Renaissance Faire

The Renaissance Fair Club is responsible for organizing and running the Whitman College Renaissance Fair that takes place every spring. We close down Boyer and turn the memorial lawns into a recreation of Renaissance England open to campus and the Walla Walla community. Planning for the fair involves contracting with entertainers, organizing vendors, advertising the fair around Walla Walla, working extensively with ASWC and other college services and rehearsing for the performance we put on throughout the day.

Additionally, the club organizes a murder mystery dinner for the first weekend of spring semester. The club prepares food and puts on the mystery for about 45 students and members of the community in the Lyman dining hall.
