Feast of the Hare

Last year was Fancy Hare, this year not so much. Welcome to our low brow version. A Peasant fall festival with market and various tournaments and competition.

Imaginenthe sounds and smells of a medieval market. Listen to the merhchants haggling and the clinking of coins. Browse the brightly colloured fabric and trim. Find the medival treasure you didn’t know you needed. Feast of the Hare has been transformed into a peasants market this year.

The Fall harvest is in. Come to our market and celebrate the harvest. Because it’s a market day, produce or preserved food will be the valued prizes. For entertainment participate and observe the amusingly shaped produce contest. There will be a turnip carving contest as well.
