All Fool's

April 05, 2014

Bend, Jefferson, Deschutes, & Crook Counties, OR

Autocrat: Annábla Martyn aka Nai

Join Central Oregon's Shire of Corvaria as we Come together and celebrate All Fool's on the 5th of April 2014.

All Fool's has been celebrated since the second century. Because the weather had most likely turned fair by this time, martial sporting events were often held. Among the most popular were archery and quarterstaff contests (quarterstaff's were eight-foot poles that combatants used to "break the heads" of their opponents). Other traditional observances for the feast included the fools parade, where revelers disguised themselves with costumes and masks and paraded through the town or village, demanding entrance into homes. Not even the homes of the great and powerful could be shut to the fools parade, and once inside, they would demand food and drink. This is not unlike the Halloween custom of trick or treating. All Fool's also traditionally marked the beginning of the spring planting season. (Diehl & Donnelly; Medieval Celebrations, Stackpole books 2001. p 9)

This year we will have Performer's, Food, Silly Combat, Games and More!
