Yule

December 7, 2019 @ 9:00 am 9:00 pm

Co-hosted by Barony Beyond the Mountain and Bergental

Greetings, one and all!  As the days grow cold and the North wind begins its relentless pursuit, it’s time to seek the warm welcoming halls of good neighbors and friends.  The Barony Beyond the Mountain and our Northern neighbor Bergental, have, once again, combined our efforts to provide such a haven to all who would seek it!  We welcome you to join Their Majesties and Their Highnesses in our hall for a day of feasting, marshal activities, competitions, music, dancing, games, ceremony, and respite.  Merchants are also most welcome!

Their Excellencies of the Barony Beyond the Mountain and Bergental are calling for a court of color and would be delighted by seeing all arrayed in their finery of green. 

Note the site will be open for set-up from 5:15 pm Friday to 8:00 pm and from 7:00 am Saturday.  Tear-down ends at Midnight Saturday (Or, hopefully, MUCH earlier!) If you are on site after feast, thank you for helping to clean up!
