    Arts & Sciences

    The Barony of the Angels invites artisans, cooks, performers, and enthusiastic supporters to honor Her Majesty Eilidh with a day of fun, arts, food, and wonderful memories!

    Everyone, regardless of age and artistic experience, is invited to participate. We welcome entries in botanical arts, brewing (non-alcoholic), fiber arts, jewelry and ornaments, metal arts, needle arts, leatherworking, pottery, woodworking, and anything that doesn't fit into any category. Unusual entries are very welcome!

    There will be a Queen’s Choice and a Populace Choice prize. You're encouraged to bring appreciation tokens to leave next to worthy entries. They don't count as votes, but artisans like to know their work has been noticed and appreciated.

    All entries must submitted by 10 am the day of the event. There will be plain tablecloths on display tables, but bring any other decoration to enhance display of your entries.

    Bardic Arts

    All types of performances are welcome; however, performances must be under 5 minutes. To reserve a performance slot or ask questions, contact Lady Briana MacCabe.

    Culinary Arts

  • Culinary entries can be kept warm in electrical crock-pots or on heating pads in the kitchen. There will be extension cords and power strips available.
  • The kitchen's refrigerator is small so please bring your own cooler to keep the food cold, if need be.
  • All dishes must be prepared ahead of the event. No food can be made using the kitchen facilities.
  • Please supply your own containers and serving utensils.
  • We recommend you make enough for 4-6 people for judging.
  • Culinary entries must list all ingredients; don’t say “nuts”, specify what kind of nuts were used.
  • Remember that the site is DRY (--and that includes the parking lot!)
  • As noted below, do NOT put your name on the documentation card! Entries will be given a number when they are checked in.


    Each entry must have at least a 3x5” index card with:

  • Entry name or short description (entry, NOT entrant)
  • Country of origin
  • Approximate date(s)/period in which the entry would have been used
  • Culinary entries must list all ingredients; don’t say “nuts”--specify what kind of nuts you used.
  • Do NOT put your name on the card! Entries will be given a number when they are checked in.

    Demos & Classes

    If you'd like to demonstrate a craft or teach a short class, contact the event stewards. Activities scheduled so far:

  • Pewtering Workshop with Baron Jon Thomme de Claydon
  • Fiber PlayDay with Dame Lynnette de Sandoval del Valle de los Unicornios
  • Scriptorium for all ages with Dame Richenda Elizabeth Coffin--come paint something for Her Majesty!


    Dame Selene Colfox has graciously volunteered her talents in preparing a donational lunch, with the profits going to the Kingdom Travel funds. The menu includes:

  • Fesenjān (pomegranate chicken)
  • Besan (like hummus, but with fava beans)
  • Flat breads
  • Salad
  • Stuffed dates
  • Water, lemonade, ice tea, and Sekanjabin syrup You may bring your own lunch, keeping in mind that this is a DRY site and no actual preparation may be done in the kitchen. Maps will be provided with the location of food within easy walking distance.


    Weather permitting, there will be a limited number of merchants at the event, set up in the courtyard outside the hall. If it rains, we regret that there will be no merchanting due to space restrictions.
