Shire of Seawinds Winter Revel and Demo
Ansteorra! Come and embrace the coming winter season with Seawinds hospitality. Join us as we participate the annual demo at the Ingleside Renaissance Faire December 10th and 11th, 2011 at Live Oak Park in Ingleside, TX.
Food, Fun, Mayhem, and Destruction (that’s just how we do things in Seawinds)
We will be representing the SCA, showing the public who we are and what we do. We are providing a medieval atmosphere and entertainment for the faire patrons. Enjoy the weekend dressed in your best garb and playing your favorite persona. For those who are a fan of Tartanic, they will be playing both days at this year’s event.
Fair hours are from 10am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday. Participants are encouraged to attend both days, though if you just wanted to day trip a Saturday or Sunday, we would love to see you.
The Schedule of Events
· Friday: Arrival and set up with hospitality meal Friday night
· Saturday: Fighting and frivolity. Heavy and light fighters are needed. All artisans are welcome to set up under the artisans pavilion. There is a need for actors for a tongue and cheek, improvisational, wedding ceremony. After the fair has closed to the public, let the revel ensue. Complementary breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served
· Sunday: Fighting and frivolity. The need for heavy and light fighters. All artisans are welcome to set up under the artisans pavilion.

Arts and Sciences
Seawinds invites all artisans of the realm who would like to demonstrate their craft to come down and set-up under our pavilion. Share your craft with others or come be inspired by others who share their craft. There will be two (2) large tents to set up under as well as lots of trees. Bring that display that needs a lot of room, we would love to see it!
Fighters of Chivalric and Rapier! Make your way to this lyst field for there is good fighting to be had in Ingleside: Knights, Centurions, Dons, Cadets – or anyone who loves a good battle – heed this call and demonstrate your might.
