Celebrate the arrival of spring and join the friendly folks of the Shire of Lyndhaven in feast and merriment. This is the fifth annual Feast of Fools. There will be food in plenty, and entertainment for the entire family during and after the feast.

If the weather permits, and there is no snow for sledding, we will have this site to ourselves the whole day, and there will be fighting outside, starting at 3pm, marshaled by Lord Isard. If it is snow there is a wonderful hill for sledding.

The evening's activities will kick off with a display of medieval arts and science projects and then a Boffer-making class for kids and parents. This will be followed by a non-contact introductory class on the historical sword fighting techniques of Joachim Meyer taught by Lord Isard. The class will be open to all ages, and no experience is required. This will be followed by Feasting Merriment, and the
crowning of the King or Queen of Fools.
