The 1st Annual Appalachian Renaissance Faire was a resounding success! Thanks to all our wonderful Patrons who visited the Duchy of Appalachia, as well as the marvelous Vendors and exceptionally talented Entertainers who all contributed to ARF's Inaugural success. We hope you will plan to visit us again next October. In the meantime, please enjoy these magically captured scenes from this year's Faire. Huzzah!
OUR STORYLINE: Takes place deep in Appalachia, where 81,000 Scottish lowlanders and some English migrated to Ulster, Ireland for the opportunity to reestablish themselves and their families in a new land. Serving a major role in the American Revolution, these Celtic men and women dug in and held tight as libertarians of the New World, weaving a rich history of rebels, patriots and tradition. In typical RenFaire tradition, ARF will weave a historical fiction; ours is unique in that it is based on the strong roots established by the Scots-Irish, which still hold the mountains today.
