2015 Known World Children's Fete at Pennsic Seeking Volunteers

The organizers of this year's Children's Fete are seeking volunteers to assist with, and to sponsor, activities.

The team's announcement:


We are seeking the help of volunteers for this year’s Known World Children's Fete at Pennsic. The Fete will be on Wednesday, August 5th, 2015 from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm at The Great Hall.

Can you sing a song, dance a jig, paint a face, smile and laugh a lot, color a picture, have fun or any sort of other activities? Then we could use you!

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
  • Bouncy Castle (we need a financial sponsor and people to man it)

We are also looking for volunteers to:

  • Assist with the sign-in for the children
  • To help ensure the other volunteers are getting water and other refreshments
  • Help with fete security to ensure registration/sign-in and safety
  • Assist 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 (we use: Snazaroo Face Paint Palette Kit - Unisex)
  • 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 have not previously volunteered with the Children's Fete please consider doing so this year.

Thank you for your time, effort and consideration in this matter and the fete as a whole! If you are interested in volunteering or sponsoring an activity you may contact Lady Aine at youth@atlantia.sca.org or Countess Rowan Berran McDowell at gerkeeper@gmail.com. Her Highness Esa will be the Sponsoring Rose, she may be reached at esa@ebonwoulfe.com. Any one of us would be glad to help you!
