Thank you for your interest in the SunCoast Renaissance Festival! This highly anticipated and increasingly popular event held at the Sarasota Fairgrounds will enchant Sarasota, Florida, for four consecutive weekends: November 7-8, 14-15, 21-22 & 27-29, 2020. Artisans and craftspeople are invited to display their finest talents and wares and join our list of actors, musicians, and street performers for a journey back to the days of brave knights and fair maidens.

The Fair will be held on Saturdays and Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Please note that all vendors must follow Fair guidelines detailed in the requirements and application. Education and entertainment are both extremely important to us, and it must show in your displays and interaction.
