Holiday Faire

The wars are over for now and it has been a profitable season for all. The fighters are returning home after hard fought battles and they are returning with their bounty. The farmers have finished harvesting their summer crops and are taking a well-earned rest. Now is the time to come together and celebrate with festivities and shopping.

Merchants have replenished their inventories and are gathering in Stierbach for the festivities. Come spend the day shopping, visit with old and new friends, watch the martial activities, pick up those treasured Twelfth Night presents that can only be found here at Holiday Faire, enter into the arts and sciences competition and don't forget to place a bid or two at the silent auction!

We have grown where we are in two building again this year. One building will have all the merchants and the other will have arts and sciences, a silent auction, martial activities - armored combat and rapier fighting, Target archery, too. Plenty to do in between shopping and more shopping.

Martial Activities
There will be heavy and rapier fighting indoors and outdoor target archery for non-shoppers to fill their time while others shop.
