The time for Harvest Raid quickly approaches. The Shire of Heronter invites one and all to join them for a fantastic weekend of heavy fighting, fencing, archery, A&S, & the silent auction.

Show your talent and inspire others by bringing Arts & Sciences items for display! Donations for a Silent Auction are welcome, including items you make or SCA gear that needs a new home. Bring day shades, your own food and drink, games and entertainment, and appropriate sun and insect protections. There will be indoor space for the A&S Display and Silent Auction, and there is ample outdoor space for day shades around the martial areas. Indoor restrooms and changing spaces available.

Merchants are welcome! Please contact one of the co-autocrats below for more information.

We will follow SCA and Kingdom rules along with state regulations. Please contact us closer to the event for questions and details as those change.
