Each May, Cain’s Crossing Renaissance Faire celebrates the culmination of months of dedicated volunteer service and the support of our volunteers and vendors. The faire literally takes a village to execute successfully.
Cain’s Crossing offers the opportunity to support an educational, family-friendly faire that donates profits to assist local schools. Cain’s Crossing is a 501c3 organization and donations are tax deductible. All sponsors receive brand placement and additional VIP perks.
Our renaissance faire relies upon our team of dedicated volunteers to help with a variety of activities prior to and during the faire. From event site set up and tear down to managing craft activities in the Children’s Glen, there’s an activity for everyone.
