The Beggars' Feast is an Alethi tradition.

At each occasion, the host duplicates the feast and invite the poorest of people to share in their revelry.

In Alethkar, it is tradition at any banquet of the king to also feed the less fortunate. The Feast is held in a separate room in which any poor people may attend and eat the same as a the king and his guests.

Szeth walked through the Beggar's Feast on his way to assassinate Gavilar.[1] While there, he witnesses a seemingly drunken old beggar speaking gibberish. The old beggar is the Herald Jezrien whom Dalinar visits when he needs alcohol.[2]

The Beggars' Feast is cancelled by Queen Aesudan during the War of Reckoning.[3]
