethan phrasing, experience living history, and celebrate the history teacher that launched a "counter cultural" initiative of commerce, conversation, musical arts and theatrical performance, jongleurs, troubadours, minnesingers, minstrels, (jugglers, singers, songwriters, performers) and so much more.  Come and partake.  Be warned …you might giggle and wonder.
