Blatha An Oir Candlemas 2018

The Barony of Blatha An Oir invites you to our traditional mid-winter event on February 10th, 2018.

The day's activities will include a Swap Meet, Baronial Court, a Pot-Luck Feast, and A&S Classes and Activities. 

Enclosed flame candles and festive table decorations are encouraged. Please bring your own tablecloths to fit standard 6-foot rectangular banquet tables. Alcoholic beverages are allowed (in period containers please). An open Gaming table will be provided. Bring your tabletop games to share.

Tables and a garment rack will be provided for your Swap Meet items. Please put your name (seller) and the price on each item. Financial transactions, barter, etc. are strictly between the buyer and the seller. There is a large parking lot at the facility, so we have plenty of room for you to bring vehicles and trailers for sale. All items not sold or given away must be removed prior to resetting the tables for the feast.

Event Facebook page:

Due to the Banquet Permit requirement for a guest list, please send an email to Annaka (alphamike99 at yahoo dot com) with the SCA Names and Mundane names of those in your party, including youth. This will also help us plan the food. Liking or saying you are interested in the event on the Facebook page is nice but does not get you on the guest list. Pay at the Door.
