Volunteers Needed!

Many hands make light work!

It takes many volunteers to make June Faire run smoothly, from people who donate their time in the planning and preparation stage to people who help for a few hours during the event. Please consider volunteering to help us! Among other roles, we need a volunteer coordinator — contact our fearless leaders at jfchair@dragonslaire.org .

The Barony of Glymm Mere is coordinating Gate volunteers.

The founders of the Pride Garb Challenge want to see it grow and have encouraged the populace at large. The organizers of the garb display at June Faire have decided to showcase Pride garb this year and are requesting items to display along with dress forms. If you would like to display your Pride garb at June Faire, please contact HL Jessie Gateman, and she will put you in touch with the people running it.

This is just the first part of our summer of Dragon’s Laire Newcomers’ welcome activities! After June Faire, join us on Tuesday, June 18th, for our Annual Newcomers’ Night. Then we’ll have a series of newcomer-friendly classes at our Tuesday night socials in July–August.

SCA members are invited to give a demo at Newcomer’s Night, teach a class at Social, and bring your SCA-related items to sell (or give away) at the swap meet.

Accessibility Information


There are two sets of public bathrooms with accessible stalls. One on the main event level on the east side between the barns and youth activities, and the second at the base of the path to Boand arena on the north side.

Accessible port-a-potties and hand-washing stations are throughout the site.

Golf Carts

Golf carts with mapped stops and some sort of seating will be distributed without the site and those who need to be delivered to an on-site location rather than a stop will be able to do so.

Mobility access

The main event site paths are paved but there are three slopes around the site.

The first, is a relatively short hill between the camping and the main level of the site; this is not paved, although it is generally well-packed.

The second is to the Boand arena; there is a paved path from the upper level down, and it is slightly steep.

The third is a relatively steep hill leading to the Gate for moderns and the Pavilion parking. There is a paved path with a gentle slope from the food-truck square down to the parking.

Quiet Space

The ‘Chillvillion’ will be available for a quiet space with fidgets and seating. Signage pointing to it will be throughout the event, and it will be located on the site map.


Designated parking will be available in both Gordon Field Parking (SCA Camping and daytrip until full) as well as the Pavillion Parking Lot (SCA and Modern attendees)

Service Animals

Service animals are allowed in all public spaces, including the President’s Hall.


Pets are allowed on the grounds but NOT in the President’s Hall. They must be appropriately leashed at all times, and you are responsible for picking up their poop. Poop bag and trash can stations are scattered throughout the grounds.
