Announcing: the June Faire Artisans’ Village

Come meet the artisans and craftspeople of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Nearly forty good people will be demonstrating historical arts and sciences at June Faire!

They are passionate in their chosen fields and have done incredible amounts of research, study, and practice to be able to create the works of art they do.

Where to See Them

The Artisans will be located in two general areas this year: inside the VanZee Building and on the North side of the Marketplace (near the Minstrel’s Stage). Make sure to walk through both areas and watch them in action. Ask questions!

You might discover the love of the arts and sciences yourself and want to join in the fun. And you would be most welcome to come join us!
