Join us for a visit to the past as we share our knowledge through recreating history. If you have ever enjoyed tales of knights and ladies, then this is the event for YOU!
Spectators enjoy watching the Tournaments. There will be both armored and rapier fighting to see. Choose your champion and cheer from the gallery!
Arts and Sciences will be displayed to inspire and enlighten those who share the love of beautiful things made by local artisans. We will have classes throughout the day. There will be several competitions and contests. YOU can help determine the winner!
We will also have a exhibition of medieval life: a Viking A-frame, a European pavilion, and an amazing Yurt used by the nomads!
There will be children's activities!
What is medieval life without Court? Court will be held on the hill at the day’s end. Come experience the magic, pageantry and splendor.
There will be a feast will be served directly after Court. Limited to the first 70, there is a $7 Adult/$5 Children under 10 donation requested for feast places.
To finish our day, we will have a bardic circle, aka performers, around the fire led by the Royal Bard, Mistress Dervila ni Leanon. The stories and music are a delight to all!
