Renaissance Faire v. Folsom Street Fair

At yesterday’s bbq, the question kept popping up: Are you planning to go to Ren Faire or Folsom Street Fair on Sunday? My question was: How different are the two events? My conclusion: not very.
Let’s explore:

Ren Faire

  • Leather
  • Corsets
  • Slops
  • Chain mail bikinis that DO NOT BELONG
  • Awful British accents
  • Swords
  • One queen
  • Vastly overpriced food and beer
  • The Danse Macabre
  • Hot dusty avenues
  • Jousting
  • Ponies
  • Knights
Folsom

  • More Leather
  • Corsets
  • Chaps
  • Chain mail bikinis
  • Generally free of awful British accents
  • Paddles
  • Many queens
  • Vastly overpriced food and Miller
  • The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence
  • Hot filthy street
  • Flogging
  • Ponies
  • Bears

    Ha! Very solid list. So true. I have worked a booth at the Folsom fair for years and once you get over the street BJ’s, it’s pretty much all kink geekery.

    Sounds like Folsom is better although I hope they have other beer besides crappy Miller. At least at renfest you can get a Guinness. :P

    • Sadly, Miller is one of the sponsors, so that’s pretty much it. At least, it has been in previous years.
