The site is a private campground with lawns ringed by forest. This site is so nice it’s worth just coming and hanging out. You can camp in your tent or sleep in one of the primitive cabins on-site. There are showers and flushies. Mowed fields provide plenty of room for melees, heavy fighting, archery, and thrown weapons. Two rustic buildings on site provide indoor space for workshops and a spectacular feast. In case of bad weather, fighting will be moved indoors. The site is dripping wet.
There will be a juggling workshop and a theater workshop that will run at different times so you can do both. We are planning creative crafts and activities for children and youth. Lunch at a reasonable price, merchants, and feast are all on-site, and everything is within easy walking distance. Wrap up the day with A Beastly Feast and then join the bardic circle at the fire ring.
