A tradition of Squires Revolt is the afternoon barroom brawl. The actual
fight is among adult fighters in heavy weapons and rapier. However,
bystanders can join in by throwing special “weapons” and
attack animals in from the sides. Children who would like to participate
from the sidelines may join us for a special “weapons” making
class to be used later in the brawl.
Bring a batch of period “cookies” or small pastries to be
displayed in the A&S area. Votes will be counted with beans by the
populace. Entries must include a complete ingredient list at minimum
to avoid allergy issues, but can also include documentation and recipes.
Leftovers will be served during the dessert course of feast so please
plate on a disguised disposable serving platter/bowl if you won’t
be in attendance for feast. Knives and napkins will be available for
