A Gathering of Rogues & Ruffians
- A Renaissance Faire

Performers & Such

Interested in joining us as a performer?  Whether you are new to performing at a Faire or a grizzled veteran we are eager to meet you and discuss how you would fit into our faire.  We are an outside 2 day event, the second weekend of October. What a great way to end your outdoor season!   Passing the hat is acceptable and encouraged.  We do offer a very simple lunch to all non-paid performers and volunteers. Camping on-site Friday, Saturday & Sunday night is available. We offer 3 stages as an opportunity for you to perform.  We also welcome wandering or street performers.
