Known World Arts & Sciences Display
Sunday, August 3rd 1:00 - 6:00 pm
Come and be part of the awesome display of craftsmanship from the Known World!
Pennsic 43 brings the 17th annual display of the talents & knowledge of the Known World's Artisans and Craftspeople.
People from all over the world take a day out of their War to sit and share their knowledge, effort, and the beauty of their work and research.
This is not meant to be a competition, and items on display are not always finished. Some are works in progress, and some are just a representation of what
someone knows and does.
We have had people discussing how they researched and put on a feast, or something far too large to bring to Pennsic.
Often, people are exhibiting to find others who know more than they do and to make contacts in a given field.
I think I have the best job at Pennsic, as I get to see all of your hard work and talents. Every year I go home energized with things I would like to do.

The Arts & Sciences Display will be held on Sunday, August 3th, in Time & Place the Great Hall across from the European Dance Tent.
12:30 pm: Artisans set up their entries
1 pm – 6 pm: the Display is open to the public
6 – 6:30 pm: Break down displays
Yes, you can come later than 12:30, or leave earlier than 6:30 – we just thank you for the time you can share with others.
Everyone must have their objects/displays out by 6:30pm, when I hope you will help me take down all the tables and return the Great Hall to
its empty state. Any display items left behind will be taken to Lost & Found.
The Youth Display will take place in the Great Hall at the same time as the regular Display.
Please use the Youth A & S Display Youth A&S Display
registration form to reserve a space.
Registration Online Registration:
Please submit an A&S Display form
to pre-register online.
Online registration is open until July 12, 2014.
You only need to submit one form, no matter how many items you are displaying.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged, as we have a limited number of tables available.
Pre-registration allows us to assign table space to the different Kingdoms and print out nice large signs for everyone.
Space will be assigned to those who pre-register in the order they are received. We have enough tables for 100 people, and cannot guarantee space for everyone.
(You may bring your own tables.)
Registration at Pennsic may be possible, depending on how much table space is still available. When you arrive at Pennsic, please visit
University Point for information.
I do take pictures of every person and display – making sure that I get the sign identifying you in the picture. I post them on Photobucket,
so people can see what they missed. Often, people in Kingdoms write asking for permission to use them in newsletters. People use them to document
the work of a candidate for an award. Just tell me if you do not want this to happen, or would prefer to only have your work photographed, not you.
I do understand that some people do not want all of their work/research put up on the web, and keep a list of those who do not want this to happen.
Space is divided by Kingdom, allowing the Royalty, Peers, and Populace to see the efforts of their Craftspeople more easily.
Only tables will be provided, although some are picnic tables. Last year, there were extra chairs and benches in the building, but we can't guarantee that. Please bring your own chair if you do not want to spend the day sharing a bench.
There is a limit of 3 ft wide space per person (not per item), unless you bring your own table (or other display stand). I have a lot of space, but not a lot of tables.
If you have any special requirements of space, please describe it on your registration form, or contact me.
You are not required to be present with your items, and if you can only attend for part of the day, we still thank you for sharing your knowledge.
However, please have someone to watch your items when you cannot be there. We cannot watch all the items, and cannot take responsibility for them.
