Between the stages the streets ("lanes") are lined with stores ("shoppes") and stalls where independent vendors sell medieval and Renaissance themed handcrafts, clothing, books, and artworks.
There are food and beverage vendors, as well as game and ride areas. Games include basic skills events such as archery or axe-throwing as well as other games of skill. Rides are typically not machine powered; various animal rides and human-powered swings are common. Live animal displays and falconry exhibitions are also commonplace.
