Midhaven Harvest Feast

November 15, 2014
Midhaven

Skagit and San Juan Counties, WA

Autocrat: Lord Rodri Glynglas

Update: As of October 20th, we have received 125 pre-reservations. The event is now full. I am currently taking names for a waiting list in case of cancellations. - Rodri Glynglas

 

For any questions, pre-registration, or anything else please email the Autocrat, Lord Rodri Glynglas (thegreenglen@gmail.com). 

 

In the northwest of the known realm there lies a land of unrivaled beauty and bounty. Fields of green produce luscious fruit, tall grain, and support the steps of heavy, fat cattle. Mysterious figures roam the wide hills, dancing and singing, crafting fine wares, and bringing home fine trophies from their hunts. A land of green, of adventure and glory, joy and friendship.

 

In the middle ages, such were the words to describe the newfound vistas of Greenland. Unfulfillable boasts were used to entice hapless volunteers to assist in settling the northern island. In these modern middle ages, these same phrases describe the Shire of Midhaven, and all are invited to the annual Harvest Feast to witness the accuracy of the description for themselves. Music and song, dancing and fine food will leave no attendant disappointed.

 

After the three courses of the feast we will be holding our much anticipated Dessert Auction. This year, the Shire of Midhaven has determined that the funds raised from the auction will go towards another feast, at July Coronation 2015, to honor the outgoing King and Queen. Please bring something to contribute, be it small or wildly fabulous. We are requesting that attendees bring both full sized items and also smaller items suitable for children, we will be having select auctions specificially for the younger attendees, price ranges adjusted suitably.

 

In addition to the main Dessert Auction, our Chef, Etole Marchant, will be running his own auction. The prize? He and a member of his cooking staff will come to your house and cook a full meal in your kitchen. You provide the food, and he provides the culinary skill. He is offering ten such prizes, with a starting bid of $150.00 each. The money raised will be used to repair the event trailer of the Towne of Keypoynte, of which he is Mayor.

 

At the end of the feast and the auction, as the evening winds down, there will be dancing until they kick us out of the site!
