CANCELLED

Greetings unto Mighty An Tir, Greatest Kingdom in the Known World!

With sorrow in our hearts, we announce that June Faire 2020 has been cancelled.

June Faire is our largest and busiest event and public demo. Our 2020 core Event Team is almost 30 members and that does not include the scores of volunteers who assist at gate; behind the scenes with layout, camping, trash, and tear down; and conduct demonstrations for arts & sciences as well as the many martial activities.

As COVID-19 progresses through our region, disrupting both our modern lives and our Dream, we felt it necessary to cancel. Even if the risk of such a large gathering were deemed minute, the recovery from these months will take time. We want to plan our largest event with joy and excitement, not with the pressure and stress of a potential cancellation and at increasing cost. We want our Populace, Friends, and Neighbors to be safe and healthy, to recover and recuperate, and to be excited when it is once again time to plan our June Faire.

Dragon’s Laire does not plan to reschedule June Faire for later in the 2020 event season, we will return in June, 2021!

For those who have pre-registered, thank you! If you pre-registered using PayPal, they will not be processed.  If you sent in a check, we will mail it back or shred it. If you are a Merchant, Master Arion asks that you please check your email.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at DragonsLaire.Seneschal@antir.org

Our amazing Merchants have been encouraged to join the An Tir Virtual Marketplace. If you’re over in the Kitsap area, please consider getting takeout from our fantastic Food Merchants! Check out the lists below!

Site tokens and Wrist bands

As June Faire is both an SCA event and a public demo, safety is a key concern! Please wear your site token at all times unless it would be a danger, such as on the war field.

Youth are required to wear wrist bands. There are two colors, one for SCA participant and one for modern spectators. SCA participants are asked to write the guardian name, contact number, and encampment. In case of emergency this allows the event staff or emergency services to more easily make contact.

Companion animals will also be issued a wristband which will have the Owner’s name, number, and encampment. Every one fondly remembers the cries of “HOLD!” on the An Tir/West War Field as a canine companion sprinted through the middle.

 

June Faire is HOST to the Kitsap Medieval Faire demo, please share with all your Modern friends and Family!
