Event details

The crops have been gathered in and winter is coming.  The feasting shall commence.  Let’s hunt the boar and not let the wolves steal our children.  Come visit us in the land of castles and mountains.  Come find out how to do things the way the people of Deutchland do.  Let’s sing and play games and tell sagas of the runes and tales of Woden.  Come and join the merriment of things the Norsemen and Germanic tribesmen enjoyed.  Children are very welcome.  There is the Epic Thor Hammer Toss, the True Quest for the Runes, the Boar Hunt and German table games.  There are saga story exhibitions and stories from the Storyteller.
