Somerset, New Jersey - February 7, 2013 - The Garden State is already stomping grounds of The Jersey Devil, as well as the originator of "disco fries", the drive-in movie theatre, and the 24-hour-diner...not to mention the home of "The Sopranos". But it's even weirder than that: It's the home of the country's most unorthodox Renaissance Faire.

You might be familiar with Renaissance Faires--the places where people dress up like knights, kings, jesters, and peasants; speak like characters from "The Hobbit", and wander about dancing to mandolin music and watching people breathe fire. Well, this event is like that, only nowhere near as normal.

The Wicked Winter Renaissance Faire, as its name implies, runs in the winter, rather than warmer months. This necessitates an indoor venue, and the event is, in fact, also the largest indoor Renaissance Faire in the world. In terms of being "wicked", the faire, while not an adult event, is ages sixteen and up. This is in sharp contrast to every other Faire in the country, most of which are not only open to all-ages, but cater specifically to families and children. And there's more - the in addition to the standard Renaissance Faire fare, like live-steel swordfighting, magicians, medieval music, and a cast of motley characters, this show is what the event's Performance Director, Matt DeBlass, calls an "unbounded faire". He says, "We start with Renaissance Faire entertainment and programming, and then go mad". Programming ranges from subcultures like Gothic and Steampunk, to carnival and vaudeville, to film and cinema, to science fiction and fantasy.

The Wicked Faire is now in its eighth year. It's expanded to a second hotel with more entertainment and experimental interactive programming, including time travel, and a virtual "museum" of oddities and surprises. It takes place in Somerset, New Jersey, at the Doubletree Hotel & Conference Center, and the Hotel Bridgewater-Somerset.

Its producers, Jeff Mach Events, are also putting on an enormous benefit for the Tesla museum on Long Island; that's The Geek Creation Show www.GeekCreationShow.com - and it will be taking place this August at the Sheraton of Parsippany, New Jersey.
