Come all, far and wide, and join in al-Barran's celebration of Saturnalia. The poet Catullus describes Saturnalia as the best of days, a time of celebration, visits to friends and gift giving. Join us in our feasting and reveling, be you Roman, Byzantine, Gaul, Briton, German, or any other person of good cheer. Come all, from the four corners and far reaches of the Empire, to join in our festivities!
There will be gaming in the tavern, and for the scholarly, a graffiti translation competition. There will be Middle Eastern dancing in the evening and music and revelry throughout the day. There will be some children's activities, including a mouse hunt. Craftsmen and merchants will be showing and selling their wares in our
traditional Midwinter Bazaar. There will be a feast in the Roman style of three bountiful and delicious courses of generous and (dare we hope?) epic proportions!
