Stage and Street Act

To be considered as a Stage Act or Street Act for the Maryland Renaissance Festival, please send the following information:

  • a DVD of your act. (If you are sending a "highlights" dvd, it must contain at least 5 continuous minutes with patter.)
  • Please note: FIRE is not allowed to be used by performers at the festival. So, no fire eating or fire juggling.
  • The use of pre-recorded music or sound effects is not allowed at the festival.
  • your resume, references, and any PR (Public Relations) materials you may have
  • your salary request per day (no hat passing). Stage acts traditionally perform 4 twenty-five minute stage shows per day. Street performers are scheduled for 4-5 hours of street work with breaks
  • your availability. The MD Festival runs Saturdays, Sundays, and Labor Day Monday from August 23 until October 19, 2014. Full or partial contracts are available. If you are interested in a partial contract, please specify the best weekends for you.

For serious consideration for the 2014 season, all materials should be received by February 7th, 2014 - although packets are accepted year-round.

Proposals that do not include a salary request and availability information will not be considered seriously. Note: We are always willing to negotiate.
