As Renaissance festival opens, its future fiefdom is unclear



With a burst of cannon fire and cheers of “Hip! Hip! Huzzah!” on Saturday morning, the denizens of the wooded hamlet of Revel Grove welcomed King Henry VIII for his 30th annual visit.

But it’s unclear how much longer the king will be traveling to Revel Grove, nestled in the Anne Arundel County suburb of Crownsville, where his visit is celebrated with costumed revelers, musical and theater acts, vendors selling period clothes and gifts and enough meat pies and goblets of mead to nourish them all.

Since 1985, the Maryland Renaissance Festival has celebrated life in a simpler time on a 130-acre property in the center of the county.
