Six hours of dance lessons for $20 day pass, including Elizabethan.
Formerly Reeneactors fest, now Military History Fest. A celebration of history. Stalls selling clothes, trinkets, instruments, original and reproductions, all day long music performances and seminars (Sat & Sun), plus dance workshops on Saturday
The Saturday ball has a meetup scheduled for it. From 8 PM to 9:30 or so, historical dances, then switching to modern music and dance. I have not been to the ball, only the classes.
If people are interested, perhaps Rob will schedule a meetup for the classes too. I could be an event host if he cannot attend.

11:15 Colonial dances
12:30 Elizabethan court dances
2:00 ....break from dancing for a costume show
3:00 civil war dances
