The Moscow Renaissance Fair has benefited from decades of committed volunteers dedicated to celebrating spring in Moscow, rain or shine. This self-supporting community event relies on the involvement of many individuals, organizations and businesses and we would like to extend our appreciation to all of them. They are listed in the fair program that can be found at our website: moscowrenfair.org.

A few key groups deserve special mention. The city of Moscow once again played a key role in helping us make it all happen, especially Dwight Curtis, David Schott and the crew at the parks and recreation. Many thanks to Latah Sanitation Inc./Moscow Recycling and the MHS Environmental Club — they helped us achieve 90 percent composted and recycled waste and only 10 percent went to the landfill. The Idaho Youth Challenge Academy made set-up a breeze and gave many a bystander a chuckle as the enthusiastic uniformed cadets zipped around grooming the park, setting up tents and carrying equipment. Avista Utilities provided a truck and crew to safely erect and take down our Maypole. And, finally, many thanks to all whimsical souls who voluntarily spread joy through costume, parading and dancing — you rock.
