Pennsic Artisans' Row

"By faithful study of our nobler arts, our nature's softened, and more gentler grows."
Ovid, Roman poet      13 BC 17 AD


Artisans' Row promotes a wide variety of Arts and Sciences. Whether you are an experienced Artisan, a Novice excited about a new activity, or would just like to see what a craft is all about, there is a place for you at Artisans' Row.

Each day, Artisans' Row offers three topics with continuous demonstrations and displays, hands-on participation, sharing of ideas, and joyful camaraderie. We have over 20 different offerings on the schedule so far.


Times and Location

Artisans' Row is in a new location! Our three tents are in TumbleHome Square on Chandler's Road between St. Lawrence Way and Dragon Trace, next to the new Great Hall and across from the European Dance Tent. (see map)

Artisans' Row will be open Tuesday, July 29th through Thursday, August 7th, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

There will be so much to see and do! Stop by for fifteen minutes, an hour, or stay all day. It's up to you.

Registering/Sponsoring a Topic

Share your experiences and skills. If you enjoy demonstrating what you do and would like to share it with others, please propose a topic and email us.

Topics that are accepted and scheduled by May 1st will appear in the Pennsic on-site book.

We will continue to receive topic proposals until June 15th or until all the tent spaces are filled.

The schedule of Artisans' Row days will be available online and at Artisans' Row and University Point at Pennsic.

We particularly encourage artisans who have already established groups to register early to accommodate your requests for particular days. If you are not part of a group or do not feel confident presenting alone, we hope to put you in touch with others interested in the same topic to coordinate activities.

We ask that you set up their activities for the day between 9 and 10 am. You are welcome to use your allotted tent for as long as you wish that day, as long as you leave the space ready for the next group to use on the following day.
