The Feast of Samain was an eight-day long annual festival observed by the Rigante. It attracted over nine thousand tribesmen and was held in a different settlement from year to year.[1] The celebrations included drinking, feasting and dancing.[2]


The Feast of Samain is obviously a direct reference to Samhain, the real-life Gaelic harvest festival.
