What is a salon? A salon is a type of gathering that typically offers a relaxed space where people of like interests can gather to discuss a topic, or to display related arts or demos. These tend to be open leisurely affairs where people can come and go, stop in and chat, or spend lots of time getting to know about topics that they might not otherwise have extensive knowledge of. There is no requirement for a given Salon to last for the entirety of the day or even event. You are free to set your own opening and closing times as well as selecting the day or days that work best for your group. Evening hours are also a great option if you wish to host something as more of a night life / social.

Calling all baronies, shires, households and friends!
This year at Castle Wars, instead of a traditional feast or a single fundraiser lunch option, we would like to offer attendees several food options in a way that will contribute to the overall atmosphere at the event.
For this event we are creating an area similar to a town center that features a mix of salons, merchants, and food vendors. The vision is to have a community gathering after court, where we can gather to shop, pick up some food, hang out with friends, play some games, and enjoy the evening.
By doing this we want to accomplish two things. First, not all members are part of a household camps or have the resources to do camp cooking. In the evening most members disappear to their own camps and newer members can feel isolated. We would like to offer options for everyone as well as a sense of community. Secondly, by offering this opportunity to multiple groups and households, they can fundraise without placing a huge burden on just one group and we can accommodate more people than we could in a traditional feast environment.
