Midsummer’s Feast - Barony of Fettburg (Manteca, CA) 
Come join us as we explore the secretive world of the “Crypto-Jews” of Spain.  The inspiration for the food is from a book called: A Drizzle Of Honey: The Lives And Recipes Of Spain's Secret Jews.  There will be a midday repast of Lamb and chickpea stew, along with snacks of cheese, nuts, olives, and fruit.  The main meal will consist of Lettuce and Radish salad, Cabbage Soup, Roasted Chicken with fruit, Vegetarian Rice Pilaf, and a wonderful dessert.  The meal has no beef or pork.
At this event, we will have 3 competitions.  One will be to find our next Rapier Champion.  Do you have what it takes?  The next is the Bardic competition.  For our Bardic competition, you will need a filk, a “bard’s best” piece, and an original written on site (theme to be announced that day).  We will also be holding an A&S competition.  You can enter one of two categories, bring trim or seam treatments, or bring an imaginative, but usable weapon.  Classes TBA on Facebook event page.
Site open: 10:00 a.m. Site close: 10:00 p.m.
Site Fee:  None. Feast fee of $14.00 a person
