Pennsic Information Services
Pennsic Information Services division is composed of Information Point, Lost and Found, Pennsic Town Criers, the Media Liaison, the Pennsicwar.org website, Pennsic Social Media (Facebook & Twitter), and the Event guide.
At Pennsic you can find us in the blue and white Town Hall tent, just in front of the camp store (see map):
Town Hall is the home of
- Information Point
- Town Criers
- Lost & Found
As well as:
Head of Information Point and Lost & Found
Information Point will be open from 9 am - 6 pm starting on on Friday, July 29, and closing at noon on Friday, August 12.
We are the folks who have the answers or will help you find them.
- We can help you find a group's campsite, a specific merchant, or a type of merchant.
- We have the up-to-date Pennsic schedule with any changes.
- We have local phone books, and the local weather forecasts.
- We post the names of those who have messages from the Emergency Phone Line: 724-636-1500
Please tell people at home to call only in emergencies. Callers must leave a message with your full modern name, your SCA name, the name of the group you are camping with, and the block number. (Make sure they know how to spell all these names!) Message recipients' names are posted on the message board in front of Town Hall - please be sure to check it regularly. We can only attempt to deliver a message in the event of an extreme emergency.
Lost and Found at Information Point
General Lost Items: If you have lost an item, please come to Town Hall/Information Point during open hours (9 am to 6 pm) to see if it has been turned in. Tradition holds that if you are reunited with your lost item, you work a shift at Lost & Found as a thank you.
General Found Items: Please turn in found items at Town Hall/Information Point during normal open hours (9 am to 6 pm).
Specific Lost Items: If you have LOST a Cellphone, a Wallet containing Identification, Vehicle Keys, or Medications OUTSIDE of regular Information Point hours please make your way to the Watch Tent (see map) and notify them of your lost items and your contact information. If your items are turned in we will do our best to re-unite you with them.
Specific Found Items: If you have FOUND a Cellphone, Wallet containing Identification, Vehicle Keys or Medications OUTSIDE of regular Information Point hours please make your way to the Watch Tent (see map) and deposit the found items with them.

We Strongly Suggest that you change the Lock Screen on your phone to DISPLAY your modern name during Pennsic to facilitate the return of your phone should you lose it.
Battlefield Lost and Found items: Items found on the battlefield will be taken to the Marshals' tent on the battlefield. Please check there for lost fighting items. If you are looking for items that were lost last year, please check at Information Point during normal operating hours.
