Meet The Team
Been member of Sca since 1989 and have vended at events since 1993. Built armor for 8yrs and sold it. Began blacksmithing in 2011 and started doing small local events and rien fairs as a blacksmith.
In 2020 got health problems that prevented me from doing as much physical things so gave my knowledge to help with organizing and further growth of fair and was made president of board in fall of 2022.
Steve has 45 plus years’ experience in management of full-service destination Resorts. His vast experience has taken him to several highly recognizable resort areas including French Lick, Indiana, Park City, Utah and Williamsburg, Virginia. His resort adventures and Scotland heritage has introduced him to indulging in Renaissance festivals (Ah, rubbing shoulders with King’s). Along with his excellent management skills, he possesses a unique expertise in projecting realistic financial numbers for the success of a Resort and Renaissance festival. When he is not glued to watching daily financial results you can find him preparing a castle, wielding a kilt or driving a tractor with a wagon load of animal lovers through a safari wildlife park.
A few years ago my sister talked me into 'dressing up' in Renaissance garb and attending a local festival. It was downhill from there! Now I have multiple outfits, including quite a few kilts and attend as many festivals as possible and even going on The Ren Cruise with a bunch of Rennies! Which led to assisting with organizing festivals, which led to our own festival. The rest will become history with our new castle location in Southern Indiana!
A published poet, crafter and artist, I have lived in Indiana most of my life and new to the Renaissance life! I look forward to being able to facilitate events and helping patrons have a wonderful fun filled time!
From a very young age Halloween was one of my favorite times of the year. It presented an opportunity to become a character other than myself. After the first time at a Renaissance Faire the possibilities became endless. Every day of Faire becomes another character selection from the many costumes that have been purchased or created on my own! Visiting other Faires is an amazing experience to view endless characters, costumes, and meet great friends. The only thing as much fun as a Faire is doing The Ren Cruise with a hundred or more Renaissance friends and entertainers! See you at The Faire!
I began going to colonial era living history events with Angie in 1994, it brought together a lot of my interests in one place: woods lore, history, and crafting (which would eventually become blacksmithing). In 1997 a friend taught me to make my first knife. Since then, I’ve studied, learned, worked, and did plenty of hard figuring to forge a variety of products. Some of which is in museums and historic sites. I’ve demonstrated at many events, and I’ve found the ren faire events has allowed me to be more creative and to expand my knowledge into avenues I haven’t been able to explore until now.
I have had a lifetime love of history. After I met Mick, we discovered living history and spent many happy years participating colonial era events with our son. I have expanded my interest to Regency and the early twentieth century with my sisters, and you can usually hear us long before we are ever seen. I’m new to ren faire, but so far have found it intriguing, colorful, and creative.
