For those seeking part time work or a fun volunteer position, the faire has
many opportunities within the variety of vendors that sell their wares in
our Marketplace. Whether it's a gaming booth such as Archery or Axe Throw,
or a food booth selling turkey legs or ice cream or an artisan booth
selling their hand crafted jewelry, clothing, or leather goods to name
just a few, our vendors are always looking for good help. Marketplace is
the foundation of the faire and the business of selling these wares is a
major part of our festive and entertaining atmosphere. All the world is
a stage at faire so Marketplace workers participate in the recreation of
an Elizabethan Market faire with their costuming and language and customer
interaction, just like the actors.
When, Where and How to Apply
Interested applicants should come to the faire site weekend days starting August 24th, 2013. Applicants may speak with a variety of
booth owners to find a suitable placement. The terms of paid employment or
volunteer work vary with each booth owner. There are many different options
that can be negotiated for participation. All workers must adhere to the general
Rules of Play and costume guidelines provided by Play Faire management during workshops.
These rules and guidelines are enforced throughout the run of faire and are
considered a condition of employment or volunteer status.
The Rules of Play
Workshop should be attended by all new marketplace workers and will explain
the costume guidelines and general information. Depending upon the booth,
the owner may request or require applicants to attend other available
workshops. The workshops are free, casual and roughly one hour long.
We are not accepting new vendor or catering applications at this time.
This show is a vendor owned faire and is currently not open to new applicants.
