Past Times Renaissance Faire at Alba Vineyard **UPDATED**Event date: June 22nd, 2002 - June 23rd, 2002
Hosted by Barony of Settmour Swamp - Milford, NJ
 
Event details
Come one, come all to the first annual Medieval and Renaissance Faire, hosted by Alba Vineyard and sponsored by the Barony of Settmour Swamp.  The vineyard, NJ’s largest premium winery, produces internationally award winning wines, and hosts a variety of special events and festivals throughout the year.  The focus of this event/ public demo is to create a festive and educational experience for people of all ages with historical authenticity in an entertaining and interesting context.

We are planning to have music, dancing, actors, singers, merchants, games of skill, fighting, fencing, thrown weapons, archery, and period encampments with A&S displays and demos.  There will be food vendors (maybe a pig roast) and a “tavern” featuring the wines of Alba Vineyard.  There will be a brewing contest judged by the vineyard owners.  Register your entries upon arrival and try for a really nifty prize to be awarded by the winery.  No other alcohol will be allowed on the faire grounds.

Gate fees are $6 adults, $3 children under 14 and free under 6, each day.  Merchant fee is $60 for the weekend or $40 with 2 demos per day.  Please contact the coordinator below for more details and information packages.  Deadline for a listing in the program is May 15th.  The faire will be open to the public from 10-6 each day.  Set will be from 4pm Friday, and checkout by 10 am Monday.  Overnight camping is available for merchants, entertainers and volunteers by pre-registration only. 

So come join us for the weekend.  Don your festive garb.  Sample delicious wines, sell your wares, sing and dance, play a game, demonstrate your skills, chase a wench, catch a rogue.  Be a part of the fun.

Site Opens: The faire will be open to the public from 10-6 each day.  Set will be from 4pm Friday, and checkout by 10 am Monday.  Overnight camping is available for merchants, entertainers and volunteers by pre-registration only.

Directions:
From Rt.  78 in NJ – Go West to exit 7.  Make a right at the end of the ramp onto 173West.  Go past the T/A truck stop (on the right) * Go about half a mile to a fork in the road.  Take the left fork onto Rt.  639 towards Warren Glen and Reiglesville (large green road sign here).  Continue a few miles to a stop sign.  Go straight onto Rt.  519 for about 1 block and stay straight onto Rt.  627.  Follow Rt.  627, with the river always on your left – don’t cross it – for about 2-3 miles.  At a point where the speed limit picks up to 50 mph, there is a straight stretch of road followed by a drop to 35 mph on a sharp curve to the left.  The Vineyard is 100 yards past that curve (there’s a sign that says so ) on the right.
From 78 in PA – Go East to exit 6.  Turn right at the end of the ramp.  Go a short distance to a “T” intersection and turn right again onto Rt.  173 West.  Follow from * above.
If these directions don’t work for you call the autocrat.
