Horns sound and drums roll, banners dance on the breeze, Chevaliers parade in armor shining and merchants call their wares. Mummers prance, jesters grin, laughter swells like the seas, Archers shoulder their quivers full and music fills the air. Juggler's entrance, food delights, excitement buzzes like the bees, Fencers flash their blades dazzling and little children stare. Come one, come all, Gather for the opening of the greatest event of the fall days

- A&S classes as part of the Faire ambiance;
We will build the town square next to the onsite Pavilion building this year so the Fair A&S classes and the Artisans Row can be closer to the main events.

We are looking for people to show, Cheese making, Hats/headwear, Pottery, Candlemaking, Tailoring/clothing, Basketmaking and any other art you would like to showcase.
- The Artisans Row will again be available to show off the talented artists of this Kingdom You can set up a workshop for the whole weekend, instead of just an hour or two, and those interested can stop and participate and learn the crafts demonstrated. Willing Artisans needed!
- Master Rhys may be returning, as well as the Caerthen woodworkers, leatherworkers and Calligraphy Guilds. The Caer Galen Fiber Guild plans on being there with hands on spinning, carding, weaving and a variety of hands on techniques for wool fibers.

Shine up your helms, make your banners, and get your heraldic garb together! There will be several contests for the best heraldry display, for individuals and households, and for the best display of Kingdom, Baronial, Shire, Canton , or etc….. Colors and devices. Make something to show your pride in your Kingdom! Make your campsite a showpiece, another contest is how much pageantry does your camp display; show off your household or personal colors.
If you have an Inn that you have run in the past and would like to set it up here please contact me, I am planning to coordinate and locate all the Inns into one area of the “Town”. Are you a Merchant? Want to be part of this? Contact the autocrats or see web site for further info.
Pets must be on a leash at all times and picked up after. This is a heavily wooded area so check often on Fire restrictions, they will be updated on the web site as the summer progresses, all fires must be off the ground in containers, a fire extinguisher near by and someone from the camp present at all times when the fire is lit. Any unattended fires will be put out and the container confiscated by the Autocrats till the end of the event. (Groveling and bribes may affect getting them back, at the whim of the Autocrats) Bring your wood, no gleaning of the wood on site. Torches may be allowed at the whim of the fire restrictions. Alcohol in period containers only, no glass bottles and the age limit will be enforced. Since we are right next to the town of Elizabeth and have neighbors on both sides of the park, a noise curfew will be set for 12:00am (midnight). It may be later on Saturday depending on the park ranger, I will check with him.
If you are bringing along a minor for whom you're not the said minor's legal guardian or parent please, bring with you (or send with your minor, if he is going with someone else), a notarized Medical Authorization which can be found at http://sca.org/docs/treatminor-notary.pdf
Above is not all-inclusive list of documents needed; it is just a reminder for the Medical Authorization. Please, make sure any other documents or waivers required by SCA inc and/or Outlands event policies are also provided for any attending minors.
