Peasant’s Revel

The Guild hosts an annual event known as Peasant’s Revel.  This event usually takes place on a Saturday in July.

An ideal first event for people new to medieval re-creation, it is also a fun day for returning attendees. The event features down-and-dirty peasant games, including those authentic medieval favorites: the fritter-carry race, the wet-rag-on-a-stick dance, and the spit-in-the-bucket relay.

There is also dancing, socializing, pastimes for children, and – we believe – the only cheese rolling done outside of England.  The event closes with an outdoor meal of bread and cheese and a hearty soup cooked on-site by “Team Soup”.
