Vino is one of our banner bearers in the daily festival parade. He can also be seen helping out where ever needed. He's the proud husband of Jaclyn "Fantail" Palumbo (another Brigadoon parade walker and part time beer maid) and step-father to her daughter Autumn. Vince first attended the Texas Renaissance Festival in 1990. He and Jaclyn began attending on a regular basis in 2016 to support their daughter Autumn, who had been working a festival booth since she was 14.
Vino is a former teacher, professional musician, hobby mechanic and full time tech geek. He traded in his musician touring spurs in 2008 to take a full time job in the
IT field. He enjoys craft beer, working on classic cars, hot rods, and motorcycles. He and Jackie also enjoy camping, ocean cruises and beach weekends. On occasion, Vino will also dust off his saxophone and/or keyboard to join local musicians and former band mates on stage.
