Event details

This year’s event will be a little bit of a twist on our classic day of learning and shenanigans.  We’re focusing on turning our eyes to the East (and we don’t just mean the East Kingdom).  This year’s schola will offer classes that focus on Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.  Our goal is to provide tracks for youth, newcomers, and even our veteran players. 

PiXiu’s Hunt – This treasure-focused Team Scavenger Hunt is open to all ages.

Arts & Science Display - Have you made something you would like to share but don’t necessarily want to enter in competition? We would love to have you display what you’ve been working on.  New and experienced players are encouraged to participate.  The more displays, the bigger the opportunity to help someone discover something new. 

Bardic Quest - Lady Isabelle has returned from her long travels overseas.  While there she longed for the music and stories of her friends.  She challenges all our would-be bards to bring their new “Old Favorite” to share.  This can be music or a story that you have discovered, rediscovered, or just wish to put your own spin on. 

If you would be interested in teaching or running a workshop we have indoor, outdoor, workshop, and virtual space.  Please contact Lizbette St Michael for more details.  (email address)
