After 2020 had to cancel the festival, leaving it only as a virtual online presence, great joy was had by visitors and artisans throughout the carefully reopened fair. Ye Olde Gamery's Mistress Katrina and the Lady Susan await the gates to open and merry-makers to arrive. Many visitors and hosts did wear masks, especially since distancing was well-nigh impossible with the huge crowds. Hand-sanitizers were omnipresent. That the current pandemic replayed the historical plague of the 15th century did not dampen the jubilant spirits of these time-travelers.
