Celebrated on February 1st, the feast of St. Brigid marks the beginning of spring in Ireland. It is a tradition to hang a St. Brigid’s cross on the door to protect your household from evil, fire & hunger
The Shire of Hauksgarðr invites you to join us as we look forward to spring with the Feast of St. Brigid! The winter has been long in Hauksgarðr. Come enjoy a day of good food and good company as we recover from a dreary winter with this lively potluck feast.
Cold winters inside lead to busy hands. Bring your A&S projects and join us by the fire in our Crafting Corner. Maybe you’ll learn a new skill, or pass along your knowledge, while enjoying some good company. Let’s have a “Winter work” show & tell. Bring anything you’ve been working on over the long winter…or Covid-times…to share with others. Completed or in-progress is fine, too.
Sitting around warm hearths this winter, veteran fighters have shared their wisdom with the new recruits. One such piece of wisdom is that sometimes all that stands between you and certain bludgeoning is a sturdy shield. With that in mind, we invite you to bring these shields for a contest that will showcase the shields as well as the fighters’ wisdom. Bring your shield that is “artfully decorated” or “impressively battered”. Contestants need to regale us with a tale of how the shield came to be battered, or the inspiration or story of the decoration. Whether it is a true story or not is up to you! Shields do not need to be fully functional to enter the contest, so feel free to bring your in-progress work.
The shire will provide all serving utensils and will have someone serving the food as per kingdom guidelines. Please be mindful of current health standards and bring food that has been safely handled & prepared. Kingdom suggests that all food brought from offsite be prepared wearing mask and gloves.
Please bring your own beverages and feast gear.
Please remember that some people have food allergies, so please provide an ingredient label for your dish. If it’s a period dish, please tell us a bit about it, too: Time period, region, etc., just for fun!
