Arrrrr Mateys!

The island is looking for you! This Saturday we will be having our Open House for the 2011 season.

Saturday June 25, 2011 10 am - 3 pm

Rotary Park at the Main (Knight's) Pub

2577 West Meyer Rd. Wentzville MO.

Our costumed volunteers get garbed up and walk around the Fest site chatting with patrons all day and giving the island a real presence. Entertaining the patrons is a real treat for these folks and we are happy to invite you to join in on the fun!

You could come on out and get information about being a Pirate!, Villager, Military personnel, an Aristocrat, or even a St.Claire Lady!

We also have several positions available in our Support Groups.

Front gate- This garbed group handles all of our front gate duties. Greeting our patrons as they come in and giving them a hearty thank you on their way out as well as other duties.

Safety team- This group does not wear historical garb but instead they wear those lovely bright yellow shirts that are easy to spot. Our safety team proudly helps our volunteers and patrons stay as safe as they can during the day by giving first aid and dealing with other general safety concerns.

Orange Crew- This group of people wear the bright orange shirts while going all over site doing various behind the stage duties.

We will have staff available to answer any questions and help you with the sign up process.

We hope to see all of you there and are looking forward to working with you!

Travel back in time as you step into the beautifully wooded, 16th century village, we call Petit Lyon! Immerse yourself in the costumes and mannerisms of the era. Thrill to the exploits of Jousting Knights on thundering steeds. Roam the village shops for unique crafts and goods as our artisans demonstrate period skills. Delight in comedy, music and feats of derring do. Feast on delicious food and drink while strolling minstrels entertain. Interact with the colorful villagers, nobles, peasants and personalities of ages past.

Petit Lyon is privileged to host some of the finest crafters and artisans in the realm! You will find a wide variety of handcrafted treasures as well as unique items brought from the far corners of the world to entice and delight. Our merchants offer a delightful selection of period-inspired wares for your perusal, games, services and foods for your enjoyment. Visitors can watch some of the crafts in progress as the artisans demonstrate their talents.

You'll witness swordfighting and juggling, and hear music and laughter around every corner! Our costumed cast have re-created a 16th century French village where you will be able to see and interact with everyone from peasant to noble courtier.

Children will enjoy the petting zoo and games in the Kid's Kingdom. The King's Quest lets our young visitors earn a special audience with the King and Queen. The Faire is especially proud of several new educational offerings this year: the Hospitaller Knights encampment, the Viking camp and longboat display, and the wood collier camp.
