This is no ordinary temp job. You won't be filing paperwork or filing. Now is your chance to be bawdy, to wear the clothes you normally only see in costume dramas, to add some flair to your life.
Yes it's that time of year again and to make it all happen, the Texas Renaissance Festival is in the hiring mode. On Saturday and Sunday, September 12-13, the festival now in its 41st year will hold a job fair on its 55-acre festival grounds in Todd Mission, TX. The vendors and artisans looking to set up shop there this fall need extra help to make it all run.
If you've ever wanted to be among the hawkers or sell food or merchandise or be in charge of the games and rides (and more) now's your chance.
“Texas Renaissance Festival has been a job creator and business incubator for going on 41 years,” said General Manager Terre Albert in a press release. “This is the time of year when we welcome people who are looking for seasonal and part-time work in a fun, interactive environment for eight weekends in the fall. It’s an opportunity to have fun, make new friends and enjoy everything the festival has to offer.”
