I'm looking into a castle I heard was Harveysburg, Ohio... but I don't know much about it. I'll be traveling there in June to check it out, and will send more info then. I've attached the only picture I could get my hands on. I think it looks great!

The picture of this castle on your website looks great but there is a problem. This is NOT a castle. Having been to this festival I can tell you that this castle is nothing more than a wooden front made to look like a castle. It is where you pay to enter the festival. Once you get inside it is nothing but open field with small booths set up as shops.

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

I stumbled on your website as I was looking for Renaissance Festival pictures. I must admit that the "castle" picture for the Ohio Renaissance Festival is a good one, as I work at the festival, and see it in less glory every day. I was amused by the additional e-mail that made it seem like the structure is only there to sell tickets. It was actually built a few years ago, not as a main entrance, but as an attraction. It is titled the "Dungeon of Doom" because it houses torture devices used during the Elizabethan time period, and as you walk through, you learn a bit more about infamous prisoners housed in the Tower of London during Elizabeth's time. I just wanted to clarify the actual purpose of the photograph. :)
