[MID] Brendokenfest 2009

The Barony of Brendoken cordially invites you to attend Brendokenfest 2009, to be held April 25 at the Tuscarawas County Fairgrounds in Dover, Ohio.

Plans are underway for a full day of fun including armoured and rapier combat, equestrian activities, arts and sciences [Arts and Sciences, a broad term covering the many aspects of creating the things people needed in everyday life in the Middle Ages.

This event will also include Brendoken's baronial championship competitions, but the event is a regular event and not just of interest to the Brendoken populace.

After a day of fighting, shopping, and fun of all sorts, enjoy a themed 15th Century English feast prepared by Giles fitz Alan and his team.
