The event starts on an empty field and must leave one in two hours. Many hands make this easier on tired staff and crew.


Our all volunteer Renaissance Faire raises money for charity - this year for CHKD. We start the day on October 6 with an empty field, just some locations marked out on the grass. By the end of the day, we have to put up a dozen tents and hundreds of feet of fence posts and perimeter lines, tiki posts, signs, tables, chairs and bins of items used to operate the event through October 9. On October 9, Sunday evening, it all has to get packed and ready for removal in just 2 hours! So we need help October 6 all day and October 9 from 3pm to 5pm. Tents 10x10 pop-up to 20x30 festivas, installing wood and steel fence posts, etc.
