Fall Fantasy Craft Fair
10-25-2020 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
This year the Pirates of Port Royale will be taking over Stonefield Cellars Winery to host a gallery of fantastical artisans and craftspeople!
Rain or Shine. Open Saturday & Sunday, Oct. 24-Oct.25th, from 12-6pm.
With the closing of many larger renaissance festivals and magical gatherings, the Stonefield Cellar’s crew has banded together this fall to open up our winery to many of the wondrous vendors you may have missed this year. Our winery will be decked out in full pirate regalia, and we encourage guests to dress for the occasion in their best renaissance/fantasy/pirate costumes! Please read all of our COVID-19 rules to insure we can maintain a safe environment for all!
COVID Safety Rules:
- Wear: Face Coverings are required!
-While inside the winery building (shopping or using the restrooms)
-Outside while walking around and while visiting vendor tents. Note: If you are safely distanced (6ft) from others (people you did not come with) while seated in a chair or on a blanket on our patio, garden, or lawn area AND you are actively eating and drinking, you are not required to wear a face covering.
-Our security staff will be enforcing these safety rules as we can only host this event if everyone is in compliance. You must be wearing a mask to be permitted into this event.
- Wait: Please make note of our 6 ft floor markings for the wait line inside the winery building; these spots are your place marker to wait your turn to approach the bar for placing orders/paying for items. Please also wait your turn when shopping at our vendor’s stations, allow ample (6ft) space between you and another shopper. Make sure you stay 6ft away from others not in your ‘safe bubble’ while seated on our terraced lawn.
- Wash: Even though we sanitize commonly touched items often (e.g., our email sign up pen, cash register pad), hand sanitizer will be provided at these areas for your use. And of course, please wash your hands before leaving our restroom.
