A Gathering of The Arts

Twelfth Night is the traditional celebration of the end of the twelve nights of Christmas season with the evening on the Epiphany day (January 6th). Every year, the Barony of the Steppes hosts Twelfth Night to the enjoyment and merryment of all the people of the known world. Come one and all in our wonderful barony of the Steppes and her cantons and neighbors, for we hope to present a celebration of Twelfth Night that will last in your memory like no other.

Join us as we revel in the winter holidays. Bring your compatriots to show us your collective skill in music, dance, theatre, puppetry, acrobatics, or whatever else you can do with three to seven others. Put your table group together and create a beautiful period table decoration for our table contest, or bring several friends to present a tableau of costuming and hand crafts for the group costume contest. Taste the amazing array of Italian feast items created by Master Caelin.
