Canton of Basingestoches Feast of St Sylvester and 12th Night Celebration -Jan. 11, 2020

Event date: January 11, 2020. Noon – 10pm

The Canton of Basingestoches invites all to join us as we celebrate the new year with our annual Feast of St Sylvester! We are delighted to host Endewearde’s Baronial Arts and Sciences Championship again this year. If you are a resident of Endewearde or one of its cantons please come compete to be Their Excellencies’ new A&S Champion!

This year our feast will have multiple courses served at a leisurely pace throughout the afternoon. In between courses you can enjoy the Tudor-style architecture of the hall, play games near the fireplace, or sample some of the beverages at the Cock and Bull Tavern – please bring a game or drink to share if you wish.

A traditional part of this event has been our Youth Cordial Challenge where youth under 18 submit a non-alcoholic cordial to a panel of judges. We are holding this challenge again but this year we are adding an 18+ division thanks to overwhelming interest. Also called a syrup, non-alchoholic cordials are quite easy to create the creativity is all in your choice of fruits, herbs, and other flavorings. A basic syrup recipe would be 1.5 cups of water + 1 cup of sugar, bring to a boil, simmer for 10 minutes, then pour over 1 cup of fruit; infuse for 12-24 hours in the fridge, strain, add to water to taste for a flavorful beverage.
