[DRA] Garden of Earthly Delights

Let it be known that on the eighteenth of April, there will be a Faire to celebrate the arts and artisanal crafts, and this faire will be held in the lord baron's holding known by many as the Pfaelzer Schloss. The lord Baron will be there to welcome all and sundry to this demesne, but especially those who wish to share their and display their myriad woorkes.

After the day of sharing and learning, there will be a revelry--- games, laughter and dancing in the customary fashion! The lord Alexander declares that there shall also be a feast and that all who wish to participate bring some edible bounty to share with all, that we may have an even grander feast. Said festivities shall begin near the middle of the day, that all may have time to make the journey, and of course guests are welcome to slumber in the Great Hall should they have imbibed too much wine or should it become too late to make the journey home!

Faire: This is a day to display your works, whether finished or not, to share your knowledge. We are not only looking for perfection--- we want beginner level work, all the way to master works! No competition, only sharing and learning. Artisans will sit with their projects, working on an unfinished one, etc., and people can admire, examine, inquire about them, etc. (Artisans may also, of course, get up and examine other people's work). No formal classes. If a spontaneous class breaks out, wonderful!

Please contact the Lady Fiona Wiggins, the steward of the Faire, if you wish to display, or if you have any questions: cindypeterson_mspete@yahoo.com

Food: br>We will be providing stew on Friday evening, lunch on Saturday, a feast consisting of a blend of hot and cold dishes on Saturday evening, and breakfast on Sunday morning. We would ask that people bring a medieval(-esque) dessert to share.

Dancing: No experience necessary, all dances will be taught!

Site opens: April 17, 18:30. Site closes: Sunday, April 19, noon. 100 person site limit.

Crash space on site. Bring Own Bedding. No showers on site. Crash space on Saturday will be in an unheated part of the castle (very limited heating sleeping available for people with health issues. Please plan appropriately (will still be warmer than sleeping in a tent at Double Wars). If you need extra bedding because you are coming from afar, please let event steward know.
