We invite you to make the pilgrimage into the mountains of Santa Barbara for a weekend of feasting and fighting, storytelling and merry-making. The Bard of Darach competition is open to all the bards. Join us for their wit and words. Armoured Combat and Rapier fighters will have tournaments along with other contests and activities for non-fighters.
Be sure to visit the reliquaries of the "saints of the SCA". Many a fighter owes their continuing intelligence to St. Helm de Freon the patron saint of armourers, and autocrats pray to St. Helia de Hands for last minute volunteers. Visit the roadside shrines to these and other "saints" on your way through our Canterbury Tales.
