SECOND ANNUAL NORTHERN SUMMER FAIRE

Group: 
Date: 
Thursday, July 23, 2020 - 12:00 to Sunday, July 26, 2020 - 12:00

NOTICE: This event is subject to being canceled if, at the time the event is to be held, modern civil authorities have issued restrictive orders related to public gatherings pursuant to their COVID-19 mitigation efforts.

Second Annual Northern Summer Faire is a collaboration of all Northern groups; this year, the Shire of Silver Keep is the Sponsor. Come and join the North in a new event that includes the participation of all northern groups. The Shire of Silver Keep has chosen to give up their summer event, Castle Siege, in an effort to help build a single, bigger, better event. All the northern groups will collaborate together to make Northern Summer Faire a fun, all-inclusive event for the whole family! Last year’s event was a great success; we hope to make this year’s event even bigger and better!

The event begins at noon on Thursday, July 23, 2020, and there will be multiple activities planned, including archery, thrown weapons, rapier tournaments (single and groups), armored fighting tournaments (single and groups), melees (rapier and armored), Arts & Sciences, as well as a number of other things. More information will be made available, as our planning comes together.

Site: Smith Park, 1190 Ten Mile Rd., Dillon, MT 59725. Site opens at noon, Thursday, July 23rd and closes at noon, Sunday, July 26th.
Site is just ¾ miles from town, so all amenities will be nearby. There is a KOA just up the road before you get to site if anyone with RVs wants hook ups. There is NO potable water on site. The only water is on the owner’s property up the road. You are welcome to take jugs and fill them yourself, but it might be easier to bring your own water. Personal showers allowed. Pets are allowed, but they must be on leash at all times. Cleaning up after your pet is YOUR responsibility.

There will be one large fire pit for the encampment. Cooking sources and propane fire pits must be above ground 12” and require a fire extinguisher nearby and visible at every tent. Site is wet. There is no shade, so please bring your own. Also, there is a significant chance of insects due to the proximity of water, so repellent is recommended. Smoking allowed, but care must be taken regardless of conditions; no butts on the ground EVER. The site is handicapped accessible.

Registration: Adult Event Registration $30.00; Adult Member Discount Event Registration is $25. Youth 15 years and younger are free. Family cap at $45. Day trip is $15, with a $5 discount for SCA members. Please make checks payable to SCA Inc., Shire of Silver Keep.
