Heritage Fest Demo Update – Setup Time Change

From the Deputy Chatelaine, Lord Ronan:

The time for setting up Heritage Fest tomorrow has changed! Setup will now begin at 9:30am at our designated spot on the map below. (We’re listed on the map below as the Historical Re-enactors.) The front gate at 4734 Butler St. will close at 10:00am so if you need to unload anything from a car make sure you get there before that time. Anyone coming later can still use the volunteer parking lots by entering through the 49th Street gate also noted on the map. 

There will be 4 tables provided for us to use. I’d like two of them to go in the tent for Calligraphy and Illumination, one of them to be used for A&S displays led by the Fiber Guild (including non-fiber art as well), and one to be used for a miscellaneous display of martial gear.

Please contact me with what you will be bringing. I still need tablecloths to cover the tables (6ft long), framed scrolls for display, and any other art you’d like to show off. We will have a few chairs provided to us as well, but you may want to bring your own for comfort.

Sorry for the delay in getting this update out. There was some last minute information sent out and an issue with my contact info listed in the blog, but all that should be fixed now. Thank you for your patience!

As always, send me a message if you have any more questions.

See you all tomorrow!

Memorial Day Parade – Join Us Monday Morning!

Join the Barony (and our most favorite mercenaries, Clovenshield) as we march in the most charming neighborhood parade in Pittsburgh! Spend the morning with us as we march in the Lawrenceville Memorial Day parade, ending in the historic and beautiful Allegheny Cemetery.

Garb/armor required, because we are showing off to thousands of east-end Pittsburghers. Let’s drum up some new folks while strutting our stuff in style! Clovenshield is again leading the parade logistics, and will be providing the gorgeous float, for those who wish to ride and wave.

Fighters, you will never be more lauded and appreciated… come out and flaunt your skills for the not-yet-newbies. Not a fighter? Great, come walk or ride, waving at babies and blowing kisses to veterans – this demo is a blast!

If parading isn’t your style, we have fun for you, too! At the end of the parade is a community picnic, with food trucks and entertainment, and the Barony has a table! Help Lord Ronan talk to interested folks there!

Need more reason to come? Ice cream at the end is on the Baroness!

Plan to start staging at 9am. Park at the end of the parade and take the free shuttle to the staging area. The parade ends by your car! Read more about the details here:

Deep thanks to Lord Yingerz and Lady Kat Fixis for arranging our participation and the float, and to Lord Ronan for agreeing to set up the table at the community picnic.
