Submit Now


This is a call to artists to submit their entries for the 45th Annual Moscow Renaissance Fair Poster Contest. Posters should reflect a whimsical, colorful celebration of spring, not necessarily the Renaissance period.


(Thanks to the Renaissance Fair Board for permission to post the 2016 Poster Winner)

Artists should bring posters to BookPeople at 521 S. Main Street in downtown Moscow between 12 - 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 3. There will be a public judging of the posters from 2 - 5 p.m.

The winning entry will be awarded a $200 cash prize, plus the poster will be displayed throughout the region and be featured on the cover of the Renaissance Fair program. The new poster will also be displayed at the Co-op in April along with the posters from past years.

Please visit for the rules and entry form.
