Eat, Drynk and be Merry!
Spend a fun-filled day at the Festival. You'll be hard-pressed to pass by one of our kitchens or pubs without sampling something delicious - usually served on a stick! Hearty soups, sandwiches, corn on the cob, meat pies, fish and chips, and far too many tempting decadent desserts are the fare of the Faire. But the ultimate Renaissance treat is the mighty Smoked Turkey Legge! Tipping the scales at 1 1/2 pounds each, these are a meal unto themselves!
Hard-hitting full armored Combat!
