Ironwood Artisans – Re-creating historical crafts Saturday, Apr 23 2011 

If you like hand made crafts that have a touch of history behind them, than you really need to check out one of our new vendors that is coming to Abbadia Mare Festival called Ironwood Artisans

From woodworking (small boxes, chessboards, musical instruments and other things), Wooden toys (great for the young ones), Jewelry inspired by History (viking chain maille anyone?) and probably more!

They are very sweet people that have a passion for what they make and what they do.  They might even do some demonstrations (small ones) of how some of their games work so you can take them home with you to give to your family, your nephew’s birthday (coming up next week right?) or other items you might enjoy.

We hope that you will go check out their booth at Abbadia Mare Festival in July and enjoy their craftsmanship.

The Wonderful World of Wyck Wednesday, Apr 20 2011 

If you like to watch fire breathing excitement then look no further than Aj Wyck who has this amazing show called “The World Of Wyck” .!/pages/The-World-Of-Wyck/122944067719960 is the fan page where you can find out more about Wyck and his amazing tricks, but we’ll let you in on a few things now to entice you to come to Abbadia Mare Festival.

Wyck has a very engaging personality who loves to interact with his audience (young and old) but is also very knowledgeable when it comes to safety of his act.  He makes sure that small ones don’t come to close to him while he does his fire breathing and shooting flames high up into the sky.  He also does some tricks with whips and other devices that make his show interesting and even adventuresome.

He has unique humor with stunts that you have never seen before.  He will astound you and your family for an experience you won’t soon forget.

We hope that you come to Abbadia Mare Festival to see his shows and enjoy them.
