Here we come a-wandering, so fair to be seen.

Cynnabar's premiere revel! Please join us for friends, fun and holiday festivities.

This year's Wassail theme is "Cynnabar"! As we are coming up on the 40th anniversary of the group, we would like to celebrate the barony! Wear your red, white and black, baronial heraldry, anything that you can to celebrate this wonderful Barony. If you have elephant figurines or tower ornaments, adorn your ta​bles with them! We will have some for the tables, but the more the merrier! Have a story about our patron saint? Feel free to offer it up during dinner.

Note: While this IS a wet site, no alcohol is allowed outside of the building.​

See our list of activities, schedule and other items to bring!

Suggested donation - $5 at gate
