Artisan's Row includes live displays and hands-on demonstrations. The Artisan’s Row is a particularly wonderful opportunity for Arts and Sciences that are too messy or time-consuming for usual events. We are especially interested in woodworkers, blacksmiths, dyers, stone carvers, potters and any artisan who would avail themselves of a long weekend out of doors. Our village-like atmosphere will allow you to demonstrate, teach, and peddle your wares.

Offered by Serric der Grimmige & Lord Pippin a Bheithir. All brewing contest entries are to be presented to Troll upon arrival on site and must be kept behind the bar until the contest. Each bottle needs to be accompanied by the name of the item, the category (beer, wine, mead, cordial) and the name of the maker of said libation.

Note: Any unconsumed brewing entries must be removed from the site or they may be discarded after the competition.

Tell us a tale, about your best SCA experience, recite medieval verse, sing songs and entertain fellow SCAdians around a roaring fire.
