  • Is there a dress code?
    -Yes, Halfling Attire is required for attendance. This can be as simple or extravagant as you wish. Please do not dress as any other non-halfling fantasy characters to ensure everyone fully enjoys the party experience. Here is a Pinterest Board for ideas and a fun thrifting video we made!
     
  • What is included with my ticket?
    -General Admission Tickets are $35 ($5 for children 0-5 years old) and will include entry to the event, Afternoon Tea, and a celebratory cupcake by Elysian Treats. Please see below FAQ concerning dietary restrictions.

  • Is this a family-friendly event?
    -Yes! For children, 0yr - 5 yr admission is $5 and they will receive their own cupcake.

  • Can I bring outside food & drink?
    -We encourage you to bring a blanket and a picnic basket full of snacks and treats to enjoy as you wish. We will have water fill stations but please bring your own container/mug to refill! No outside alcohol will be permitted. There will be no beer & wine available for purchase.

  • Will there be things I can purchase while there?
    -Yes! Baked goods for Afternoon Teatime will be available for purchase but are not included in the ticket price. The Fell & Fair Shop is open Friday, March 29th, 3-7pm, for any costume needs!
     
  • What is for Cake?
    -Elysian Treats is making amazing cupcakes and one will be included in your ticket. Please be sure to select Gluten Free if you need at check-out.

    If you require a Vegan or Dairy-Free meal, please see the next FAQ.

  • Will there be Vegan or Dairy-free options?
    -Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer a vegan or dairy-free option for cake or dinner. The cost to do so would require us to make the ticket price higher and we much rather offer you a lower entrance fee and you be able to bring your own food, than have you worrying about ingredients every time you go to eat something! Please email us at contact@halflingevents.com if you need this ticket option.
     
  • What activities will be involved during the day, like line dancing, themed sports, storytelling, or performances? Or is this just a relaxed social event?
    -We will have lots of activities planned for the day. We will have live music playing throughout the day for dancing, we will have storytelling/book reading, and sports such as 3-legged races & horseshoes, but we will have a little bit of time for a relaxed time to just socialize.
     
  • Will there be any sparring with LARP weapons allowed in certain areas?
    -No weapons are allowed, LARP or real. 
     
  • Is this just a one-day event? And is there an option for camping on-site the night before or after? 
    -The event will be just the day. People may start arriving at 11:00 am and everyone will leave the property at 5 pm to allow our team to pack up. The event is at a working horse farm, so there is no camping allowed at the event. If you'd like to camp, the Greenville and Anderson areas offer tons of beautiful spots for camping & exploring!
     
  • Can you clarify the stated goal of this event? Is it intended to be very immersive but low-key and informal? Or is it kind of a mix of immersive and mundane, like a Renaissance Faire?
    -This is an event for the whole family. With Weekend Warrior we are limited to only adults and this gives the chance for your whole family to enjoy a day of fun. We are encouraging everyone to dress in Hobbit attire but it is not mandatory for elaborate costumes, since we are trying to make it as affordable as possible for everyone. Please see our Pinterest Board here for inspiration! 
  • Are dogs allowed? (leashed or unleashed)
    -Because the event is held at a working farm, no pets are allowed to be brought.
