The Story

On Tuesday, March 14, the Pendragon Costumes booth at Scarborough Renaissance Festival caught fire, and our building was lost to the flames.

Since there’s only one month before the festival opens, we must determine what our level of participation at Scarborough can be this year, but with your help it’s possible that we can make a swift recovery from this loss and come back even stronger.

Thank you for supporting us both now, in our time of need, and for the last 23 years. It’s been our pleasure to share our passion with you, our friends and family, and we are overwhelmed by your outpouring of support.

We opened for business this past weekend!  Thanks to everyone for your hard work, and selfless giving.  Its cliche, but we truly couldn't have made it this far with out you.  Even though we done a Herculean task, we aren't quite done yet.  We still have a lot of painting and period decorating to do, and some additional carpentry.  Also, as I mentioned previously, we need proper doors, and windows yet.  Please let everyone know how much we've accomplished with your help, and ask them to support us just a little.

Sorry for the long dark silence.  We've all been awful busy getting things ready for opening day.  As you can see, the building will be "livable" in time for Faire to open this weekend, but just barely.  There's still a lot of work to do.  We don't have proper doors, nor windows for the second floor.  We also need to buy display fixtures, and decorations.  Before you ask, while these items were covered by insurance, the policy pays their current cash value, not replacement value. After years and even decades of depreciation, that value isn't worth much. Together we've accomplished so much, and in such a short time.  Don't let the fervor die now.  Please continue to spread the word.  The only way we get the fullest value from your heartfelt gift is to raise enough to finish this project.

Progress, progress, progress!  We are nearing the deadline and it’ll be close… so close!  This weekend the building will have a shake roof!  HUZZAH!!!  The participation from volunteers, as well as a few of our vendors cutting their pricing has been immensely helpful.  We are getting the fullest strength from the buying power of the gifts we've received.  Unfortunately, our finances are still going to fall short.  I've adjusted our goal once again to reflect the contractor's most recent estimates.  All we can do at this point is ask that everyone continue to spread the word so others have the opportunity to support the project.
