Flight of the Falcon - St. David's Market Day and Fair
August 26, 2017
Canton of Aire Faucon
Open to the Public -- As a new day begins, our little borough awakens to a Market Day and Fair called to celebrate the bountiful harvest. Artisans and vendors from near and far flock to the market to display their wares, bring excitement and anticipation of a day of delights.
The Fair also brings with it the extra spectacle of fighters showing their prowess. From miles away, visitors flock to see what the day will bring. Some bring business; some come to watch and cheer! As the day unfolds, all can discover treasures for the eyes, ears and palate.
Great for newcomers, this event focuses on activities occurring in a small medieval pop-up market town on fair day. Townspeople and visitors share the sights, sounds and smells during a typical day. It costs nothing to look, aka there is no admission fee
Admission: $0 Feast: $7/person, max feast = 70*
Come and behold the wonders of war and peace in the Middle Ages! Need help with what to wear? We can help! Contact the Gold Key. Contact the Gold Key. Gold Key
*As customary for this event, feasts spots may be sponsored for newcomers so they can fully enjoy the day. Sponsors are welcome to pay for one more feast spot than they need to contribute.

Merchanting Information: Merchants are the life-blood behind a popup market day. Please continue to check back as we add vendors and merchants. Itâ€™s our pleasure this year to work with our merchants to help them sell commissions in advance, just as it would have been done in the Middle Ages - they will have the chance to display their amazing craftsmanship for the day before commissions are collected by their rightful owners!
Weâ€™ll be giving our populace and newcomers a chance to recognize their favorite merchant display of the day. That merchant will be awarded a special prize during court!
