Event Description:
Midsummer is past, and the mountaintop fires of Lammas echo the heat of August. In Ravensdale, the populace gathers to celebrate Lammas with fires and fighting, stories and song.

Join the Beauty Pageantry and vote to help us find the prettiest! The prettiest what, you ask? Yes! “The prettiest” anything-you-can-take-a-picture-of! Garb! Armour! Encampment! Banner! Bring your pretty things and show them off!

In the evenings, share a well-told story around the campfire! Ghost stories are traditional for Lammas, so brace for chills. Cheer on the children as they once again sacrifice the Lammas Bull Llama!

In addition to heavy and rapier fighting, there is also archery and thrown weapons (schedule to be determined by the weather). A swimming pond is on site. Dogs are welcome, so long as they stay leashed.

Merchanting is encouraged! Ursan Meadery will be returning this year.

Please note we will not have a handicapped porta-potty available.

Smoking in designated areas only.

Campfires/braziers must conform to current area fire regulations.

Discretely wet event.

Quiet time between 1:00 am and 7:00 am


The Site:

Lammas is Ravensdale’s annual camping event. It takes place in the Annapolis Valley on a large private property on the North Mountain in Berwick, NS, over the Natal Day long weekend at the beginning of August. The site is about ten minutes from Highway 101 (exit 15).

Gas, ice, propane, and an ATM are available at a gas station about five minutes away. The town of Berwick is ten minutes away with grocery stores, restaurants, gas, and a liquor store. Two hospitals, Valley Regional in Kentville and Soldier’s Memorial in Middleton, are each about twenty-five minutes away.

Lammas is a family-friendly, relaxed event on a fairly level site.


Directions:

Make your way to Exit 15 on Highway 101. Head north (away from town) and keep going straight past the hairpin turn up the mountainside. At the top, go left onto Brow of Mountain Road. About two kilometres in, go right onto Hamilton Road. The property is on the right, just before the trees. Parking will be off of Brow of Mountain Road again, about 500 metres past Hamilton Road, on the right. Click here for a map.
