Regardless of your specialty, the following information in this Guidebooke will help you to meet Shrewsbury Renaissance Faire standards for costuming, booths, and all areas of Elizabethan deportment.
WHO CAN APPLY TO PARTICIPATE?
Professional crafters, artists, performers, living history guilds, volunteers, and aspiring beginners welcome.
HOW IT ALL WORKS
No jury fee or percentage taken. Elizabethan relevance is preferred. Demonstrations
are encouraged. Appropriate costume is required. Applications are juried upon receipt, and notification sent by post within 48 hours. Early submissions are recommended to avoid product saturation. Some Production Guilds open for volunteers. For more information, refer to the Villager Guidebooke.
