Moscow Renaissance Fair poster contest announced

Plans are underway for the 49th annual Moscow Renaissance Fair, set for April 30-May 1 at East City Park, contingent on conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizers are seeking artists to submit designs for the event poster, with an eye toward whimsical, colorful images, not necessarily Renaissance period pieces. The winning design will be featured on the program cover and on posters displayed throughout the region. Details and the entry forms can be found at

Entries submitted in person must be turned in no later than by 6 p.m. March 4 at Tye Dye Everything, 527 S. Main St.; electronic submissions are due by Feb. 27.

A public vote will take place March 5 at the Winter Market in the 1912 Center; the winner will be chosen then and receive a $200 prize at the poster unveiling.
