Next summer’s itinerary is starting to take form. There are some new places on the itinerary and it actually took some effort to find them all on the map. Or maybe the map is to blame, looks like Olaus might have left out some crossroads (not to mention whole lakes)…
The stops along the way are:
Saturday 14.6. Kotka in the aptly named tavern Kapakka. We’ve visited Kotka before but never during the summer, so looking forward to that.
Sunday 15.6. Pyhtää, Kesä-Heikki Medieval Fair. “Enjoy of the wonderful performances, good food, the goods of the most reputable merchants, valiant knights, fair ladies and the wonderful atmosphere that takes you back in time.”
Tiistai 29.7. Tampere, Laikunlava. Evening for Old Music, with Muskotti and the dancers of Saltatores Tavastenses.
2.-3.8. Kouvola, Kouvo La Arctopolis. Medieval market spiced up with some serious piping from Finntroll, Kivimetsän Druidi, The Sandsacks, and Barbarian Pipe Band.
Lauantai 9.8. Tampere, Tallipiha. A little fair thrown together by us goes under the name of Medieval Folk Fest. Other performers include our old friends Isara, and the lovely ladies of Räikkä all the way from Åbo.
15.-17.8. Hämeenlinna, Häme Medieval Faire will always have a special place in our haearts. This will be the fifth one in a row for us and they say this year the theme is food and drink, so bring it on!
13.9. Kemiö, Keskiaikaiset saaristolaismarkkinat. Medieval fair in the archipelago promises magic, vikings, knights, ships, music and dance.
See you on the road!
