Potrero War

Countdown To Potrero War
Thursday May 22, 2014 - Monday May 26, 2014

Calafia Bardic

Potrero War was long graced by the Lady Barbara atta Rose of “The Brass Ax and the Rose” as she sold her wares sharing a smile and kind heart with all. In honor of Lady Barbara atta Rose, the Open Arms Bardic Hall, a performance venue, will once again host performances by the most gifted and talented singers, storytellers, musicians, dancers, entertainers and bards of the Knowne World. Come and listen to stories told of dragons and magic. Marvel at the beauty of a dance or a haunting song of love. Clap your hands and sing loudly to a familiar tune. Enjoy an afternoon filled with mirth, courtly love and tales of lore.

Many thanks to the Potrero War staff, our volunteers, performers and the merchants of the war for all their help!

Performances are posted daily in front of the Open Arms Bardic Hall
