Crafts – It is the intention of the Faire to have the best handmade crafts, artisans, and merchants. All items displayed and sold must receive the approval of our Jury Committee. Photos should be sent to the above-noted address. All work must be handcrafted by you and of your own design. Any items or portions not of your design or work should be noted. Crafts should complement and blend with our 16th-century theme.
Games, Rides & Activities – Presentation and context of your game, ride or activity should relate to the 16th-century in a manner that evokes the theme of our event. Games should be exciting and most of all, FUN! Please describe your ride, game or activity in detail. Feel free to include links to videos of your activity in action.
Upon Acceptance – Attendance at a one-day stakeout session is mandatory for all new vendors. Important event information will be provided and you will be shown your booth space. Plan to spend the day! Stakeout is typically one month prior to Opening Day. If accepted, a notification will be sent in December. All new vendors and new workers are required to attend three basic workshops provided by the Faire. The workshops will include Orientation, Costuming, and Elizabethan Language.
Costuming – All vendors and their employees/volunteers are required to wear costumes appropriate to guidelines of 16th century England. Costuming information is available here: renfair.com/socal/join-us/costume-guide. Costumes may be purchased pre-Faire from our community of Faire clothiers, or vendors may sew or buy their own garments.
