You may bring your own wine, beer, or mead, but we encourage you do so
responsibly, and within SCA guidelines. (Please take home your empties.)
Merchants will be graciously welcomed as well. Please contact site steward
for further details about our merchant policy .
Our site is partially Handicapped accessible. It has a step into the school,
and small bathrooms, but once inside there are no other steps. Please call
site steward for parking reservations and further details.
Please maintain a speed of 25 or below so that we may keep our attendants
safe and their neighbors happy! There will be parking assistants who will
show you which one of four lots you will park in. Those who arrive early
will be parked in proper spaces which are close to the school, those who
arrive later will be parked in a field below the school and will have a short
walk uphill to the site. Please plan accordingly.
Directions: From all points West(NY, NJ, PA): Find your best way to Route
84. Follow it to the Newburgh Beacon Bridge ($1toll and EZPASS). Cross over
bridge and continue east until Exit 20N (Brewster/Pawling: about 28 miles
from bridge). Turn at this exit. Go to further information below at*
From the East (CT, New England): Find your best way to Route 84. Follow it
west through Danbury and to NY. You will exit on the right at EXIT 20 (2nd
exit in NY) which says White Plains/Pawling (about 6 miles from Danbury Fair
Mall). While exiting, follow the right split to Route 22 Pawling. Go to
further information below at*
From NYC and points South: Find your best way to the Hutchinson River
Parkway. It will become Route 684 near White Plains. You must use left
lanes to follow 684. Continue about 40 miles until you see what appears to
be the last exits (Route 84). DO NOT EXIT! Bear to the left and continue on
as it becomes Route 22, Pawling. Go to further information below at *
FOR ALL: *Follow signs that say Rt. 22, Pawling. The road will wind down
from three lanes of highway to one single lane. After passing several motels
and restaurants (2 miles), you will make a right turn at Milltown Road.
There is a Dills Best Building Center and Millbrooke Office complex on the
right corner. You will also see a sign that says New Fairfield -8 miles;
this is your turn. Follow Milltown Road through a small cemetery and over a
small bridge to a slight fork in the road (.3 miles) marked by a sign that
says Historic Milltown. Take the right fork onto Federal Hill Road (The
left fork is more of Milltown Road), and continue approximately 2 miles to
the Melrose School on the right hand side.
