at the sign of the Dancing Fox:

A Great Migration

February 6th, 2016

Hosted by Shire of Nordenhal - Kingston, NY

Event Details

Alas, the old den has been scoured by invaders! A great migration takes place and a new home will be found for the Dancing Fox.

Site is Bone Dry

Once again the lilting airs of the Bhakaili Branslers will set toes to tapping as we gather at the sign of the Dancing Fox.

Our amazing dance masters, lead by Lady Lorita de Siena, will teach the intricacies of terpsichorean grace.

Activities and games shall divert the co-ordinationally challenged.

Dayboard and Feast by Brigitte Flamin and her amazing apprentices


Brigitte has issued her dessert challenge! Entrants should bring a dessert (or desserts, you may enter more than once) to fit into:

Foxes: Foxes know a little about a lot of things. They are also tricksters, so entries in this category with less than authoritative documentation, and perhaps not fit into a particular period of the Middle Ages or Renaissance.

Hedgehogs: Hedgehogs know a lot about one thing. These entries will be held to a higher degree of scrutiny, and should have full documentation and come from a particular period of the Middle Ages or Renaissance.

Brigitte and her panel of judges will sample all entries, but desserts will be shared by all guests of the event! Questions may be directed to Brigitte (as listed below.)


Yes, for those who like to fabricate fancy finery, a faux fox will be provided along with fabric of all types, and you will get to design persona and garb for your furred friend and enter a fashion show at the end of the day. (You may bring your own fabric, etc.) We are asking that, should you desire for you new friend to go home with you, we hope you will make a $10 donation to help defray the cost of supplying stuffies. The winner will get a special surprise from the autocrat!

Quilt Raffle:

$5 a chance or six for $20.
