The General Layout of The Village

The SCA 50 Year Celebration has the honor of using this state-of-the-art 4-H facility.   We will be transfomring the site into our own medieval village, complete with wandering performers, raocous fighting tournaments, wonderful artisan exhibits, delicious foods, thrilling ranged activities, and events for our youth.  The month of June at the Village should be warm to hot days with mild nights (61 low - 95 high).  Yes, we do sometimes experience rain, so plan accordingly.  But do not despair, we have many covered venues!

The Village is shown below with the various buildings noted for their activity, the side bar gives more information on these locations.

The distance from the Main Hall to the road by the Gold'N Gryphon Tavern is approximately 2100ft (700 yards).  The terrain is flat and easy to wander through as you take in the sights, smells and sounds of our medieval village.

The Promenade is the wide, paved walkway thru the middle of The Village. The site extends beyond The Village to the extended camping areas and parking.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Are there Quiet Hours? 
Quiet Hours are 10:00pm to 8:00am 
While we fully expect to have activities like drumming, dances, or fighting throughout the night in the buildings, they must stay in the buildings.  The site is surrounded by residential areas so any louder activities do need to move indoors.  Quiet Bardic circles, or gatherings are fine - just keep your noise level low.  The Staff and neighbors would be greatly appreciative!

2. Alcohol
Alcohol cannot be sold on site. Period.  Alcohol can be enjoyed in one's encampment, however every attempt should be made to put it in a period container.  DO NOT SERVE MINORS.

3. Smoking
Smoking is NOT allowed in any of the buildings, nor along the Promenade.  If you are smoking, please be aware of the wind direction so as not to have smoke flow towards populated areas.
