Canterbury Fayre

March 24, 2018
Lions Gate

Vancouver, BC

Winter is over. The sun is shining. The bards are singing. The grass is growing. It must be time for Lions Gate springtime celebration of arts, science, and bardic skills - Canterbury Fayre. Join us at the village market. Listen to our bards compete for the honour of being Lions Gate Bardic Champion. Stroll through the market stalls to see exhibits from the artists and scientists competing for the A&S Championship. Take a class offered by the many TUTR instructors coming for the Fayre. Or bring a picnic lunch and just relax with friends. In the evening, a tavern is planned.

Canterbury Fayre is scheduled for March 24, 2018. Just a few days after the vernal equinox. It will be held at the Shannon Hall in Surrey, BC. The event registration fee is $20 for non-members and $15 for SCA members.
