Saint Egon’s Feast, March 17-19, 2017
It is with great joy we are inviting the people of Drachenwald to celebrate Gotvik’s patron saint Egon, who protects us against foul farmers and rains of herring. It is this year twenty years since we first celebrated this illustrious saint and his glorious deeds in civilizing Gotvik. In honour of the 20 years’ anniversary of this Feast the vita of St. Egon and will be dramatized in various ways.
Before the arrival of Egon, the missionary, the people of Gotvik lived in darkness, dirt and barbary; worshipping evil idols and herring. To remember this Dark Age, Friday night will have barbary as its theme – this is the time to dig out your coarsest woollen garb, old sackcloth tunics or fur costumes! And indulge in herring.
On Saturday, we will be liberated from this barbarous state by the power of St. Egon and dress in our usual finery, enjoying a sumptuous feast in the evening.
There will be Heavy Fighting, arranged by His Excellency, baron Måns of Gotvik.
