Faire time is fast approaching in North Texas, with Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie set to run each Saturday and Sunday and Memorial Day Monday from April 6 through May 27. And SRF can’t operate without workers.
So if you are looking for a weekend job, you’ll want to check out the SRF Job Faire Saturday, Feb. 23, at the festival’s main office at 2511 GM 66 in Waxahachie.
Job interviews will take place from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. that day to fill the part-time/seasonal jobs available during the eight weekends of SFR 2019. Scarborough Renaissance Festival is looking for “outgoing, energetic people, 16 and older,” to work in food and beverage sales, as wait staff, as restaurant hosts/hostesses, as restaurant/food service managers, in alcoholic beverage sales, as special event servers, in souvenir and ticket sales, as ticket takers/front entrance greeters, as exit gate personnel, in safety services, on the grounds crew, and as restroom attendants, kitchen help, cooks, dishwashers, exit surveyors, games personnel and more.
Many — but not all — positions require costuming.
For details and applications, go online to SRFestival.com. Applications should be completed prior to attending the Job Faire, and applicants are also asked to bring with them two forms of identification such as a valid driver’s license, state ID, Social Security card or passport.
Specific work hours will be discussed at orientation on Saturday, March 30. There will also be a “costume and dialect” class offered prior to orientation to determine costuming and to familiarize employees with the Renaissance terminology used at the festival.
