Costumes are not required but highly encouraged. You'll have so much more fun when you wear one.

There are several opportunities to rent or purchase one at one of the Faire merchants. Don't feel you have to do it all at once. I purchase a new item each year to add to my collection. It's more fun that way.




L-R: Virginia, Joy, Anna and Mona having lots of fun at last year's event

Adult costumes range in price from $18 - $65 (Average price is $39)

I will meet those who come early at the front gate at 9:30 am. We'll see the opening of the gates new show at 10am. Have your tickets purchased in advance for this time meeting.

NEW The Opening Gate Show - Welcome to Deptford

The newly elected Lord Mayor and village leaders of Port Deptford will greet our guests in joyous celebration as they prepare for the arrival of our beautiful and brilliant young Queen of England, Elizabeth. Come and Revel with us as we open the city’s Marketplace Faire!

2nd chance to meetup will be at 11:30 am at THE MAYOR’S SHOW

At 11:30 on the Maybower Stage, our boisterous newly elected Lord Mayor and his gleeful Wife, will be delighted to share with you the preparations they’ve made for the Queen’s arrival. Enjoy wondrous presentations of music and dance. Will the evil Sheriff Blount, blunt our fun or will the Queen’s arrival signal the start of the celebration?

3rd Meetup opportunity will be at noon at the Maybower Stage for the new QUEEN’S SHOW

At the stroke of Noon, brings forth the Queen’s arrival to the city of Deptford. After receiving the civic leaders, the Queen reluctantly agrees to a verbal sparring match with the Duke of Norfolk. If the match is won by the Queen, will his grace keep his word or will his fiery temper prompt him to a dangerous outburst? How will it fadge? Join us at the Maybower Stage and witness the next installment in the Tudor series.

After the Queen's Show we'll head over to get some grub.

We'll meet up one last time at 2:00 pm at the Kid's Kingdom stage for our Synergite Member, Joseph the Conjuror's Magic show.

Some things not to miss;

The Broon Show
Broon brings a conversational style to the variety comedy world with less emphasis on corny gags and empty flash and more on audience interaction and personality. While cracking bullwhips, juggling bowling balls or eating fire Broon keeps the laughs alive with a dry wit and extemporaneous style that keeps audiences in stitches. With his variety skills and stand-up comedy style Broon presents a show filled end to end with sly humor and impressive stunts and Broon's extensive improvisational experience guarantees no two shows will be exactly alike. Visit Broon's Website

MooNie the Magnif'Cent
Enchanting audiences for over 20 years without saying so much as a word, MooNie is the undisputed master of the Faire! MooNie presents a show that combines classic clowning, slack rope work and enough comedy to leave you gasping for breath. Enter the mind of MooNie. Visit MooNie's Website

Drum Jam
As the sun begins to set, the air fills with the booming rhythms of the drums. The ground shakes with the pounding of dancing feet. Bring your drum and join the jam, or clap, stomp, whistle, dance and shout along. With Wolgemut, Seraphim Mora and The Queen’s Percussion Ensemble, partake in the roaring crescendo of a day at Deptford; where the thunder of drums fuses with the crashing waves of dance to form the sound and fury that is the Drum Jam. The rhythms rise at 6:20 daily at the White Hart Inn.

NEW The Final Huzzah!

Join us as the villagers take their bows and sing their village to sleep. 7pm at our City Gates.

    The weather was perfect. It was warm with a breeze most of the time.
    We saw a few shows, ate a few delights and we saw a lot of very interesting costumes.
    Lots of fun.

    If you're looking to carpool, post it here in the comments section. Sharing the ride, gas & parking expense is nice but the ride there and back with fun people is priceless!
