We invite you once again to plan your pilgrimage to the Annual Festival for the Passing of the Ice Dragon.
The event will be held March 30, 2013 at the Connecticut Street Armory, 187 Connecticut Street. Buffalo NY 14201.
The Festival of the Passing of the Ice Dragon is steeped in tradition, pageantry, martial and gentle arts. We will be featuring the traditional 'Pent' contest to highlight the works of the talented artisans and scholars of Aethelmearc and beyond! For those of a more martial bent, we invite you to participate in our grand fencing or heavy tournaments.
When you need a break, be sure to visit the games room downstairs for a dart tournament, music, dancing and table games.
Or if you prefer, simply take in the sights and sounds of the day from several public galleries while enjoying a magnificent
assortment of tasty treats from our day-board. The lower halls will be filled with Merchants while around the balcony
our Salon contest invites you to show off your skill at decorating, hosting and showing off your finest apparel, accessories and style.
