Ravenshore Yule Feast of Beasts - Shire of Ravenshore (Clearlake Oaks, CA)
The fair shire of Ravenshore has a rich variety of creatures and critters, so this year, the beasts will be featured in the Yule feast! There will be a beastly food contest. You can make your own “food art” version of a real or mythical beast. There will be contests for the best looking & tasting beasts! Since this event is a potluck, bring your best looking creature creation. Period plausible food is encouraged. Make it look like a real period creature, or even a mythical monster. There will also be a contest for beastly artisans. Whether you make a costume, give a bardic performance, or you craft a clay critter, we welcome all beast themed art to go on display. Please make sure all the creatures and beasts you use are period or period plausible creatures. Written documentation and “hunting” stories are not required for contests, but they do give you “extra points.” There will be a silent auction to help raise money for the shire. If you would like to donate an item, please contact the autocrat.
