There will also be a chess tournament, and all attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite medieval and medieval-themed games. The feast will be a build-your-own sandwich board, with varieties of vegetables, meats, cheeses, breads and crackers, salads, and more.

Games and Dance Update!
Mistress Thea Northernridge and Master Thomas Brownwell will return to Starkhafn for Games and Dance and fun. Mistress Thea will facilitate lampwork beads, but cannot demonstrate because of her flammable cast. She will have some demonstration sites available for viewing and can answer questions. She will be presenting the One True Pattern. This pattern is easily adjustable for many types of garb and can be altered to fit almost anyone. Please bring note paper and a writing instrument, and fabric for a mock up pattern if you wish. THL Rekon of Saaremaa will be a new guest this year, bringing repousse, intaglio, reliquary, and her 50 year displays.

Master Thomas will be leading Dance! The facility has a dance studio, so dance is in a separate space. No worries about outside noise or stepping on people.

Come join Starkhafn for a fun and educational day!

Parking is available in three lots. There is a lot immediately adjacent to the center on W. Washington Ave, on Twin Lakes Drive (the west side of the park), and the main parking lot for Lorenzi Park also on W. Washington Ave. Parking is free.
