Calling all want to be Lords and Ladies along with other merry folk the New York Renaissance Faire is look for you. Last month we told you that the Faire was back for 2021 and now it is time for you to think about not just attending the fun but being part of it.

There are so many places you could work this summer. The help wanted signs are up all over town in Poughkeepsie, Kingston, Newburgh and Middletown but why not travel to jolly old England in Tuxedo. Working at the New York Renaissance Faire is more than a job it is a daily trip back in time to a world full of Lords, Ladies, Knights, Kings and Queen plus all the merry folk and fairies who work and live around village.

They have jobs around the ground and the parking areas. Plus you could work in the market place as a salesperson or a hawker for the vendors.
