Greetings and welcome to the website for the East Kingdom Fifty Year Celebration to be held in Schaghticoke, NY June 28-July 1, 2018!
I am Duchess Avelina Keyes and I am happy to be serving as Event Steward for this event. We hope to offer a wide variety of activities as well as showcasing the history and talents of the people of the East. We are looking forward to a variety of folks attending this event, from old timers to new. And, people from when Drachenwald, Atlantia and Aethelmearc were Principalities of the East.
We will need a bunch of help to run this event. Please keep checking back. If there is an area or department you would like to help out in, check those pages and contact the department heads directly to offer your services.
One of the big plans for this event is to have Halls of History where there will be booths showing off the history of the East, along with her daughter Principalities and all of our local groups. Please visit the History page for more details. We will also be having a Memory Garden. Here we will have tributes to those members of the East Kingdom who have passed with a small seating area for quiet contemplation.
The Artisans of the East have big plans to show off the projects they have been working on as well as teaching some of the skills they have learned over the years.
For the Arts Martial, we have facilities to do rattan, rapier, archery, thrown weapons AND equestrian! Bring your best and enjoy!
There is a Bardic Stage on site and we are setting aside a Dance hall. We are planning on locating the food vendors near to the bardic stage. Think, dinner and a show.
This event is still in the planning stages and will be updated as we get closer to the event. We are working on a reservation process now (8/21/17).
If you have general event questions, feel free to email me using the form belolw. Please direct more specific questions to the appropriate department head.
