Potluck lunch will run throughout the day.

There are picnic tables under the pavilion but we recommend you bring a chair to watch the fighting.  There will be plenty of room for pop-ups or pavilions.

This is a great event to bring friends and family who are interested in the SCA but have been intimidated by the cost of other events. 

The site is a state park.  There are a few paved paths leading to the bathrooms but much of the site is grass and the ground is uneven.

The park does permit dogs, please keep them leashed and clean up after them.

Site Opens: 10:00 am
Site Closes: 6:00 pm
