Maypole

Druim Doineann

Port Angeles - Clallam & Jefferson Counties, WA

Autocrat: karl marcus wolfgang III

Maypole is the Shire of Druim Doineann’s annual public demonstration and celebration of the coming of Spring. We will be hosting the event at the Clallam County Fairgrounds in Port Angeles, as we do every year. We are using the west side of the fairgrounds, so our entrance will be the yellow colored gate, the Yellow Gate is located on South L St, between the airport and the fairgrounds.

Shire website with event info - Druim Doineann

The site opens Friday, May 4th at 9:00 am for vendors and 10:00 am for campers. We are open to the public on Saturday, May 5th ( Cinco De Mayo) from 10:00 – 6:00. Site closes at 6:00 pm, Sunday, May 6th.

This is our public demo, we respectfully request that all mundane items be stowed away the whole day of Saturday as the camping area is not closed from the public eye.

We have scheduled our Heavy, Rapier, Archery and Thrown Weapons Championship, this will indeed be a grand day of fighting and fun. The biggest addition to this wonderful event will be a York Range, yes that is correct, there will be a YORK shoot.  You can find the details on the above linked shire website or in the schedule below.  Unfortunately there will NOT be any equestrian activities this year.  (Volunteers please contact the event steward at dieshankarl@gmail.com)  

Bards are encouraged to perform all day. Bard rocks will be handed out at Gate, if you like what you have heard from the bard, gift them a bard rock.   We will end the public demonstration portion of the event with a dance around the Maypole! Bring your drums to pound out a beat or beat your feet and have a merry time weaving the ribbons!

Vendors Registration is now closed. 

 

Camping - We have plenty of camping space for all. Camping registration for large groups and RV’s is now CLOSED.

Garbage cans will be available, but pack out what you can, please.

The site does NOT allow for our four legged friends, please make arrangements to leave them at home.

The site is on the west end of the Clallam County Fairgrounds. Gas and charcoal fires are preferred and all fires must be at least 18” off the ground. The site also has a public restroom and working showers, so bring plenty of quarters! Please leave the premises in like or better condition so we can come back next year.  

Please be aware this public demo will be held on a county property, we would like to remind everyone that the site is DISCREETLY damp. We encourage the use of period containers.
