The oriental ambassadors have arrived…

You are invited to join us for our 23rd Irish Feast and Ithra.  Our theme this year is “Invasion from the Orient”.  We are going to be exploring cultures from the other side of the oceans.  We are at a new site this year as well, so double-check the address. 

There will be Ithra classes in the morning and afternoon, as well as children’s equestrian, and other exciting activities.  During our evening Potluck Feast there will be bardic competitions for all to partake in.  As always, we will be choosing a King and Queen of Misrule, there will be a subtlety contest, and possibly dancing as well.

Potluck Contribution is divided by modern last name: A-F: Bread and Cheese; G-L: Side Dish/Vegatables; M-S: Main Dishes; T-Z: Deserts/Fruits.

We will have a kitchen this year for final preparations of your dishes.  Please bring a garbage bag to take home any dirty dishes, though there will be a dishwashing sink available for use.  Lunch will be available for a small fee.  Open flame candles are allowed.  Please note this is a DRY SITE!!
