Eisental: Celtic Classic Demo, Sept 30 and Oct 1
- Celtic Classic Demo
Where can you go to spin or weave all day, fight until you're ready to drop,
see Celtic Music performances live, for free and eat haggis and potato
pancakes? There's only one place, the Shire of Eisental invites all to
join us for our two day demo, September 30th and October 1st, at the Celtic
Classic Festival in Bethlehem, PA.
Both days will be filled with fighting, and on going art & sciences demos.
So bring your armor, your current project and your purse. The fighting will
begin at 11am both days, ending in our area at 5pm with a Grand Melee at the
Parade Grounds on Saturday evening. A spacious pavilion will be set up for
the Arts & Sciences area, bring your projects and join us. The pavilion
will be open to allow visitors to approach to see what you are working on
and ask questions. For your comfort, two changing pavilions will be
available as well as a hospitality pavilion where we will serve lunch to
everyone who joins us. It's our way of thanking you for attending our demo.
In addition to the heavy lists, there will also be demonstrations of the
East Kingdom Youth Combat program. During the day and after the demo, there
will be plenty of time to take in the sights, sounds and amazing food
offered by the festival. For more information on the festival itself, check
