Event details

We are holding our 5th annual demo / event at the Great Falls Balloon Festival again this year so that we may introduce the SCA to approx 100,000 festival attendants over the course of the weekend.  While the festival resides in Ravensbridge it draws people in from all over New England.  We are reaching out to you to see if you are willing and able to assist us in putting on a great large scale demo in Auburn, ME.  The Great Falls Balloon Festival is a weekend-long celebration featuring hot air balloons, food and entertainment. 

This is a large scale event/demo showcasing a good portion of what the SCA has to offer.  We want to make the best impression on the public.  Please bring your pavilions, your finery, your standards, and banners. 

This is a camping Demo.  We will be erecting a living medieval village for the public to walk through.  This has been a huge hit each year and are planning to expand upon it this year.

The Demos:
Thrown Weapons
Archery on display only.
Schedule of demos to come.

We will also have an Artisan's Row, an Information Point, and a need for "Roving Chatelaines." We are expanding our children's activities and will have a photo booth which we will need volunteers to help us with these two exciting additions . 

--Additional Information--
Service animals are allowed.
Fires only in raised structures only.
For those that are mobility challenged, the grounds are fairly flat but very spacious; there is an ample amount of walking.

Site Opens: 12:00 pm Friday
