Recent location change of the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire causes hourlong traffic jam

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The Hoggetowne Medieval Fair recently switched locations from near the Gainesville Regional Airport to a field on Southwest Archer Road.

Gainesville residents traveling to attend the event expected a 10- to 15-minute drive but for most the drive took over an hour in standstill traffic.

The location change is being blamed for the clutter of vehicles.
