***Festival vending is no longer happening, but this page remains as documentation of what it was!***
The Wandering Swordsmen can provide a new and unique contribution to any festival or event, with both games and gear for attendees! We have provided great entertainment for both kids and adults at many festivals since 2013, including The Lake Eden Arts Festival, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, Lexington Avenue Arts and Fun Festival, The French Broad River Festival, Floyd Yoga Jam, Rooster Walk, The Mountain Sports Festival, Hot Springs Trailfest, Firefly Primitive Skills Gathering, Soulshine Farm Festival, Transformus, and 3 Days of Light Festival. We are continuing to expand our festival schedule and would love to add more large events all across the country, so any recommendations or invitations would be greatly appreciated!
