The Whitman College Renaissance Faire Committee would like to
invite you to participate in our 48th Annual Renaissance Faire, to be
held on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017, from 10 am to 5 pm. You
have received this letter because you are in our database or we were
given one of your business cards. If, for any reason, you would like
to be taken off of our mailing list please email Kaitlin Harrison at [email protected]
with the name of your business and we will do so.
Merchants have the option of either buying a booth space to sell
at, or wandering the street to peddle wares. Booth spaces come in 3
sizes (reduced rates in parentheses apply to nonprofit organizations
and Whitman students/staff/faculty):
Small (12 ft. long x 11 ft. wide) $25 ($10)
Medium (12 ft. long x 22 ft. wide) $45 ($18)
Large (12 ft. long x 33 ft. wide) $60 ($24)
Wandering Merchant (no booth space) $10
PLEASE ensure ALL of your wares, tables, etc., will fit entirely
inside of your booth spacealthough there will be open grass behind
you, we are not legally allowed to sell products on Whitman property,
so you must stay on the street.
Electricity is available upon request; water is also available, but
must be transported (no running water hookups). Please remember
capacities are limited and the earliest requests will have priority.
Booths offering food must obtain a Temporary Food Service Permit and
food handlers must have a Food Worker Card, both of which can be
acquired through the Walla Walla County Health Department. To avoid
late fees, permits must be obtained at least 1 week ahead. The Walla
Walla County Health Department can be reached at:

We offer the option of borrowing tables and chairs for booths.
This is an outdoor event and we cannot provide shelter from rain, sun
or wind, though we greatly encourage you bring your own. We also
encourage all merchants to come to Faire in a Medieval or
Renaissancestyle costume. This is not required, and costumes do not
have to be strictly authentic, but it does add to the merry Faire
atmosphere. If you need suggestions or ideas, we can provide you with
information on making your own clothes or altering modern clothing.
If you are interested in participating in our Faire, please fill
out the attached application and either email it to Kaitlin Harrison
at [email protected]
or mail it to the address below. You can
either pay on the day of the Faire, or include a check made out to
ASWC with your application.

Please return the application as soon as possible, as we have

information about our Faire, including setup times and directions.

to consult the Merchants’ Information webpage on our website at
