Okay, that’s all of them!  Also forgot to mention that we will be having The Corr Thieves joining us, so do come to see their show!

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids ages 5 – 11 and kids ages 4 and under are FREE!  Parking is an additional $15 per vehicle and is located at Stage Fort Park also in Gloucester, MA, but a free shuttle service will be provided to and from the Castle!  You can buy your tickets when you arrive at the event!

Do know that as beautiful as Hammond Castle Museum is, it is NOT WHEELCHAIR OR STROLLER FRIENDLY due to the numerous stairs at this venue!

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 http://www.ironwoodartisans.com/.

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.
