Festival of Light

January 31, 2004
Shire of Dragon’s Mist
Tualatin, OR

Beyond the darkness of winter, there is an oasis of light and
warmth, a hope-filled celebration welcoming the return of
sunlight and promise of spring. The Shire of Dragon’s Mist
invites you to journey with us to 15th-century
Cataluna for The Festival of Light, a feast of Catalonian
cuisine, and a celebration of the awakening of the earth with
companionship, entertainment and joy.

The 15th century was a golden age of Catalan
literature and lyric poetry. Join our Poetry Competition,
Games Tournament, and classes; enjoy troubadours, jongleurs,
a magus for children, rapier appreciation, storytelling and
Spanish dance.

We are also pleased to offer an ithra-credit class: Basic
Heraldry. This is an ithra “core class,” and it also
satisfies a College of Pages requirement—ages 12 and older
are welcome to sign up.

Based on Renaissance Catalonian feasts and following the
advice of the Libre de Sent Sovi, the feast will be in three
courses: “From the spit, from the pot, and divers sweets and
wafers.” Staged performances and awarding of prizes will
entertain and delight between courses.
