We are seeking the help of volunteers with this years Known World Children's Fete at Pennsic. The Fete will be on July 31, 2013 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Great Hall.

We are truly in need of individuals or groups that can offer their time to run and/or sponsor activities (arts and crafts, games, dancing, supplies, prizes, etc.). Some of the popular activities are:

  • Face painting
  • Fighters for foam sword play
  • Storytellers
  • Jugglers
  • Puppeteers

We are also looking for volunteers to:

  • Assist with the sign-in for the children.
  • Persons to help endure the other volunteers are getting water and other refreshments
  • Fete security to ensure registration/sign-in and safety.
  • Assistance with set-up and/or break-down.  (To assist with set-up, please be at the Fete by noon)

For supplies, we are in the need of:

  • Facepaint
  • Foam swords
  • Paper towels
  • Dixie Cups

You do not have to be there for the entire 3 hours... but any help you may offer would be greatly appreciated.   The Fete is great fun. If you want action and excitement, this is the place for you!

If you cannot physically volunteer at the Fete but you, your household, local group, Barony or kingdom would still like to help in some way... maybe sponsoring an activity will be the best way for you to assist us in having a wonderful Fete.

Please continue to encourage and promote participation in the Children's Fete! If you will be at Pennsic, but you had not previously volunteered with the Children's Fete this year, we are asking you to please reconsider.
