Vallaki is a town in the north central part of the valley of Barovia. Its burgomaster is Baron Vargas Vallakovich, a man apparently obsessed with maintaining high spirits in an attempt to keep Strahd at bay.
The town routinely has festivals to try to raise spirits, although most townsfolk secretly believe them to be a joke. A recently-completed festival was the Wolf's Head Jamboree, and the next is the Festival of the Burning Sun.
Tanine, Tine, Cora, and Khagon are banished from Vallaki due to interference in the baron's law. Izek Strazni has promised to kill them on sight if they try to come into the town again.
