Their Excellencies Cedric Wlfraven and Brighid Ross, and the people of Dragon's Laire, invite you to join Them in celebrating June Faire's Silver Anniversary. The 25th Anniversary shall feature the 'Champion of June Faire Prize Tournament' in both heavy armor and rapier, as well as archery, thrown weapons and equestrian activities. The Marketplace will be grand and glorious! Bards and period entertainment will abound. The Arts and Sciences Community will put on a grand showing.
This is our annual Demo to the public; please show off your best for the Moderns who attend.
Volunteers are URGENTLY needed to help support June Faire activities. It does not matter how little you think you know, we can use your help.

Come one, come all to shop in the finest Medieval Marketplace this area has to offer. Skilled artisans come from far and wide to show and sell their finest wares at this event. This year we have three separate marketplaces. Atop the hill you will feel like you have just stepped back into time as you shop amidst period pavilions with the fighting fields and clank of armor just a stone’s throw away. Down the hill you will find food vendors galore and additional merchants scattered throughout. To make your shopping experience complete, a third marketplace (near the Post Office) will be filled to the brim with the Food Court and even more merchants. If you have been waiting to find that perfect trim, garb that fits, armour, swords, castle décor or accessories suitable for your persona, plus much, much more, this is the event you do not want to miss for all your medieval shopping needs!
