What is the Medieval Fair? The Medieval Fair is an outdoor living history arts and crafts fair.
We aim to recreate an English Market Fair in the 1360-1500s. Our vendors contribute to this illusion by playing the roles of town merchants. They are required to wear appropriate period costumes and decorate their booths accordingly. Detailed costume and booth recommendations are provided on request. We have a stage for entertainment, jousting, games, bounce houses, and various arts and crafts.
THIS FAIRE IS BEING PRESENTED BY THE STUDENTS OF
THE DOER DAY & JUNIOR HIGH ENTREPRENEUR CLASS.
All sales proceeds go to the students and their families.
Attendance is estimated at 450 people for this Medieval Fair.

Is my craft suited for a Medieval Fair BOOTH?
Intending to recreate a 14th – 16th-century market, we strive to keep all arts and crafts within the medieval/’Renaissance theme. We strongly prefer that you or your immediate employees make all arts and crafts. We will still consider your application if you sell imports as part of your inventory. However, preference will be given to vendors who produce their items for sale. This is a juried fair, and each application will pass through a selection committee who rates vendor products based on several factors, including, but not limited to, and in no implied order of importance:
- Conformance to the 14th-16th century fair theme
- Handcrafted items or art
- Artisans who demonstrate their craft at the Fair
- quality of artistry and unique product offerings
- Adherence to costuming and booth decoration guidelines
The following products are prohibited:
Plastic items such as commercially produced products one may find in a flea market
Commercially produced import items will be permitted only if the Selection Jury deems them especially relevant to the European medieval period or reenactors. They will not create unfair competition with similar handcrafted items.
The final decision on all vendor items permissible for sale will reside with the Medieval Fair Coordinator.
VENDOR APPLICATION DEADLINE IS 5:00 p.m., CST, March 15th, 2022. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Artisan, Food, and Game Vendors: Submit completed application, No application fee for registered students and their immediate family. Only registered Terra Families may participate as vendors.
