Moink Balls are meat balls wrapped in bacon. Little heart attack bombs, actually, but pretty good.

Spreading the word for Mutton & Mead
Hello all, I am trying to send this to past Mutton and Mead Vendors and possible future vendors. We have set the fees for 2012. This will be a two day event June 23 and 24, 2012 and these fees are for two days. Please contact me if you are interested.

We will be accepting applications on our website www.muttonandmead.com
Please watch for this and if you wish to join us submit your application. Because of the number of vendors that want to come this year vs the number of spaces available not everyone thats wants to be a vendor will be able to. We will be basing our choices on many factors. We are looking for more period type products and more food vendors.We also want our vendors to dress in more period type attire and try to make their vending area more period appropriate. We will be choosing from the applications in Feb.

Thanks so much.

Denise Milkey, Vendor Manager for Mutton and Mead.

OPEN HOUSE on Monday
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mutton & Mead, a Medieval / Renaissance Festival held in Turners Falls, will be hosting an OPEN HOUSE on Monday, October 24th, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Montague Grange, 36 Main Street, Montague Center.

“The open house is an chance for people to come out and meet us, find out more about Mutton and Mead and the different ways to participate and / or support the event” said David Agro, the festival’s Artistic Director. “There are a lot of opportunities for people, businesses and organizations to get involved and or work with us; performing, vending, demonstrating, advertising or simply volunteering during the festival. People should check us out at the open house or online. Or stop by and say hello at Pumpkinfest this Saturday in Turners Falls where we'll be handing out information about the open house and selling Mutton & Mead t-shirts and ceramic mead cups."

The Mutton & Mead Medieval Festival debuted in Montague, MA, this past June, 2011. Nottingham shire was brought to Montague where patrons witnessed the story of Robin Hood unfold around them. They encountered the shire’s townsfolk as they were treated to an exciting lineup of festivities, including a variety of minstrels and bands, jesters, puppeteers, acrobats, jugglers, activities, games and a full armor Joust. Vendors lined the shire’s streets and merriment filled the air. The festival was also a benefit for the Western Mass Food Bank and the Montague Grange.

“Despite being pulled together relatively quickly and by a committee of only twelve people" said Michael Muller, who, among other things, is the festival’s General Manager, "it was an incredible success. We have some great ideas on how to make next year’s two-day festival even better and will need many more people involved."

Mutton & Mead will next be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 23rd and 24th, 2012.

More information and photos of last June's festival can be found at www.MuttonAndMead.com

Spreading the word for Mutton & Mead
Ok folks, I know there are a bunch of you out there who are reading this. We need your help.

The Mutton and Mead Medieval Festival is a town-wide effort, and will be a great addition to the other fantastic new events that have quickly become a tradition here, including the Soapbox Derby, the Pumpkin Festival, the Spring Parade, and of course the Block Party.

Whether or not you're going to the festival please take a moment to email your friends on any mailing lists you are on, post to your Facebook or Twitter walls, or grab a poster from me and put it up somewhere.

Keep in mind that it's also a fundraiser for both the Foodbank of Western Mass as well as our very own Montague Grange.

If you want to volunteer, please sign up at the official website: http://muttonandmead.com/index.cfm?p=c.add

---------------

Mutton & Mead Medieval Festival, Saturday, June 18, at the Millers Falls R&G Club, 210 Turners Falls Road. $15 adults, $10 kids and seniors at the gate.

Mutton and Mead is a fundraiser for the Foodbank of Western Mass. Donations of non-perishable food at the gate will get you up to $1-off the ticket price for each two items, up to $3 total.

The first annual Mutton and Mead Medieval Festival is coming to Turners Falls on the grounds of the Millers Falls Rod and Gun Club on Saturday, June 18, 2011. The festival, traditionally known as a Renaissance Faire, is the first of its kind for Montague and will bring together fun, food, and entertainment with a medieval flair. This will be a day for everyone, kids, teens, and adults alike. Dressing up in period costumes is not required, but it will heighten the experience for everyone.

The theme for the inaugural year is Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest, "Thieves of Honor." Many characters from the legend, including Robin and his band of Merry Men, will be making appearances in the woods around the faire along with a varied assortment of entertainers, craftspeople, and other vendors from across New England. There will also be jousting, eagles and falcons, knife throwing, archery demonstrations and contests, various food vendors selling contemporary and period-authentic foods, as well as artisan crafts and medieval merchandise.

Be transported through time

So travel back in time with us to the early 13th Century. The Mutton and Mead Tavern is holding their annual summer festival, and collecting food for the poor. The shire folk are worried the Sheriff of Nottingham will come and exact tax payment on the collected food, but are confident that Robin Hood will swoop in and save the day!

Advertising in the Mutton & Mead Program Booklet!
The Mutton and Mead committee is looking for program booklet advertisers for the Festival!

While this will be a wonderful day of song, stories, food, vendors, jousting, juggling, and everything one comes to expect of a faire of this kind, Mutton and Mead is also a fundraiser for both the Foodbank of Western Mass, as well as the Friends of the Montague Grange (also a 501(c)(3)). We will be doing a food drive on the day of the faire and will also raise money for the two organizations.

The Festival will be giving out 2,000 free 40-page programs to all faire-goers at the festival. These handsome keepsake programs, printed on yellowed buff paper with a stiff cover, will contain not just the typical cast and crew credits and festival map, but also song lyrics, activity pages, historical background of the era and the individual characters in the faire, and a scavenger hunt that must be stamped to earn the special prize at the end.

Photos and hand-drawn sketches will festoon this booklet, as well as costume patterns and coupons for the 2012 festival, so it is guaranteed that faire-goers will want to keep it on hand for next year.

They will also want to know where to go to eat or drink after the faire; where to spend the night to check out our area; what sights there are to see and fun stores to visit. This is where you come in.

There are three ad sizes available:
1/4 page $40 each -- 5"wide x 2"high, or 2.5"wide x 4"high
1/3 page $55 each -- 5"wide x 2.5"high
1/2 page $80 each -- 5"wide x 4"high
Full Page $160 each -- 5"wide x 8"high

Print-ready copy deadline is May 15, 2011, via email.

If you're ready to just go for it, please go to the Forms page to download and print the form and send it in with your check.

http://muttonandmead.com/index.cfm?p=f&title=Forms

If you know of a pub, bar, restaurant, bed & breakfast or other fun establishment in our area, please forward this email to them.
