Promos are an important part
of the Kansas City Renaissance Festival. It's how we
get the word out to our audience. Every performer is
required to fulfill a certain number of promo hours.
The number of hours you are required to do depends on how
you are cast. See your group leader for more information.
should you contact if you want to sign up for a promo?
If you have any questions or would like to sign up for
a promo, please call Alex -
Promo Schedule - this is in google dogs
- Show up! If you are a no show
at a promo, you're leaving someone else holding
- Be on time!
- Check in with the person in charge. It's your responsibility to
find them, not the other way around. Lots of times it will be someone who
doesn't know who we are, just check in and move on.
- Only wear festival approved costumes. This includes
accessories such as bags and shoes and jewelry, and the things you drink
and eat out of.
- Bring appropriate drinking utensils. Especially for a parade, you
need to make appropriate arrangements for drinking. You're going to want
water at the 4th of July parade and no plastic water bottles are allowed.
- Clean and press your costume before you go out. It may seem a
little ridiculous to say this, but I see more wrinkled, smelly costumes at
promos than anywhere else. We represent the fair where ever we go. It's
our responsibility to look our best at all times!
- No smoking in costume when in sight of the public.
- No anachronisms - no watches or inappropriate costumes just because
it's a promo.
- No inappropriate behavior. We're judged more harshly
at promos than
anywhere else we go. Please be aware of your audience and make the
appropriate choices about how you conduct yourself.
- Remember that we are the ambassadors of the fair. It's up to us to
promote it in a positive fashion whenever we're out in costume!
