Event details

Editted to add:

Set up of tents/shades for the event will be Friday night (June 16th) after 5:00 pm.

This is Owlsherst's annual Demo event at the PennMar Irish Festival.  Our volunteers are given free admission to the festival, which features great music, food, and merchants.  This festival is very family-friendly and is easy to get to - only a few miles off I-83 in Shrewsbury, PA.

We are given a large amount of space to fill - come help us fill it!  We typically have a lot of fiber arts and food/cooking representation, plus decent scribal arts representation at this demo (but more is good!).  We welcome practitioners of all arts and sciences - we just ask that if your discipline involves fire or other safety hazards, please contact us in advance so we can clear that with the festival organizers.

We are especially seeking rattan, rapier and youth fighters for the martial arts demonstrations, and we also find ourselves short on marshals for rattan and rapier this year.

Return to The Markets at Shrewsbury with the gentle folk of Owlsherst to show the skills that we've enjoyed over the long dark winter.  Educate festival goers on the modern middle ages through working your craft, trivia games, or just letting children fight you in front of a crowd.  Enjoy traditional and contemporary Irish musicians, dancers, food, and a wide variety of vendors.

Site Opens: 10:30 AM
Site Closes: 9:00 PM
