Finding an Event
Your group’s Chatelaine may tell you about an upcoming event. You may also find it listed in your group or kingdom’s website. Events are always listed in the kingdom’s newsletters. Many events will have a web page. This page will give information about the location, cost, activities, and site rules. They may also offer online registration for the event. Some events will offer alternatives to the meal or at least an ingredient list made available for those with restrictions.
Unlike council meetings and fighter practice, events do require you to make an attempt at garb or historical clothing.
Tips and suggestions can be found here.
Should you have accessibility needs, the event steward or your group’s chatelaine can assist with addressing them. Some groups and kingdoms have an officer dedicated to this.
Children must be accompanied by an authorized guardian. If you will be bringing a minor to the event who is not your own child, there are specific paperwork requirements. You should check with your local seneschal about what is required in your area.
While all sites allow service animals some sites will allow pets on site if kept on-leash. It is your responsibility to ensure the animal is current on all shots and vaccinations. If an incident occurs with the animal, you may be asked to leave the site.
