The Avalon Cast

Introducing the Cast of Avalon. The Lady Elaine of Glamorganshire (Traci Peacock), sister of the beloved King Arthur (Mark Hall), welcomes all to the annual celebration of her brother's coronation. But beware! Queen Guinevere (Laminda Miller) must be protected from the evil designs of  Morgan la Fey,  who seeks to ransom the queen for Arthur's crown. 

 

The Court will hold a Commissioning Ceremony each day of the Faire, awarding titles of honor to those who wish to be recognized. Is it your birthday? Alert a Cast member and walk the Parade as our invited guest. Meet us in the lanes to chat or mayhaps share a meal. And don't be too surprised if a scuffle ensues over who spilled who's ale! All of this and more is presented in the lanes and on the stages of Avalon Faire by this talented troupe, the Cast of Avalon.

Diane plays guitars (6 & 12 string), bodhram (the Celtic drum) and sings with gusto and compassion. She is a consummate entertainer who delights in rapport with new friends and old!

Pangur.jpg

Pangur Band

Pangur Band developed into a musical group in 2019 out of the combined effort of classically trained musicians.  From the original conception and music ideas by Shannon Roberts (Violin/Voice/Bodhrán), working with Ben Shepherd (Guitar/Vocals) for arranging, the music of Pangur Band features skilled musicians playing traditional music with a personal touch and represents the cultural wealth found in the Irish/Celtic tradition.  Members include, Jessica Ogilvie (Flute/Tin Whistle), Mitch Moehring (Bass), Tristan Roberts (Violin/Vocals), Kevin Ogilvie (Percussion), and Miranda Dolive (Vocals). 

every Faire day except Apr 17 & Apr 30

Raptors Keep.jpg

Raptor's Keep

Raptors Keep is a Conservation/Education organization that is Federally permitted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  We are tasked with the day to day health and welfare of the raptors in our care.  We do not "own" the birds.  U. S. Fish and Wildlife owns them and permits them to us.  We are then required to provide conservation/education programs to organizations such as the Avalon Faire.

We bring the conservation message to the people, providing them with the opportunity to be close to these apex predators.  Most folks only have seen these magnificent animals at a distance, while many have never had an opportunity to see them all.  It is our goal to answer any and all questions related to the raptors for anyone who is interested.  In addition to the flight demonstrations, we will provide a display where the birds may be viewed and photographed from a safe distance.  

Our hope is that the public will leave with a better understanding of how the natural cycle of life works and how these apex predators fit into that cycle.

Thom Bedlam.jpg

Thom Bedlam

Captain Thom Bedlam is landlocked, bored, and bursting with thomfoolery. It's an array of magical mayhem, the sharing of vastly inaccurate knowledge, and gregarious (if ineffective lessons) on piracy. Of all the lying, cheating, unscrupulous scoundrels you'll ever meet, you'll like him the best. He is not so much memorable as he is hilariously traumatizing!

Triskellion

With songs ranging from the traditional to the fanciful, from silly to introspective, no two Triskelion sets are ever the same..... even if we plan them that way. Come sing and dance with us and, if that is not enough, come see Floyd get fired! Always a crowd pleaser.
