One day I truely hope to see this wonder for myself. I have hoped to ask someone to show me about, but keep getting cold feet at the last minute. One day... ;>

I visited this lovely camp. It is a must do on next years list too. But I have to admit that the party was a bit freaky. Might need to visit during daylight hours next time.

The Casa actually has a formal open house right before the Hoity Party. Everyone at the Casa is extremely friendly and we love showing it off anytime - it's the main reason why it's built!

How long does it usually take to set this up?

Casa Bardicci has the nicest spread of any encampment at Pennsic.  
I have enjoyed the Hoity Toity party the past 2 years and expect to have a great time next year too!

Casa Bardicci grows more extravagantly beautiful each year. I must return to the War once more just to see this in the real. This is what Pennsic and the SCA are about.

Good lord. The wonderment that is Bardicci!

This is the first year the Casa has graciously accepted me as a guest. They said that last year, they were still putting in screws during the Hoity Party. It's so well known that construction takes so much time that someone showed up to the Hoity this year with their screwgun! But all for naught because it only took five days for the major construction this year, which is a new record. They hope things will go even better next year. Practice makes perfect.

I spent some of my nicest moments at Pennsic here with the friendly and wonderful people of Bardicci. What they do inspires me to dream the dream!

I could see the outer loggia from Maison de Lune (across from Vlad's). Beautiful! Maybe next year, I'll get closer.

This was my first pennsic that I was able to partake in all that pennic has to offers in libation. The hoity party was one of the most amazing parties that I went to that week. I am making a special costume next year just for the party. I cant wait to see it next year.

Really beautiful work, too bad that a lot more camps aren't that talented or want to put the effort into construction.

I have been going to War for several years and have heard about the Hoity Toity party but have never had the chance to get to it. Is it a themed party or just a "come join the fun" gathering?
Artemisia Moltabocca:    Fri Apr 14 10:29:11 2006
The Hoity party is by invite, purchased gold token or even high bribery (if you're lucky). Up to midnight, it's mostly all about Royalty - Kings, Queens and even the owner of the campgrounds attended the 2005 event. Dress to impress! At midnight, the gates open to all. But I hear those who stand in line outside the gates until midnight create quite a party of their own.  
The Lowly Party is more informal. It's a servants party and is held a few days before the Hoity. By invite, silver token or low bribery (if you're lucky). Again, the doors open at midnight to all.
