The Barony of Carolingia is sponsoring a family-oriented day of activities.

Spend the day sampling many of the enjoyable activities that the East has to offer in a family friendly, fun atmosphere.  Try something new, or show members of your family more about your favorite activity.

Some of the many activities planned include youth fencing, youth fighting, equestrian, archery, and thrown weapons for all ages, dancing, music, classes, games, and much more.  No prior experience needed for any of the activities! 

Some activities will have a small fee, and other activities require closed-toed shoes.

Young Artisans are encouraged to bring their projects for display in the youth A&S display in the Dayboard Hall.  Please make sure to include a card with your name and a little about the project, and pick it up no later than 5:00pm
