Midwinter's Feast: Shakespearean Celebration
Barony of Adiantum (Eugene, OR)
Saturday, January 19, 2008
Toward the end of the 16th century, England was ruled by Queen Elizabeth and a new playwright by the name of William Shakespeare was becoming quite well-known. Please join us for our annual Midwinter's Feast as we celebrate all the sumptuous bounty this era had to offer, both in food and entertainment! A dazzling display of gastronomic delights awaits you, including vegetarian options, and we are gathering the best performers from throughout the Summits to regale us with song, story, and dance! And, of course, there will be much dramatic performance, both taken from and inspired by the works of the Bard himself.
Although the feast and its entertainment will have the theme of Elizabethan England, guests of all time periods are most certainly welcome, and we invite all to join us for the Artisan's Retreat. This was very popular last year, and we are again inviting Laurels and artisans from all over to join us and share their arts. Arts and sciences of many different time and places will be displayed and shared, and we will also have representatives from the other branches of the Peerage to answer questions and share what they do.
Other activites include the Bardic Bower, a chess tournament (with a chocolate chess set as the prize), Adiantum's A & S championship, and more!
There is no preregistration, but if you are planning on attending the feast, please contact the autocrat and make sure your name is on the list. We are limited to 100 seats for the feast, so reserve your space early!
Site fee is $18.00 for the day, including feast, for all ages. Attendance for day only, no feast, is $15.00 for adults, $10.00 for children 5-11. Children 5 and under are admitted free. Lunch will be available for an extra $5.00 per person. There is a nonmember surchage of $3.00 in in effect. Please make all checks payable to Barony of Adiantum, SCA, Inc.
