Kingdom of Atlantia 12th Night
January 13- 15, 2017
Barony of Sacred Stone
The Spanish court of Isabelle and Ferdinand is one of the richest in the world. Columbus has returned from his voyages and has brought treasures from new lands. Their most gracious Majesties of Spain have invited their friends from near and far to celebrate their good fortune and to join them for 12th Night festivities and the la Danza de Oro (the Dance of Gold) ball.
Beautiful art adorning the walls, fatal intrigue in the courts, ladies and lords alike in rich velvets and silks, a rowdy tavern filled with songs and games of chance, a grand feast filled with delicious and exotic dishes, and dancing into the night.... all this and more awaits you at 12th Night.
Arts & Sciences Activities: Garb Runway Challenge.
Come one, come all and see what finery the populace of the Kingdom of Atlantia is wearing! Contestants interested in the challenge can sign up at the A&S table starting at 10:00 am. To enter, each contestant must present themselves in the outfit or have a model outfitted in your entry. Documentation is encouraged, but not necessary. All that is required is a full frontal photo of the outfit and a short description. Contestants or their models will then display their fabulous garb creations as they walk the runway for the judges and the populace as the description is read. Judges will then question each contestant to ask about details of the garment. The winner will be announced in evening court. Sponsored by The St. Anne's Guild of Clothiers.
Curiosities of the New World

Bring forth your finest treasures that are inspired by the gold, birds, plants and animals from the new world.

Our open display is a place that you can show off your works in progress, your favorite creations and your biggest inspiration. No pressure, no judging, just lots of oohs, aahs and squees! A place for open mediums, your creativity is the only limit. Whether you are just getting started or you’ve been perfecting your craft for decades, we encourage you to join us so that everyone can see your work.
Illuminating Family Pride.
