Harvest Wars, A.S. LIV

September 27-29, 2019

Hear the beat of the war drums, Atlantia’s borders are under threat of invasion! The summer is over and the harvest is in—now is the time to raid your neighbor’s bounty. An invitation is extended to Aethelmearc, Kingdom of the East and Atlantia to come and enlarge their own harvest by raiding their neighbors. There will be cattle and food raids, siege engine pumpkin chucking (bring your own pumpkins), along with many battles. There will be A&S displays and contests, children’s activities and a daytime 
bardic circle of bone-tingling tales, not to mention a fabulous feast featuring our bounteous harvest.
