Maypole Faire XXII

May 01, 2015 to May 03, 2015
Druim Doineann

Port Angeles - Clallam & Jefferson Counties, WA

Autocrat: Eriu O'Tuathail

Maypole Faire XXI is the Shire of Druim Doineann’s annual public demonstration. This is our fourth year of hosting the event at the Clallam County Fairgrounds in Port Angeles. We are using the west side of the fairgrounds, so our entrance will be the yellow colored gate. (The Kiwanis put on their annual garage sale on the same Saturday, so don’t mix up the gates!)

The site opens Friday, May 1st at 9:00 am for vendors and 10:00 am for campers. We are open to the public on Saturday, May 2nd from 10:00 – 5:00. Site closes at 2:00 pm, Sunday, May 3rd.

We have scheduled our Heavy Championship and an Equestrian demonstration to include horseback archery, spear throwing, and more! The Archery range will be open and available to all. We hope to have a Thrown Weapon range available as well as a Rapier tournament. (Volunteers please contact Siobhan at

The A&S pavilion is currently scheduled to provide demonstrations on Lamp Work Beading (with goods available for purchase), Period Fiber Dying, Chainmail Construction, Storytelling, and more! Please contact the A&S minister (HL Careann at to schedule showing off your period appropriate talents! Bards are encouraged to perform all day and please feel free to pass the hat! We will end the public demonstration portion of the event with a dance around the Maypole! Bring your drums to pound out a beat or beat your feet and have a merry time weaving the ribbons!

Vendors are welcome to set up and sell their wares. We will not be charging a separate vendor fee although donations are readily accepted. Food vendors must contract through the Clallam County Fairgrounds and will be charged either a flat fee of $100 or 18% of sales. (Drink only vendors are exempt from this requirement.) Additionally, we will be hosting an SCA Swap Meet so be prepared to leave with more stuff than with which you came! Any and all may set out a blanket or put up a booth and participate. (Vendors please contact Siobhan at

The site is on the west end of the Clallam County Fairgrounds. Gas and charcoal fires are preferred and all fires must be at least 18” off the ground. The site also has a public restroom and working showers, so bring plenty of quarters! Please leave the premises in like or better condition so we can come back next year.

We have plenty of camping space for all. Please do not use any tent spikes over 10” in length so we don’t inadvertently pierce their irrigation system. There are RV parking spots with water and electric hook-ups free of charge. Garbage cans will be available, but pack out what you can, please.

Please be aware this public demo will be held on a county property, we would like to remind everyone that the site is DISCREETLY damp. We encourage the use of period containers. The public is not blocked from entering the camping area, so they may wander through. Be aware of what personal belongings you have on display.

The Shire does not have a Pied Piper or Youth Activities Coordinator at this time. For the safety of your children, all minors must have a responsible adult in tow at all times.

Site fee is $15 for adults (18+), $10 for youth (6-17), kids 5 and under are free. There is a $40 family cap (mundane families only!). Suggested day trip (Saturday only) fee is $10 for adults and $5 for youth, kids 5 and under are still free. The $5 NMS per adult applies. (Note: if you don’t have proof of current SCA Membership, the NMS will apply regardless of actual membership status.) Our event is open free to the public on Saturday. We want their interest, goodwill, and desire to return to make next year’s event even better.

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
