The Barony of Blatha An Oir invites you to our traditional mid-winter event on February 15th, 2020.

The day’s activities will include a Swap Meet, Baronial Court, a Pot-Luck Feast, and A&S Classes and Activities. Enclosed flame candles and festive table decorations are encouraged.

Please bring your own tablecloths and table decorations to fit standard round or 6 foot rectangular banquet tables.

Alcoholic beverages are allowed (in period containers please). An open Gaming table will be provided. Bring your tabletop games to share.

Tables and a garment rack will be provided for your Swap Meet items. Please put your name (seller) and the price on each item. Financial transactions, barter, etc. are strictly between the buyer and the seller. There is a large parking lot at the facility, so we have plenty of room for you to bring vehicles and trailers for sale.
