Along with all the classic marshal activities we will be having our own version of traditional Highland Games. So head on over to Altavia this May and make your Scottish Clan proud!

Something stirs within me
When I hear the bagpipes play
They reach down deep inside my heart
Whether close or far away
And as I stand and listen
Something happens deep inside
Their music flows into my soul
And fills my heart with pride
But something else is happening
Something you cannot see
For my heart begins to wander
and longs once more to be free

Commedia dell’Altavia – Altavia Anniversary

Saturday, May 8, 2021 @ 11 am PDT

“Celebrate a Caidan Renaissance with Commedia dell’Altavia! The Barony of Altavia invites you to join us virtually for our Anniversary event on Saturday, May 8, 2021 for comedy, theater and fun as we joyously celebrate a new day with an Italian twist! Our commedia will be full of foolish and witty joys —just as the original commedia dell’arte in Italy was — living up to Altavia’s motto of “Theatre not Drama!”

The day’s online events will include such delights as fighting games, an arts and sciences competition to honor the beauty and skill of our artisans, and a bardic hall for performances of all types including, (in the spirit of His Excellency Niko), the opportunity for everyone to share your favorite dad jokes and inspirational quotes, and a Trivia Contest. There will also be a best non-virtual background contest and a Scavenger Hunt to intrigue and entertain. If you loved the last Scavenger Hunt then be sure and join us for a new and exciting version starting on Facebook on May 1st! Full instructions will follow shortly. The winners of the fighting competitions will be “Champions of the Day” and will receive special Facebook frames for display! For the Arts and Sciences competition, the entries must’ve been completed during the pandemic (but they don’t have to have been started within this time frame!) Your entries do not need to be on theme and documentation is encouraged. Artists will present their entries from 12:15pm to 12:45pm. The winner of the Arts and Sciences competition will be the new Baronial champion and will also receive a special Facebook frame for display!

In the week leading up to the main event, there will be several additional activities taking place on the baronial Discord server including a movie night on Wednesday, May 5th and a crafting get-together on Thursday, May 6th, where we’ll create Italian Renaissance sock puppets to be shown off during the event itself. Grab some old socks, fabric scraps, buttons, beads, and yarn!

We hope that you will join us for these and other fun surprises as we look forward to a new day for all of Caid!

Schedule of the Day:

11:00am Opening court and Scavenger Hunt begins.
