Renaissance Festival Not Moving South
Thursday, April 02, 2015  From the Chesapeake Current

Following strong opposition from local residents, organizers of the Maryland Renaissance Festival have decided to remain in Crownsville rather than moving to a site off MD Rt. 4 at Bristol in southern Anne Arundel County.

The festival owners had a period of time to appeal the county’s Board of Appeals’ decision in December that denied their variance request and they did not do that. They had sought to move to a 238-acre tract of farmland just southwest Wayson’s Corner/Lothian off the Rt. 4 Bristol exit. The board ruled that the festival failed to meet other criteria of AA County law, and that it would change the character of the neighborhood.

Rick Price, vice president of Bristol Civic Association told the Chesapeake Current, “I’m glad to hear that they dropped it, glad Bristol and the surrounding people actually won one again and stopped the influx. The bigger problem is because Anne Arundel County created this situation – those big, juicy pieces of land that are left are in south county. So we’re always a target for development. It’s unfortunate… and the Renaisssance Festival just did not fit the character of the neighborhood and I’m glad that was brought out.”

The Renaissance Festival could seek to operate in a residential-agricultural zone similar to South County. But first zoning officials must approve a special exception to determine if plans meet county standards.

Local residents turned out in force at public meetings last year to oppose the festival move, citing concerns about traffic, possible congestion, access to and from Route 4, along with community disturbance and that it could be a detriment to public welfare in the rural area.

The Renaissance Festival operates 11 weekends in the fall, beginning the last weekend of August. Each year, the Maryland Fair attracts about 300,000 people during its 19 days of operation.
