On a group level:

Artisans requested to apply as vendors! Limited indoor space available, and lots of outdoor space! We ask that your product can be tied into the renaissance theme, and all vendors dress in clothing / costume that supports the theme. Know someone who might be interested – spread the word! Contact vendors@renfest.ca

Food Vendors – needed to help feed a hungry hoard of festival goers! Let us know what type of food you can offer – we endeavor to offer a variety of foods to our supplement our pub fare! Contact vendors@renfest.ca

Performances – Is your group looking for places to perform? Does it fit in with the renaissance theme? We’d love to feature your dance group, comedy troupe, theatre group and more! Stage slots are generally 30 minutes in length and must tie in with our theme to be considered. Contact us today so we can have an opportunity to discuss what you can offer! Contact entertainment@oxfordrenfest.com

Building Materials – We can always use things like fencing, rope, wood, and more!

Want to help support the festival with a corporate sponsorship? We have advertising opportunities at stages, in the pub, at the joust field, and in our souvenir full colour program! Contact us today so we can begin the discussion!
