HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Hear ye, job seekers!

The Texas Renaissance Festival will hold a two-day Job Faire on Saturday, Sept. 8 and Sunday, Sept 9. before it kicks off at the end of the month.

The festival is looking to fill more than 500 positions. During the faire, independent vendors will interview people for positions including sales of food and merchandise, food prep, games and rides and more.

If you land a gig, be prepared to look the part. Employees will be required to dress in costume and speak the King's English, as well as work nine consecutive weekends.
