May Faire

May 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Good folk of Maine Coast Waldorf School!

The Faire doth fast approach and with it an eyeful of wonders from lands far and near. There will be food and drink of the sort only the cooks and brewers, huntsmen, and taverners of this fair kingdom do make. And when your hunger is satisfied and your thirst be slaked, there will be tables and booths with wares to tempt the jingle of coin in your purse. And many the wandering minstrel and jongleur to entertain you. Games there will be to test your skill and strength. And being the welcome of the May, there shall be dancing around the pole, as well as dancing with swords. It is sayed as well, that there may be a bit of the unforseen and unknown, so keep a sharp eye and ready ear throughout. And last, of course, is that ye are aware that to truly be a Faire of Medieval times, ye must also look the part. Search your closets, open your chests, borrow or beg, and if all else fails then do your festive best.

Folks who are involved in the machinations of the day are asked to be at school by 8:30. Students must be present by 9:45. The bagpipes start their skirl at 10:00, and the procession begins. The Faire is from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine (Note: The event will be cancelled if there is severe weather, i.e. dangerous, not just uncomfortable.) Dancing and shenanigans around the pole come first. Then all are invited to eat, drink, play games, listen to music, and thoroughly enjoy a few hours of merriment. Clean-up begins at 1:00 when we wish all visitors a Happy May and many thanks for their part in Halantow.

If you have questions about the event, please call Lisa in the Grade School Office, 865-3900.
