Why does TripAdvisor refuse to list the Maryland Renaissance Festival in their list of activities in Crownsville??? It is the biggest thing that happens there. It starts in late Aug & ends in late Oct. It has been running for many many years. All they listed for activities there is a golf course. This attracts many times the people each weekend when it is open, than a golf course will in a year. This is a chance for people to step back in history, & learn what life was like in that era. Both employees & many guest dress in period clothing. The food is like it was then. The shops produce things that would be on sale in that era, & you can watch them do it using the tools available in that era. The entertainment is the type that they enjoyed at that time. Why are they avoiding this valuable fest???
