Step back in time 500 years with
us to the year 1513, and join us for a traditional Scottish New
Year Feast.  As has become tradition, the Shire of MyrtlehHolt
will be hosting the traditional Scottish new year, and this year in
grand style.

This year, we will be
celebrating at the Kerby Belt Building, the traditional home of
this event from years past.

The daytime activities will
include classes, highland games, competitions, and we welcome
entertainments from any who wish to provide music or bardic
endeavors.  See below for more details.

A light side board will be
available through the early afternoon for those who need to curb
their appetites.

The feast will take us through
to a fully separate feast hall.  Therein we will serve
traditional Scottish Hogmanay favorites, along with other great
Gaelic dishes, not to mention traditional Haggis.

With our stomachs full, and our
hearts filled with joy, it will be time for the women to put on
their judging hats, and send the men to wash their knees!! The
famous Bonnie Knees Contest will once again be the highlight of the
evening.

For those travelling great
distances to join us, see below for some options for lodging near
the event.

 Feast
Information

This year’s feast will continue our commitment
to providing incredible quality and quantity of period foods with
an eye towards modern culinary tastes and dietary

considerations to feed the starving masses of
Southern Antir to celebrate the New Year.  Not only that, but
as usual, the Feast Stewards are attempting to make certain that
dietary pathways through the feast are provided for the following
requirements:  Gluten intolerance, diabetes, vegetarian, and a
small handfull of alergies.  If you should have dietary
considerations that you’d like to make the Feast Stewards aware of
in advance that might make your feasting more enjoyable, please
don’t hesitate to let them know as soon as possible. 
Likewise, should you have an alergy and wish to know which dishes
to feast on, or to avoid, please ask.
