Dear Artisan,

You are likely here because a team member saw your product, thought you would be a great fit at our show, and pointed you to this page.

This page is an invitation to apply to sell your handcrafted wares at the 12th annual Robin Hood’s Faire in Harwinton, Connecticut. Our show takes place over seven consecutive weekends, from May 21 through July 3, 2022. We attract an average of 1,800 – 2,500 guests daily that we are confident would be interested in what you have to sell. 

Robin Hood’s Faire is an enchanted recreation of an old-world spring festival complete with jousting knights, magicians, street performers, period music, and more. Guests spend the day watching themed shows, shopping, eating, and playing games.
