COVID-19 Statement

The East Kingdom and the event staff are committed to making sure that our friends & families stay safe. Kingdom guidelines for COVID safety change often. Masks that conform to CDC standards and worn properly over the nose and mouth are required of all attendees over the age of 2 in all indoor spaces or in public tents or pop-ups with 3 or 4 walls up and may only be lowered briefly for eating or drinking. Masks are optional when outdoors and we encourage frequent handwashing and social distancing. Please take whatever steps you feel are necessary for your own sense of safety beyond the stated mandates.

All persons over the age of 5 are now required to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the event. All persons over the age of 18 must also present government issued photo ID or a valid SCA membership card. Please have these in hand when checking in.

Event details

Let's play a game of you and you and you and you and she and him fight.

The Shire of Quintavia has discovered gold and more in our hills, and while the Barony of Smoking Rocks has graciously "guarded" our mining operations for the last year, Quintavia has many neighbors who may wish to "liberate" us from this arrangement.  What's more, our miners have recently discovered a magnificent stone that glows with an inner light.

There shall be competitions in all of the combat arts, A&S challenges for artisans, War Points specifically encouraging Youth participation, and even a riddle contest.  All are invited to come support the Shire's neighbors in their bids to see which Barony shall earn the right to bear the Arkenstone!

This event is being co-sponsored by the Shire of Quintavia, the Barony of Carolingia, and the Barony of Bergental.

Site Opens: 18:00 Friday
Site Closes: 18:00 Sunday
