This paper discusses my Themed Event Project, Camelot, which also served as my hospitality management capstone project. With a team of four other hospitality management students, I planned and executed a creative themed event surrounding the overarching theme of Medieval times and the Royal court of Camelot. Decorations, food, and entertainment for the event were based on Medieval culture to create a royal castle experience for guests to dine like kings and queens for the evening. This paper will outline all details of the event such as floor diagrams, decorations, menu items and entertainment. It will also outline analyses of all event aspects from the post-event perspective. Overall, my experience working on this event exposed me to all aspects of event management from the planning stage to actual execution months later. This paper will serve as a summary of the event as well as a representation of what I have learned through this hands-on learning opportunity in the Hart School of Hospitality Management and the JMU Honors College.
