Anticipated activities

Preliminary Information about the June Faire Tournaments: We are putting together the final design of the June Faire Tournaments and there is a complete explanation of everything available here (pdf). Some highlights: The Diamond Tournament featuring teams of one rapier and one heavy fighter; The Weapons Master Tournament; Archery Tournament; Rapier Tournament and more!

The Arts and Sciences of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance will be on full display in the Artisans and Craftsman's Village. Practically any trade or art practiced will be on display. From cooking to wood-working. From black-smithing to weaving. A full range of fiber arts will be shown. A potters wheel will be in full production with their wares for display and for sale. The Village this year will be the largest yet!

Living History: In addition to the demonstrations of the Village, a full set of encampments will be on display so that all guests may wander through them and enjoy how we enjoy a weekend in re-creation in pavilions, with banners flying and demonstrations on how we personally enjoy a weekend in re-creation of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

The Marketplace: Each year we scour the lands of the Kingdom to find merchants to fill our Marketplace who display the best of the wares that can be found in the SCA.

Music and the Bardic Arts: Listen as musicians wander the site playing music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance on instruments that were played in that time period. Story-tellers will enchant the crowds as they tell the stories of the ages, and of the modern re-created ages. There may also be demonstrations of dancing from the period in stages specially set-up on site to show-case the dancing styles of the time.

If we are truly fortunate, the King and Queen of the lands of An Tir will be in attendance and will delight all on site with their grace, their chivalry and their presence!
