Fire Hazard Alert

On October 25, 2016, the Grimes County Commissioners Court issued an order restricting outdoor burning in all unincorporated parts of Grimes County, Texas.  Patrons of the Fields of New Market Campground at the Texas Renaissance Festival may wonder how this order will apply to them.  Since the campground and the Festival are within the city limits of Todd Mission, Texas, the burn ban does not apply to our facilities.  However, in the interest of public safety, and recognizing the dry conditions that currently exist in the area, the following procedures and policies have been put into place.

  1. In keeping with current campground rules, open fires will only be allowed in enclosed, above ground containers such as BBQ pits, fire pits, barrels, chimineas, and open flame or liquid fuel heating devices. As an added precaution, we ask that fire containers be covered with a metal mesh screen to prevent accidental sparking. Absolutely no open fires will be permitted on the ground or in open ground pits.
  2. Fires should be monitored at all times. Please do not leave open fire containers unattended.
  3. Metal barrels will be placed throughout the campground for proper disposal of ashes, embers, coals, and other fire remains. Please find the one nearest to your campsite and empty your campfire container there.  Do not empty campfire containers in regular trash dumpsters.
  4. The Plantersville Volunteer Fire Department will be running regular patrols throughout the campground all weekend and water trucks will be kept on standby. Should your fire get out of control or should you see a ground fire developing, please notify campground management immediately or call TRF security at 936-727-1800.
  5. The nightly bonfires will continue as scheduled and will be closely monitored by the Fire Department.
  6. The Royal Fireworks display at the Texas Renaissance Festival will be held each evening as scheduled.

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.  The safety and security of our guests is always our highest priority.

We have been willing to work with any transportation company that can give patrons a ride to or from the festival to ensure the safety of our patrons and others. We work with the two hotels in Magnolia and La Torretta Lake Resort to offer a shuttle to and from the festival for anyone staying at those accommodations.  But what about those who drink too much but drove to the festival if they don’t have a designated driver or everyone else in their party is intoxicated? This year we are proud to announce a partnership with taxi services!  Patrons can choose to set their transportation needs in advance by contacting these partners or anyone at the information booth or security will call if requested.
