Maypole Faire XXI

May 02, 2014 to May 04, 2014
Druim Doineann

Port Angeles - Clallam & Jefferson Counties, WA

Autocrat: Eriu O'Tuathail

Maypole Faire XXI is the Shire of Druim Doineann’s annual public demonstration. This is our third year running of hosting the event at the Clallam County Fairgrounds in Port Angeles. We are using the west side of the fairgrounds, so our entrance will be the yellow colored gate. (The Kiwanis put on their annual garage sale on the same Saturday, so don’t mix up the gates!)

The site opens Friday, May 2nd at 9:00 am for vendors and 10:00 am for campers. We are open to the public on Saturday, May 3rd from 10:00 – 5:00. Site closes at 2:00 pm, Sunday, May 4th.

Since this is our public demo we are looking for anyone interested in showing off a talent or other skill. Bards are encouraged to perform all day and please feel free to pass the hat! We have scheduled our Heavy Championship, a Sheep Herding demonstration, and an Equestrian demonstration to include horseback archery, spear throwing, and more! The Archery range will be open and available to all. We hope to have a Thrown Weapon range available as well as a Rapier tournament if marshals can be found. (Volunteers please contact Bjorn at druimdoinennchatelaine@gmail.com.)

The A&S pavilion is currently scheduled to provide demonstrations on Lamp Work Beading (with goods available for purchase), Period Fiber Dying, Chainmail Construction, Storytelling, and more! Please contact the A&S minister (HL Careann at anti_scrappy@yahoo.com) to schedule showing off your talents! We will end the public demonstration portion of the event with a dance around the Maypole! Bring your drums to pound out a beat or beat your feet and have a merry time weaving the ribbons!

Vendors are welcome to set up and sell their wares. We will not be charging a separate vendor fee although donations are readily accepted. Food vendors must contract through the Clallam County Fairgrounds and will be charged either a flat fee of $100 or 18% of sales. (Drink only vendors are exempt from this requirement.) Additionally, we will be hosting an SCA Swap Meet so be prepared to leave with more stuff than with which you came! Any and all may set out a blanket or put up a booth and participate. (Vendors please contact Rhian at becky@dragonrail.com.)

We have plenty of camping space for all. There are RV parking spots with hook-ups free of charge. Garbage cans will be available, but pack out what you can, please.  Gas and charcoal fires are preferred and all fires must be at least 18” off the ground. Please leave the premises in like or better condition so we can come back next year.

Site fee is $15 for adults (18+), $10 for youth (6-17), kids 5 and under are free. There is a $40 family cap (mundane families only!). Suggested day trip (Saturday only) fee is $10 for adults and $5 for youth, kids 5 and under are still free. The $5 NMS per adult applies. (Note: if you don’t have proof of current SCA Membership, the NMS will apply regardless of actual membership status.) Our event is open free to the public on Saturday. We want their interest, goodwill, and desire to return to make next year’s event even better.

Please be aware this public demo will be held on a county property, we would like to remind everyone that the site is DISCREETLY damp. We encourage the use of period containers. The public is not blocked from entering the camping area, so they may wander through. Be aware of what personal belongings you have on display.
