About Sherwood Forest Faire
Sherwood Forest Faire sits outside McDade, Texas near Austin in the center of the state. This year, the faire runs from March 3-April 22 taking advantage of springtime weather. Sherwood’s beautifully wooded grounds have featured acts like Wine and Alchemy and Saxon Moon in the past. The faire has grown rapidly and has been centered around the renaissance festival community from the start. Go frolic in the forest with them!
Sherwood Forest Faire centers on the story of Robin Hood making for a pleasant change from the other Texas Faires that are centered on Henry VIII and his gazillion wives. The Robin Hood era is Mideval rather than Renaissance so many of the cast’s costumes are from an earlier time. However, the most of the patrons wear regular garb from other faires.
Sherwood Forest Faire has a great clan camping scene. Faire clans band together to become a faire family at the festival. Sherwood has two areas of camping, general and clan camping. In general camping, anybody can pick a spot to camp. In clan camping, large spaces are reserved for use for specific clans. To camp in a clan spot, you need permission from that clan. Even if you don’t have a clan, take a stroll through the camp after the faire closes to explore clan camping. I bet you’ll make some friends.
