The notice was posted to the SCA Cook's list, so I thought it might be worthy of posting here, too.  This event is in the western part of Pennsylvania, but sounds interesting.

Fireside Feast
Shire of Sunderoak
September 2-4, 2011

Brisk fall air, the sound of combat rings in the distance . the smell of
food mingled with wood smoke wafts through the air.

It's not just fanciful imagery; it's the theme of the Shire of Sunderoak's
upcoming event.

Ever wanted to try to cook over an open fire? See it done? OK, just eat some
really good food? Here is your chance.

The event stewards, Katla Ulfhedinn (katla at zoominternet.net) & Yvianne de
Castel d'Avignon (yvianne at zoominternet.net) invite you to join us as we
spend the weekend of September 2-4 creating a Fireside Feast  at Breakneck
Campground (1757
Cheeseman Road, Portersville, PA.  16051)

Saturday will be filled with the opportunity to take open air cooking
classes. Any who wish to join us for the evening meal may bring supplies and
prepare your own gastronomical delight over an open fire ... or bring a
prepared dish from home. **Modern fare as well as period food is welcome.**

Fire pits and wood will be provided for those cooking on site. Limited
ironware and spits will be available by prior arrangement - please contact
Katla or Yvianne to inquire or reserve.

Our marshal has informed us that due to the time of year and site's close
proximity to Pennsic, we may want to fortify our defenses. Therefore, he
welcomes any with armor and weapons to join him on the list field.
