Midsummer's Twilight Tourney

description:
Come join Buckston-on-Eno for a tribute to Don Quixote: a day of chivalry, revelry, and a celebration of Spanish culture! Not only are we tilting at windmills, we are turning the whole event upside down! There will be activities and contests sure to please everyone - but be warned that the feast will be at midday and the fighting in the twilight hours!

NOTE: If you are planning to bring a child not your own to the event, please review the youth information! We cannot allow children on site without the proper forms!
