Something for Everyone

The Shire holds events throughout the year. Follow the links below to learn more.

Newcomers are always welcome to join in. We have a dedicated person – the Chatelaine – who is available to provide information and assistance to newcomers. At minimum, all you really need to do is show up and participate. Weekly gatherings and Populace meetings are typically not dress-up occasions, and we have loaner outfits available for the dress-up occasions.
