Welcome to the 2023 Hoggetowne Medieval Faire Demo.

Members of the SCA, An Crosaire is looking for volunteers for our big annual demo!

  • Fighters - both heavy and light weapons wanted for fighting demos.

  • Artisans and craft persons to show how it's done in our "village".

  • Musicians and dancers for dancing demos.

  • Wandering Wayfinders to interact with the Populace and guide them to their interests

  • Docents who do the talking for Artisans

  • Volunteers in Soda Booth and Archery

No matter your interaction level or knowledge level, we have many opportunities to help!

Thank you for all your help and support.

General Information if you are planning to volunteer with us:

Food: You can always eat the Faire food but the cost can be high. To save some money, An Crosaire has a meal plan for our volunteers for a minimal cost. Lunch for $4/person

Accommodation: There are plenty of hotels in Gainesville, but if you want or need crash space, we have plenty of An Crosairans who will be more than happy to give you a place to stay. Contact

Clothing: Please wear Ren Faire appropriate garb. We will have Viking, Greek and Roman, Italian, French, English in the tents. If you would like to be in the Living history area, expect to get dirtier than if you were in the demo tents. Bring a cloak. The weather always ranges from wet, to hot, to cold.

Please do NOT wear your SCA ranking jewelry or belts (unless that is the only belt you have). Our ranking system maybe confusing to the mundane populace.

Do NOT bring your expensive items with you. Thievery does happen (especially on kids day).

Do NOT bring live steel to the demo. Not even peace-tied live steel.
