Come join the Barony of Stierbach for a day of Shopping, Heavy and Rapier fighting, Shopping, Archery, and more Shopping. Make Holiday Faire your One Stop Shopping for all your 12th night must haves.
We are in two buildings again this year. One building will have merchants and the second building will have Arts and Sciences, a Silent Auction, a sitting area and fundraiser lunch by our Canton of Abhainn Iarthair. Plenty to do in between the shopping and more shopping.
If your Holiday shopping list has hard to find items, bring it Saturday, November 20, 2010. The merchants who travel to Holiday Faire, old and new favorites, travel to the far reaches of the Known World to bring the very treasures you search for.
There will be heavy and rapier fighting outdoors for both youths and adults. There will be the traditional outdoor target archery. We will also set up a thrown weapons range. And don’t forget the Annual Turkey Shoot!
Arts & Sciences Activities
The "American Hen"! (That's a turkey to us modern folk.)Use your creativity to incorporate the turkey in the art or science of your choice, including (but not limited to) pottery, glass, leather, scribal, embroidery, garb or even Turkey targets for archery.
