The Maryland Renaissance Festival Opens Tomorrow

The Maryland Renaissance Festival 2014

The Maryland Renaissance Festival opens tomorrow, August 23, 2014, and runs weekends through October 19. There’s talk about them moving to another site in the future, so don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a day in another era without leaving Anne Arundel County.

Just to get you in the mood, here are some photos I took at the Maryland Renaissance Festival a few years ago.

Check out the Maryland Renaissance Festival website for details about their packed-full schedule of performances, costume rentals (not required, but fun to do), information about parking and handicap access, tickets, etc., etc., etc. LOTS of fun for everyone!

P.S. If you find yourself in a lot of traffic on Defense Highway (Rt. 450) between Crofton and Annapolis Mall, be patient… those unexpected cars are probably headed to The Maryland Renaissance Festival, located at 1821 Crownsville Rd., Annapolis, MD 21401

Calling all Teens, Ages 11-18

Crofton Library 2011The Anne Arundel County Library invites teens ages 11 to 18 to submit their artwork for a chance to grace the cover of this year’s Fall issue of Library Happenings. We’re always amazed at the talent shown by our local teen artists!

This is just a short snippet from the article titled Library Hosts 4th Annual Teen Cover Contest on the Anne Arundel County Library website. There’s no chance I could describe it any better, so click on the link and check it out.

Entries can be dropped of at the Crofton Library or any A.A. County Library location during the month of March, or emailed to [email protected] Wouldn’t it be nice to have the winner be one of our own talented Crofton area teens?

Annapolis Restaurant Week – Through March 2

Annapolis Restaurant Week – February 24-March 2, 2014

ServerCheck out the list of dining establishments that are participating in Annapolis Restaurant Week, and make plans to dine at one of the many restaurants you’ve never tried before – or maybe even an old favorite that you haven’t visited in a while.

More than three dozen restaurants in and around Annapolis are offering three-course, price fixed meal selections at a cost of $15.95 for lunch and $32.95 for dinner. Two newer Annapolis restaurants, the Metropolitan Kitchen & Lounge and Miss Shirley’s Café, also offer a two-course breakfast for $12.95.

There’s plenty of parking at the City’s four parking garages – Knighton, Park Place, Gott’s Court and Hillman – and you can hop aboard the City Circulator trolley to get around the city.  The circulator makes a 2.1 mile loop between West Gate Circle and the City Dock, with 15 designated stops (including the parking garages). It will also stop for passengers who wave them down along the central business district loop.

A few Annapolis restaurants have menu prices that exceed my usual dining out budget, and this seems like the perfect time to give them a try!

New Year’s Eve Annapolis – 2014

New Year’s Eve Annapolis – 2014

If you’ve never been to Annapolis, Maryland, for New Year’s Eve, mark it on your calendar for this year. The celebration begins at 3 p.m. with Town Crier John Squire Frederick leading the Annapolis Drum and Bugle Corps from the Market House to the Big Tent at Susan Campbell Park.  The tent will be heated, but you’ll still want to dress appropriately for the weather outside.

fireworksChesapeake Children’s Museum will be open from 3 – 7 p.m. for kids’ activities, and Laura Renee Davis will be face-painting. Then, at 4:30, look for The Magical Worlds of Jack Julius.  From 5:30-6:40, join the GOOMBAY “Caribbean Experience”  for a Limbo Contest. Meanwhile, most businesses and restaurants in the city will be open and many will feature special offers.  D.J. Scott Hymes will start the music at 7 p.m. and Radio City will perform yesterday’s and today’s top hits for dancing, beginning at 10 p.m.  As you can see from this busy schedule of events, there’s something for everyone!

The best part may be the FIREWORKS, and you don’t have to wait until midnight to see them. There will be fireworks at 7:30 p.m. AND again at midnight.  (Many thanks to the local sponsors listed on the website.) The best viewing areas for fireworks will be at Susan Campbell Park and Main Street. Other suggested areas include public spaces northeast of the Severn River, any of the street-end parks facing Spa Creek and aboard a boat in the city harbor.

Restaurants and business will be open throughout the city on New Year’s Eve, and it might be a good idea to call ahead to find out if your favorite restaurant will take reservations. You can park in one of the city parking garages and ride the Circulator bus FREE right into the heart of the New Year’s Eve fun. Just ring the bell to stop and get off anywhere!

* Amount shown is daily maximum.  The regular hourly rate will apply.

Happy New Year, Crofton!


Closer to home, there will be a New Year’s Eve party at Crofton Country Club.  Did you know that a social membership is just $65/month, including use of the pool all summer?  Join the club this week for 2014, and attend the New Year’s Eve celebration closer to home. Email Membership Director Pat Klug at [email protected] for more information.
