Site is being updated, so details will change over the next few weeks, including feast and class information.
Period garb and feast gear are required, but some loaner garb and gear will be available. The focus of this event is on period leisure activities.
This year we will have “stations” that will be open throughout the afternoon. Various artisans will have stations where you can see their products and learn more about how to make them. Games and other leisure activities will also have stations. You are encouraged to bring any projects or crafts you wish to share or work on.
The goal is a relaxed afternoon full of great conversation and camaraderie. Archery and Thrown Weapons will be available outside, weather permitting. And don’t forget your dancing shoes!
Our 3rd annual Rivenvale Brew Exchange will be taking place before feast. See below for details.
We will also be conducting a “Rummage Sale” to raise money for the shire. Bring an item(s) to donate and/or money to spend if you can.
Site opens at Noon and is wheelchair accessible.
