Event details

Greetings from the Shire of Owlsherst.  We offer you a respite from the harshness of winter to a warm and joyful gathering at the annual Owlsherst Country 12th Night!

Among the day's activities will be fighting tournaments officiated by Lord Sean (Youth), Master Wulfgar (Heavy Combat), and Lord D'Orion (Rapier).

Those who pursue Arts and Sciences are welcome to share their latest projects.  In the afternoon there will be the opportunity for various activities:  music and singing led by Mistress Linette, board games led by Lady Mori, children's games, and dancing.  Preceding the afternoon's activities will be the anointing of the 'King or Queen of Misrule' who will provide us with many whimsical decrees.

To end the occasion there will be a sumptuous German feast provided by Lady Orlaithe and the Owlsherst Cooks Guild.  Please contact Lady Orlaithe for any dietary concerns (2 weeks in advance, please). 

Come one and all!  Make your reservation with Lady Fabrisse or on Paypal.
