The Feast of John Barleycorn – John Barleycorn goes to war!
Greetings from Wilhelm and from Oliver to all who see this message!
We are in the final rounds of preparation for this year`s Feast of John Barleycorn and it looks to be grand.
This year`s theme is (as the event title indicates) all things of a warrior nature. We will have many opportunities for Armor and rattan starting with a Friday night torchlight tourney through several Saturdayevents highlighted by Sir Edwards Unbelted Challenge. We have some really fun fencing tournaments, thrown weapons (with the addition of distance throws with javelins) and of course archery. There will be children’s heavy combat (details still being confirmed but we may also have Friday night for them as well!)
We will be having all of the traditional A&S with some new or recently added items. There will be dance and a brewing contest. We are continuing the recently added A&S display and calligraphy class and are adding a gaming area for period games. (A party without games of chance? Never again!)
There will also be much for the youths to do…
And garbing options for newcomers…
And amazing food…
(*Taking chance to breathe.) The event links follow…
The East Kingdom link…
and the local site with much more detail… (all of the above is or will soon be described online.
There is still more to be added to the local website so feel free to ask us if you have questions or look back at the site in the next days as we add more. The feast is only about 1/3 sold but it goes fast once we start getting over the pennsic hangover so don`t miss your spot!
