Vendors coming to Abbadia Mare Festival 2014! Sunday, Jul 13 2014 

Welcome back to reading this blog and part two of the vendors that will be at Abbadia Mare Festival ( this season which again is coming NEXT WEEKEND July 19th and 20th from 11 am to 5 pm each day at Hammond Castle Museum (

This season we have 17 merchants including one demonstrator this season!  Here are the listings:

Okay, that’s all of them!  Also forgot to mention that we will be having The Corr Thieves joining us, so do come to see their show!

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids ages 5 – 11 and kids ages 4 and under are FREE!  Parking is an additional $15 per vehicle and is located at Stage Fort Park also in Gloucester, MA, but a free shuttle service will be provided to and from the Castle!  You can buy your tickets when you arrive at the event!

Do know that as beautiful as Hammond Castle Museum is, it is NOT WHEELCHAIR OR STROLLER FRIENDLY due to the numerous stairs at this venue!

We hope to see you and your families and yes, you too can “Storm the Castle!”  HUZZAH!


Vendors for the 2013 season Friday, May 24 2013 

While we are waiting, here are some vendors that are coming this season Tuesday, Feb 26 2013 

While we are patiently waiting on July to come around (and let me tell you, if you live in the New England area this time of year, we can’t wait for the summertime!) – and also to hear back about the parking situation (trust me, we are working diligently on that!) – here are some vendors that are going to be at Abbadia Mare Festival this season for our Third Year!

More should be coming hopefully soon 😀  As soon as we get word about the parking you will be ALL in the loop!


Happy Christmas & update from last July – Holiday ideas from us to you from the vendors we had Friday, Nov 30 2012 

So, if you didn’t make it last July to Abbadia Mare Renaissance Festival, you missed a wonderful time, some new exciting acts and a few new vendors!

Hammond Castle informed us that we did double the number of attendance from the previous year (and this included the small incidents that happened and thanks to our amazingly hard working cast and crew were on top of in seconds!) and they were so happy that they invited us to come back for Year 3!  This will now be happening July 20th-21st of 2013 from 11 am to 5 pm with more details to come probably after the Holiday season!

In the meantime, here are a few ideas to get you or your loved ones this Christmas or Hanukkah (or Yule, or whatever it is you celebrate):

That’s just some ideas!  We’ll post again after the Holidays are over!  We hope you and your family have a blessed season and joy!

Have yourself an Abbadia Mare Holiday! Part ONE Friday, Dec 9 2011 

If you came to our little festival, then you know that we were cramped with many different vendors – We’d ask that you check them out this Holiday season and buy something local.  Since we had so many vendors and this post is getting really rather long, I’ll post more next week (I promise) for more vendors – and then I’ll do the final post for the Holidays on all the amazing performers we had.

Antika Nueva has some great wire jewelry, hand made soaps and this stuff called “goo” – I tell you, that stuff is just amazing! You can go to Etsy (r) and buy stuff from her store online.

CornerStone Creations has some great concrete benches/gnomes/wall art and so much more for your home or garden.

Aetas Designs    has fabric and can make you any historically designed garment – she’s also got fabulous trim too

Lost Art Chains  has some great chain maille and other items

Art Gecko Tattoos   has some great gift certificates available for those who are interested in body art (or tattoos) 🙂

Cucina Aurora who has unbelievably yummy infused olive oils and dips – plus she just came out with a NEW cookbook!  Yeah!  Great for those cooks or the chef in your family!

MoonDragon Designs has some cool wire jewelry and some home made capes – great lady too!

Parrish Relics makes jewelry for the Stars!  No really – like famous people!  Check it out!  She hand makes everything and it looks just amazing.

Oh and yes, a small tease…I have news….but I can’t share yet….heh heh heh
