They did a fundraiser last October for the fire victims of the last fires that swept through around them. Tuscan Village was a part of the community that gave back to those that lost so much in the previous fires. 

 

Now it is our turn to help give back to help them. 

 

On the site were 3 homes, sandwich shop, used book store, tasting room, and a beautiful little chapel with an organ among other buildings as well that are just piles of ash.

For the last 8 years every Memorial Weekend, the site has hosted Lake Renaissance Festival

 

With only given about 10 minutes to grab what they could and escape the flames, Tom & Lisa Wilsey who run the festival and so much more, evacuated leaving a lifetime of memories behind. 

 

If you have the means available to help, please visit Tom & Lisa’s GoFundMe campaign to help them with the loss. 

 

We hope that from the ashes, the Tuscan Village will rise again and be home to Lake Ren Fest and so many other festivals once again.
