FAQ: Why is it in 2020 and not in 2019?

We've heard, and attended festivals, that were produced too fast. people say "That was a waste of my money". Even some that have been around awhile can grow smaller from one year to the next.

In Nov 2018, Eric Vigil decided to create a new festival and do it better. Mr. Vigil is the Founder and Director of the NM Renaissance Celtic Festival. New festivals take a great deal of time for logistics, planning the event, booking vendors and entertainers, and finding a sustainable location. Deposits need to be acquired. Cast and crew and fundraiseing all need to happen before you ever open the doors. A year is a minimum amount of time for an undertaking as large and complicated as a renaissance festival to prepare. Consequently, March 2020 was chosen as a reasonable timeframe to hold this new event.
