What are the requirements of being a cast or crew member and how do I sign up?
We are currently seeking only gypsies, pirates and fantasy characters for our cast. All cast members must have their own costuming. Costuming does not have to be one hundred percent historically accurate - but we ask that attire is believable to have come from the renaissance era from head to toe. Low quality "costume-in-a-bag" Halloween costumes are NOT  acceptable. We will not provide cast and crew members with costuming.

Cast members under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

No experience is necessary!

How much is parking?
Parking is free. There are also designated areas for motor homes. Our staff will be happy to direct you to the appropriate area.

If I wear a costume can I get in free?

Is this a pet-friendly faire?
Only service animals and performance animals are allowed on the fair grounds.

What era should my costume be from?
The 15th - 17th century. Viking and medieval garb is welcome and it's not uncommon to see patrons in Steampunk and science fiction costumes as well!

Are there any additional costs besides the entry fee?

Is this a family friendly event?
Yes! Very!

Do you host birthday parties?
We do not currently have birthday party specials available, but our faire is very ideal for a birthday outing for all ages!

Can we bring in food & drinks? How about for our infant/small child?
Outside food and drinks are not allowed inside the Faire; however you may bring in food for infants and small children. 

Will there be alcohol sales?

Do the vendors accept credit cards and/or checks?
Even though the booths are run by independent merchants who themselves may choose what forms of payment they wish to accept, we highly recommend that you bring cash.

Can we bring our own wheelchairs/wagons/strollers?
Yes, this is acceptable.

Can I rent a costume?
There is a possibility that there will be a costume rental booth set up by an independent vendor; however, we cannot guarantee this.

What is the Weapons Policy?
We do not allow concealed weapons on Faire grounds. Any swords, rapiers, edged or pointed, etc. that are worn as a part of your costume MUST BE SHEATHED AND PEACE TIED. You can secure them with leather straps or zip ties. No unsecured weapons will be allowed into the Faire site.
