One of the joys of Pennsic is the opportunity to celebrate landmark moments with friends who may not be able to gather at any other time or place. A special setting can make the event more memorable, especially if you don’t have to set up the space!

The East Kingdom Royal Encampment at Pennsic offers its lovely Vigil Chapel for a variety of small gatherings:

  • Peerage elevation vigil, particularly if the group planning the vigil is small and/or surprising the candidate with an in-camp vigil would be difficult

  • Hand-fasting and other commitment ceremonies

  • Afternoon tea party

  • … and other types of celebrations!

The Vigil Chapel will be a 10 x 10 space with removable canvas walls and silk painted faux stained glass windows depicting the various peerages. Furnishings include seating, side tables, and two tables for vigil food or display, with additional ambiance from hanging lanterns and candles. The Chapel will be available between the hours of 10 a.m. and 10 p.m., from Wednesday, August 1st through Thursday, August 9th. The Vigil Chapel must be reserved in advance.

For details about reserving the Vigil Chapel, including the possibility of using the State Kitchen to prepare food for your gathering, please email Baroness Medhbh inghean Ui Cheallaigh, Pennsic Major-Domo for Brennan III and Caoilfhionn III.

We look forward to your happy occasions!
