Come Join the Ambassadors Guild!
Do you help out with a local volunteer theater group?
Did you love being in your high school play or your college drama class?
Alabama Medieval Fantasy Festival, like any renaissance style faire or festival, depends on its volunteers.
It is fair to say that every participant is a volunteer, some just more than others. We all come out because we are willing to help each other create an experience of history, fun, and imagination. We each contribute our part in creating a medieval village at festival time that invites families to enjoy a day in the European Renaissance (8th-16th centuries).
Volunteering has its perks! Mistress Jennifer is the guild mistress of the Ambassador’s guild, she can tell you all about it!
Free entrance to the festival, a special, designated volunteer-only pavilion, lots of new friends, and a sense of accomplishment, to name a few. Almost all participants at faire need to be “garbed” appropriately as a person of the Medieval period. Some roles that require participants to be in garb include greeters at the entrance gate, general ambiance (interacting with the public), stamping hands at the entrance gate, running messages, trash collection, parking, site safety, etc. There are some types of work where garb is not necessary, for example, preparing the faire site on weekends the month before faire, set up and take down of faire, cleaning up the festival site the week or weekend after faire, and weekly once over.
