We will have lots and lots of room for Merchants, sitting, watching and playing area. So please come and sell your wares, sit and relax, socialize, work on projects enjoy the Tourney and most of all have fun.
We will have someone selling a small lunch during the day. In the evening we will have a wonderful feast. This year we will have roasted pig, which, Lionsdale is providing as the main dish. So please bring a side dish for potluck, salad, vegetables, bread, ect. enough to feed 10 people.
This year it has been decided that we will be having the Lionsdale Arts and Science Championship at WinterÃ¢??s Tourney.

Entries will be displayed for perusal. Gentles may vote for the best work that they feel should win the Championship. Voting shall be done by Gentles placing a favor (1 dry bean), which, will be provided, in the entrants corresponding box.
We will have a Pied Piper during the day. (not a baby sitting service).
