A Day with the Borgias – a festival in Renaissance Italy at the cross of the 15th and 16th centuries, featuring Delftwood’s 10th Baronial Investiture.
Please join the Barony of Delftwood on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at St Sophia’s Greek Orthodox Church, 325 Waring Road, Syracuse, NY 13224, as we celebrate the Investiture of Benedict Fergus atte Mede and Helene al-Zarqa’ as the 10th Baron and Baroness of Delftwood, and ease their Excellencies Edward Harbinger and Anastasie de Lamoure to their retired rest. The site opens to the public at 9:00am, closes to the public at 9:00pm, and is discreetly damp. There will be a church service held at 6:00pm in the main church. Please be courteous to those attending the service who may wander through our event.
The Borgia family would like to invite you to a feast, celebrating the elevation of their father, Rodrigo, as he becomes Pope Alexander VI! We all know that there has been some contention with the election for Pope; however, the Borgia family knows exactly how to keep the peace — or at least silence poisonous tongues. Enjoy a final repast to end a lovely day! We’re sure you’re on the list, because you are an honored guest. But then again — it might not hurt bringing your own taste-tester…
Enjoy a full day of fencing under the watchful eye of Baron Rian Gortyroyan! Decorate your feast table or come costumed to represent your favorite Sin! Wear your most sumptuous Italian, or embrace Sloth, and get “one more event” out of that ratty old garb! Limited merchant space is available, please contact the event steward.
Your event steward for the day is Baroness Jennet the Gentle jen[at]twcny.rr.com
