Feasting

We will be doing our celebration and feast on Saturday evening!  Dress in your finest fabrics with your fanciest bling!  Period feast gear  is required to participate (esp. drink containers) 


 Come prepared with a couple of things that you might want to say at feast. Too short and you'll have to go again, too long and the archers get you...


.  Due to the primitive nature of the site, we cannot accommodate food allergies or special preparations.  If you need special food, please bring it.

There are no costs to attend this event, but donations are welcome to help cover expenses. 


  

We hold an auction before feast that is the main source of funds used for site maintenance and improvement. Everyone is asked to consider bringing a quality reenactment item for addition to the auction. This allows us to keep these events free. Please be generous with donations and bids.
