Advertise in the Mutton & Mead Program Guide

Mutton & Mead is a fun-filled weekend, and a fundraiser for the Foodbank of Western Mass, and the Montague Grange.

Mutton and Mead, Montague's 2-day Medieval Festival (kinda like a Renaissance faire), will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 23rd and 24th, 2012. Last year we had about 2,300 visitors.

Montague WebWorks is a major supporter of the Mutton & Mead Medieval Festival, and owner Mik Muller thinks you should all be, too.

The festival provides a free 40-page Program Guide to all festival-goers as a thanks for their admission fee at the front gate.

Included in this program guide:

  • Festival map;
  • full day schedule;
  • listing of all the vendors and their locations on the grounds;
  • listing of all games and their location, as well as discounts for any fee-based games;
  • background information on the actors and their characters;
  • background information on the "outside acts" and historical demonstrators;
  • fun facts about the medieval period and the shire of Nottingham;
  • clues to the scavenger hunt;
  • coloring pages for the kids;
  • clothing patterns for those who may want to sew themselves something for next year;
  • lyrics to some of the music sung during the faire;
  • a page about local lodging, bars, pubs, and food and beverage establishments for festival goers to go visit after the faire closes.
  • details about the photo contest, and coupons for next year's gate fee.

The guide is thereby an indespensible reference for everyone attending the faire, as well as a keep-sake to take home. Your advertisement is guaranteed to be seen by everyone attending the festival. Advertisements that add a tinge of "medievalism" to bring them in line with the demeanor of the day will garner a chuckle from the faire-goer, and will be remembered.

Your advertising dollars will help make the program guide possible, and will go a long way to making the festival that much better. Thank you!
