Jason Mraz Has Worn Many Hats — San Diego Surfer Dude, Pop Music’s Mr. Sunshine, And One Great Pickle Boy At The Minnesota Renaissance Festival– 1996 Or ’97, He Thinks. One College Friends Persuaded Him To Hang Out In Chaska And Shakopee One Summer And Perform At The Renaissance Festival. “One Of My Friends Is A Veteran Pickle Boy; He’d Probably Done It A Dozen Years.

Who Grew Up In Virginia And Attended A Music And Drama College In New York City. “It Was A Blast. It Was Extraordinary, Such An Immersive Experience. You Really Get To Go To A Different Time.”
