Event details
We have been invited back to do an all-day demonstration of medieval arts, crafts, and fighting, with special emphasis on hands-on demonstrations for children on June 8, 2019 (rain date June 9).  This will coincide with Farmingdale Fire Department Street Fair. 

Farmingdale Village is eager to have us show off our skills, and has offered us the use of the Village Green to display our skills to the surrounding neighborhood.  They will also push the demo within the school system and invite the surrounding neighborhood.  Fighters and fencers are encouraged to show their prowess (and show off their splendid armor), dancers are encouraged to display their fancy footwork, and artisans of all sorts are urged to both display their work and urged to give children (and their parents) HANDS-ON time to explore their crafts.

We are hoping to have enough fighters and fencers to hold tournaments with prizes.  Tournament participants will choose a child in the crowd to champion and will be given a favor (TBD) to give to them.  Token prizes will be given to the winners of the tournaments.

We have the use of the gazebo, and our 20X30 Green & White will be there for shelter, but pop-ups are also encouraged.  There is no feast, but we will have a potluck.  Østgarðr has a tradition of "bring something to share" at demos, and we will have beverages available.

Please send reservations to Nagashima Ichiro Ujimichi (seneschal@lionsend.eastkingdom.org) or post in the discussion area of the Facebook event, along with a brief description of what you intend to teach/display (and when, if it's not an ongoing thing, when you would be most comfortable teaching/displaying you craft).

Participants are asked to bring folding chairs, although we may have some available.
