Hear Ye ! Hear Ye !
The medieval feast idea came to be when Audrey Stoski planted the seed. As you all know when seeds have the right conditions they grow... Add Reba Meyer who told Linda McNabb who cornered Marnie Beckley and now we have a spirited cast of 86 medieval characters and 17 horses for the Gilbert Plains Homecoming Medieval Feast & Pageant. This melodious event takes place on Thursday, July 7th at the GP Rodeo Arena with the drawbridge and tavern opening at 5:00pm for the dinner guests followed by the feast commencing at 5:30 under the Big Tent.
The naughty wenches will serve the tantalizing appetizers which include prairie bison meatballs followed by a buffet style meal that will be prepared with an abundance of locally sourced products infused into the various menu items. The 250 guests will be treated to hemp crested poulet; succulent pit-roasted pork; oven fired potato jewels; homemade breads with maple butter and much more...
You will get to enjoy feasting with no utensils...
We encourage our dinner guests to come dressed in medieval costumes as there will be prizes for the best-dressed and it will be a whole lot more fun too!
Because of the dangers with prancing horses, sharp lances, medieval chaos and the lengthy but thrilling pageant we do not encourage young children to attend as a dinner guest. However.. we welcome all non-dinner guests to watch the two-hour performance from the rodeo grandstands which starts at 6:30pm. In lieu of charging an admission fee, a band of gypsies will roam the grandstands for donations.
Be prepared for a evening of fast moving medieval theatrics. You will be treated to the hilarious antics of the jesters; colorful little acrobats; the pomp of the royal court; a jousting competition, mighty sword fighters; Billy Ben Hur; May Day celebrations with much merriment of music and dance and many other surprises.
A medieval 50/50 draw will take place at this event. Angie Kruk will have the arena complex canteen open on Thursday and through Homecoming.
The proceeds from this exclusive event will be used to cover costs that are being incurred for the Homecoming celebrations that run from Wed. July 6th - 10th.
Please come join us on Thursday, July 7th and "Let the Festivities Begin"
