We’re looking forward to another year with a jam-packed merchant row and throngs of shoppers. We do everything we can to make your experience at NOWM pleasurable and profitable.
- The merchant area will once again be located on the Village Green, the shady area around the permanent pavilion just inside the main gate. This is also the location of all non-martial activities, and it is just steps away from the battlefield on the main road to the camping areas. A great location!
- The site opens officially at 3 PM on Friday. If you need an earlier setup, please contact the merchant coordinator. You must be completely set up and your vehicle parked by 10 AM Saturday. The site closes at 3 PM Sunday – everyone (staff included) must be off site by that hour. Activities will begin on Friday afternoon and evening; you are encouraged to open on Friday, and you are encouraged to stay open late on Saturday, when the pavilion will be the site of a bardic competition and bardic tavern, and to reopen Sunday morning if you wish. Note that Court takes place in the pavilion, and quiet hours must be observed during that time.
- Merchants may camp with their merchant tents – only one camping tent, please. There is a space provided in the merchant information sheet for footprint information. Note that the site rules do not allow campers or RVs – tent camping only.
