A Camelot Cuisine
Enjoy a multi-course banquet of hearty medieval fare (vegetarian delights also available). Libations include wine and ale and non-alcoholic beverages.
Be Awed and Entertained
Jugglers, jousters, magicians and musicians will amuse and delight - plus the return of the Old Crone. A wonderful group outing and fun way to beat the bleak mid-winter blues.
Bid on not-to-be missed items including house concerts, private piano lessons and much more!
The alchemist will offer sweet concoctions of the chocolate persuasion. The Knights of the Shiny Pottery will hold council, and wield ceramic whistles and gargoyles to defend honor and court. The Eastern mystic will trade in beads and up-cycled ornamentation, including children's playthings.
A Sight to See
The evening ends with the curious ceremony of the Pig's Head. You just gotta be there!
Whether arriving on horseback, foot or in a modern-day chariot, parking is free. Trinity Cathedral's parking lot entrance is on Prospect Avenue at East 22nd Street. Overflow parking is available in the Cleveland State University Prospect garage.

About Music and Art at Trinity
- The annual Medieval Feasts constitute the major in-house fundraising event for Music and Art at Trinity. Funds raised from the feasts allow Music and Art to produce its free Brownbag Concert series. Held Wednesdays at noon (from October-May), the series - now in its 36th season - is the longest-running free concert series in the greater Cleveland area. Last year, more than 6,000 people attended these concerts.
- The Brownbags provide a wide array of high-quality live music (and excellent food for only $5 per lunch) for a largely underserved population. Many attendees are from retirement and assisted-living communities, who may not otherwise have access to live performances of this nature. The concerts are also accessible to students and those living, and working, in downtown. And the series provides work/performing opportunities for a wide variety of local musicians, including students and the wonderful talent pool of area freelance musicians.
