Middle Eastern Arts

Greetings to all present, Firstly, allow me to introduce myself. Please call me Mika. I'm honored to serve once again as your Middle Eastern Coordinator this year for our milestone 50th event. Some of you might recall the early days of Pennsic, while for others, this might be your first event! We're all excited to share knowledge, skills, and time for learning and performing, to renew longstanding friendships, and to forge new connections. Don't hesitate to take a class. Shake off the dust, learn something new, and explore new horizons. If you're interested in teaching, please visit University Point to sign up. Although your class may not appear in the "book," it will be added to the daily schedule.

We kindly ask everyone to comply with the tent usage and youth policies for all classes and activities, whether attending or presenting.

The current policy stipulates that youths aged 12 and above can attend classes in public spaces, including the Middle Eastern tent, without the need for a parent or guardian. However, those under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Any individual under the age of 18 must have a responsible adult accompanying them for classes in merchant spaces (including Touch the Earth) or private camps.

Please consult the class description, as some classes are strictly for adults only.

Thank you for everything you do in support of "the dream".

Class Listings and Locations

The Middle Eastern Tent is located on the Great Middle Highway, across from Runestone Park (see map).
