With the permission and support of the Royalty, we are embarking on a grand re-invention of the space at Pennsic reserved for the use of the East Kingdom, commonly called EK Royal.
The purpose of EK Royal at Pennsic is not only to be a home for the Royalty to camp in, but an activity hub for the East Kingdom that is beautiful, functional and welcoming. A camp that is bustling with activity – meetings, salons, bardic performances, vigils, dinners and teas – where the subjects and friends of the East feel welcome and valued. Some of these activities are private by necessity, such as Order meetings, commanders’ meetings, and State dinners and some are public, such as classes, performances and casual gatherings.
EK Royal is overseen by a team, led by the Pennsic Steward (kingdom officer appointed for a 4 year term) and the Pennsic Major-domo (appointed each year for a single Pennsic). The Steward is responsible for Land Grab, for providing the infrastructure and facilities in EK Royal, for maintaining all Pennsic-related EK property and is the interface between EK Royal and Pennsic staff. The Major-domo is responsible for scheduling of all spaces, for hospitality and gate guards, and is the interface with the Royalty.
