a Champion of Lions Gate.

For those of a more gentler nature, please come and join us as

nature, I invite you to participate in a competition to produce a
Loat in any medium. I would also invite all our artisans to come
and sell your wares.

Please bring a picnic lunch.

Never been to an SCA event?  Newcomers are welcome at this
and every event. Just do your best to dress medievally – a simple
T-Tunic is easy to whip up – and come out to the event. We will
have some loaner garb available if you don’t have anything.

Time: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Cost: $10/adult
