Event details


Many of the fine denizens of the East Kingdom screamed, "What happened to Tavern? Where is that wonderful event we always went to?" And our answer is, "It's back!"

Tavern returns in 2020.  And by returning, we're going back to the original tavern.  Enjoy a day of eating and drinking and game playing. 

Watch your purse!  There are thieves about!  For when you are out of gold coin, you'll be put to work in our kitchen, or you'll have to sing for your next mean for some charity (or, maybe tell a story or juggle or--you get it!).

This event is not intended for minors!

Site Opens: 10:00am, Saturday
Site Closes: 11:00am Sunday
