Evenings in Appleholm: Pilgrimage to Pride, May 31

The Canton of Appleholm invites you to join us for a sociable evening of historically-themed fun and glamor.

On Friday May 31, starting at 7 PM, we’ll visit our local progressive gothic cathedral, St. John’s, for a medieval-themed Pilgrimage to Pride event hosted by Internet personality the Greedy Peasant. Expect fabulous attire, cocktails, crafting stations, and campy performances.

Historical clothing is optional but encouraged, especially in bright chromatic hues to match the pride rainbow theme.

The cathedral is located on Amsterdam Avenue at 112th Street. The closest subways are the 1 train or the B/C lines, both of which have Cathedral Parkway / 110th Street stations; there are also numerous bus lines in the area.

We’ll gather on the steps out front (or in the vestibule if the weather is inclement) and enter as a group. (If you miss us at the entrance, call Mathghamhain at 917-502-7795 to link up with us inside.) The event should last about two hours.

Tickets are available for $25 via the cathedral; higher-priced tickets are available for those who want to financially support the event, but they do not come with any extra perks.

The building is ADA accessible, with a ramp to bypass the front steps. Masks are optional.

This is not an SCA-organized event, so we’ll be joined by lots of other folks who are into history and DIY fashion, and might get a chance to connect with other people who share our interests.
