[ART] Andalusian Ball

The Barony of Arn Hold invites one and all to a celebration of life in Al-Andalus during the early Middle Ages at our annual Ball.   This year, we have added some new and exciting activities for your enjoyment.

Will there be dancing??? Why of course!  How about fighting?? You betcha!  PLUS a delectable feast presented to you by the wondrous Cook’s Guild of Arn Hold – all at the beautiful (and ‘wet’ ) Clubhouse Event Center in Boise.

Break out your dancing shoes and bring your fancy feast gear – you do not want to miss out on all of this fun, food and frolicking!

Our traditional Bard of Arn Hold Competition will be held during the scrumptious Feast, with dancing until late into the evening. The site is wet; there will be limited off-board seating available during the feast and a ‘best Themed table arrangement’ competition, sponsored by the Autocrat.
