Gallow Games - Carnivale

The Shire of Crystal Crags cordially invites you to come celebrate the survival of winter and the coming of spring as we host a weekend of fun games and merriment as we transform Castle Silver Oak into a medieval Carnivale.

Our entire Shire is stepping up to offer many different games and competitions: Sponge catapults, darts, human chess and checkers, roving rapier, dice and card games, ring toss, coin toss, archery, chariot boffer jousting, caber toss for adults and smalls, boffer fighting, stone throw, and oh so many more!


  • Best wench: Can you pour ale or water on the run? Serve it up with quick wit and a smile?
  • Heavy and rapier competitions: Single elimination tourney for heavy and a roving rapier competition
  • Arts and Sciences: Open to all to determine our A&S champion and this year's special category is any period clothing (non Armor related)

Roving jugglers, dancers, musicians, and entertainers of all types! A medieval market and a consignment table so bring stuff to sell or money to buy. Auction on Sat. Night.

We have a good selection of food merchants, as well as fire pits to cook over! We will be selling Carnival type food in the afternoons (corn dogs, fried turkey legs, etc).

Lord Alexander and Lady Orianna will be selling breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings (biscuits & gravy, eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, cheese hashbrowns, maybe hotcakes, etc)
