|Join us at Iris Faire as we seek to balance the "Melancholic & Phlegmatic Humours" of the past Fall and Winter with the return of "Sanguine" Spring. Gentle Zephyrs will blow away the cobwebs of the Rational mind, inviting in the creative imaginings of Artisans at our Third Annual Regional A&S Faire. The Feastcrat's skillful use of herbs & flowers will delight your palate & tempt the senses. Knights & Rapier Captains will threaten agonizing death or offer last-minute reprieve with coated blades & mysterious tinctures in the Gold and Silver Iris Tourneys. Site is very discreetly wet, opens at 5pm Friday, April 19th, and closes at 10am Sunday, April 21st.|
