There is so much to do, no one will leave disappointed.

Young Lords and Ladies can enjoy the Kids Kingdom where they can try to siege the castle or attack a ship with a Catapult.

The whole family can try their hand at shooting an arrow, or watch a game of Spanish Towers.

The more aged in the group can enjoy a beer at our Beer Garden while taking in one of our many great Entertainers or Artisans from around the region.
Our Beer Garden includes a large variety of beers,
featuring New Glarus brews and Mead from Bos Meadry!

We again will have pony rides where you are lead through the grounds as you imagine yourself as a Lovely Lady, Charming Prince, Beautiful Princess or a Brave Knight.

Entertainers, crafters, artisans, food merchants, and other purveyors of baubles and trinkets are happily willing to trade with you; their wares for your gold. We have in attendance some of the best artisans in the region. 
Food includes Calli's Pub, and of course BEER!

Thank You
Thank you to everyone who has attended and supported us through the years - patrons, vendors, sponsors, entertainers and of course our volunteers. We could not continue this without you. We have been overwhelmed by the support that we have received. Thank you! 

We look forward to seeing you at an even better Gathering of Rogues & Ruffians in 2018.

Who are we and why do we do this?
I would like to say because we were bored and like a good party. Well we do like a good party, but none of us are bored.  In truth we are Shakespeare on the Edge Inc a 501(c)3 non-profit, we got tired of selling candy bars to raise funds, so we started A Gathering of Rogues & Ruffians. All proceeds from A Gathering of Rogues & Ruffians benefit Shakespeare on the Edge Inc so we can continue to offer our programming to our community.  Go to Shakespeare on the Edge Inc. to learn more.
