Event details

Like Lyra, Artists and Scientists and Musicians alike all gather to share knowledge and revelry among the A&S and Bardic displays.  Like Perseus, Fighters raise your swords and shields to melee upon our battlefield. 
Like the Woodsman's Axe, thrown weapons combatants choose your weapons and cast them toward victory in our Thrown Weapons championship. 
Like Orion, rapier combatants raise your foils in glorious combat together. 
Amidst it all, our brightest shining stars - the youths of our beloved East Kingdom - cast their eyes to the heavens to marvel at the Harvest Moon as it waxes over our Northern lands. 
Join us, all, to lift our eyes and our hearts towards the star-studded heavens in celebration of another beautiful year spent together in friendship and fellowship.

From Bethel, Berlin, Montpelier, Burlington, Montreal, and similar points West:

Please consult a map to find your best route to pick up Route 26 South west of the towns of Norway and Oxford, Maine.  For most folks coming in from Northern New Hampshire and Vermont, you’ll want to cross the Maine/NH border on Route 2 and pick up Route 26 South in Bethel, Maine, but there are other possible routes as well, depending on your starting point.

Follow Route 26 South through the Western Maine towns of Bryant Pond, Paris, Norway, and into the town of Oxford.  About two miles after you pass through the business district of the town of Oxford, you’ll come to traffic lights which mark the entrance to a Wal-Mart (on your right).  Pass straight through the lights, continuing South on Route 26.  1.8 miles after the Wal-Mart, you’ll pass the Oxford Plains Fun Park on your right, closely followed by Oxford Plains Speedway on your left.  About 1.7 miles after the speedway, turn left onto Route 121 North (a Citgo station marks the corner of this intersection, on your left).  Follow Route 121 North, into the town of Mechanic Falls.  After 4.4 miles, you will arrive at a 4-way intersection with a traffic light.

Turn left at the light (keeping the Cumberland Farms on your left) onto Route 124 North.  Follow Route 124 North into the town of Minot.  4.4 miles from the light you will come to a strange intersection, which is marked as the junction of Routes 124 and 119.  Turn right at the Yield sign and then immediately left at the T intersection (heading away from the church), staying on Route 124 North.

Continue a further 2.3 miles on Route 124 North, into the town of Hebron.  Hebron Pines Campground is clearly marked, on your left.
