Visit Alma, Wisconsin on Saturday, June 10th for Castlerock Museum’s annual Fire in the Shire event! What started as the annual Castlerock Museum Gala has grown into a citywide celebration of all things medieval. Join us for a day full of colorful exhibits, demonstrations, food, shopping and family fun.
The event will start at 9am with a Meet & Greet with coffee and donuts at the Alma Hotel followed by a knightly parade at 10am that will wind its way up to the Castle. The parade will marshal on River Street, cross the Great River Road by the Alma Hotel, head up Elm Street which turns into Orange Street, and then down 2nd Street to Castlerock Museum across from the Courthouse. Keep in mind, 2nd Street will be closed to vehicle traffic in front of the museum.
The Castle doors will open at 10:30am with a special performance by the Bella Voce Renaissance Vocal Ensemble. There will be ongoing demonstrations of trade crafts, such as wood working, and coin making, along with ancient and medieval re-enactors from the Milchiean Hoplites and A Life Medieval.
For many visitors, the highlight of the day will be the swordsmanship demos taking place throughout the afternoon. The Wisconsin Historical Fencing Association will demo the longsword at 11am and 1:50pm. Clann Tartan will do a non-firing matchlock demo at 11:40am and a pike demo at 2:30pm. The Hokkyokusei Kendo Club will show off Japanese swordsmanship at 1:10pm. The SCA Shire of Shattered Oak will do rapier and armored combat demos at 12:20pm and 3:10pm.
The NorthEnd Pub & Grill will provide concessions and the museum will close at 5pm. Admission wristbands to the museum are $6 for adults and $4 for students. Children four and under are free. Visitors in ancient, medieval, or renaissance era dress will pay half price. Weapons must remain sheathed and peace-tied. Costumes can be bought at Art & Soul.
What medieval themed event would be complete without a search for the Holy Grail? Stop by the Empire Room Patio at 11am, Wings Over Alma at 1pm, Danzinger Vineyards at 3pm for a chance to obtain a key that may unlock the chest holding the treasured artifact. The search will conclude at Castlerock Museum at 4pm.
An art contest will take place among the shops of Alma showcasing medieval and renaissance inspired works. Visitors can pick their favorites and enter a drawing for $100 Alma Dollars. The drawing will take place at the Castle after the Grail Contest. Participating shops include The Burlington Quilt Shop, Weaving Studio, Art & Soul, Bluebird, Alma Leather, Wings Over Alma, Water Lily Gifts, 3G Gallery, Etta’s Place, Stump Town Gallery, The Commercial, The Shanty, Junk Market / Siam Traditions, Alma Vintage Photoshop, and Alma Art Adventures.
Food and drink will not be lacking on Main Street. You can try the Middle Earth Platter with plenty of mead at the Empire Room, muffins and scones at the Coffee Wench, and grilled brats at the Volunteer Alma Fire Department.
There will be merry making throughout the land with gypsy belly dancers and madrigal singers traveling between the various shops, juggling at the Local Perk Bakery, and face painting at Wings Over Alma from 11am to 1pm. The Big River Theater will show The Princess Bride at 2pm. The Theater of Fools will perform at the Empire Room Patio at 11am, Wings Over Alma at 1pm, and Danzinger Vineyards at 3pm. The day’s festivities will wrap up with a Masquerade Ball and performance by the Wabasha Winds at the Empire Room from 5 to 7pm.
