The fourth annual Texarkana Renaissance Faire will be held Sept. 26-27, 2015 at the Four States Fairgrounds in Texarkana, Ark. One of the event coordinators Laura Hutton says, "As always, our goal is to continue to make the faire bigger and better by adding more merchants, food vendors, games and activities and entertainment. Your donations will fund: payment, lodging and other accommodations for entertainment, staff, decor, advertising and marketing, rental fees and the many other expenses necessary to ensure the improvement of the 2015 Faire."
