Submitting Information
As of 1 June 2006, SCRIBE no longer collects Event, Merchant and Performer information. Maintaining the level of information integrity that Ed Westfield set is just not possible without a dedicated staff of Associates. In particular, maintaining the database and software is a full-time job.

Instead, SCRIBE is taking advantage of the information already available on the web by maintaining a list of Event Links. Merchants and Performers are invited to the join either the League of Renaissance Merchants web ring or the Guild of Renaissance Performers web ring.

Archives and FAQs are still available.


Caveat Emptor

The SCRIBE Network's self imposed charter is to be an archival center for the phenonom that is loosely known as "renaissance faires." As such, much of the information it contains must be taken with a grain of salt. Information is volunteered by individual participants of the renaissance entertainment/education industry and as such, may be incomplete, inaccurate or just plain wrong, and probably out of date.

List of Events

This is an alphabetical list of events. Links to event web sites and contact email are included whenever possible.
Events must occur at least annually and must have a European theme. Living history, SCA, and "renaissance entertainment" events may be listed, however, the event must be open to the public and there must be some amount of interaction between participants and the public. The time period portrayed may be anywhere from the early Middle Ages through late Renaissance.
Theme and time period are flexible. Fantasy themes with a basis in Medieval or Renaissance literature are acceptable (for example, The Fairie Queen) but modern fantasy (Hobbits and Middle Earth) is not. Muskateers are acceptable. Klingons are not. Seasonal Dickens-based events, while a stretch, are OK.

League Home The League of Renaissance Merchants

The League of Renaissance Merchants is a web ring for artists, craftsmen and merchants who
  • participate in Medieval or Renaissance faires, SCA events or Living History events;
  • provide period costumes, accessories, etc., to event participants and patrons;
  • sell products created by pariticapants in these events.

If you are a participant or represent one or more participants in SCA, Living History, or Medieval or Renaissance events and have something to sell, this is the ring to join! On member merchant web sites you may find clothiers and costumers, smithies and armouries, jewelers, booksellers, potters and glassblowers ... literally every type of artist, craftsman or merchant with something for the Medieval or Renaissance life style.

Instructions for joining the League, searching for a particular merchant, or just browsing, can be found on Ringsurf. The criteria for joining the League are

  • You are a merchant participating in Renaissance faires, SCA or other Living History events selling to either patrons or participants at these events.
  • Your web site must be commercial, that is, it must reflect your business.
  • Your site must make clear your participation in SCA, Living History or Renaissance Events, either by listing the events you participate in, or providing appropriate background information.
  • Sites representing multiple merchants or artists are welcome. However, sites that simply review or advertise are not eligible to join this Ring.
  • Auction sites may not join this Ring.
