Feast for the Bears



Feast for the Bears
February 28th, Shire of Stormsport
9am - 8pm
(Union City, PA)

It has been a long, cold Winter. As the Bear wakes from his slumber, it is now time to shake off the Winter sleep, and begin to prepare for the coming fighting season. Once again, the Shire of Stormsport invites all to attend the Feast of the Bears on February 28th. There will be plenty of heavy fighting with a double elimination tourney running right into our traditional bear pit. There will be room for fencing throughout the day for those who prefer the rapier arts. In addition, we will be providing some space for our youth fighters to come and test their skills. The Fighting will begin at noon.


The site is St. Teresa's Catholic Church, 9 Third Avenue, Union City, PA 16438, open from 9am to 8pm. The site is wet, but no open flames, please. Your autocrat for the day is Vladisla Nikulich (Matthew Granger, 419 Stafford ave, Erie PA 16508, mgranger1@gmail.com, 814-455-2486). Teachers and Merchants are welcome to contact the autocrat for space.

In an effort to foster youth and family involvement in the Society, we are hosting a Kids Kitchen at Bears Event. Our head cooks from Stormsport are Lady Evelyn (age 10), Lady Katherine (age 8), and Lady Alva (age 10), with guest cook, TH Lady Alethea Cowle (age 12). Children ages 4+ and their parent/guardian are invited to help us prepare the sideboard for the day. We will have kitchen prep jobs for all ability levels, with lessons on food safety and basic cooking techniques, all supervised by Ottilige von Rappoltsweiler.
