Event details

Join us this Memorial Day weekend as we shake the rust off from winter, connect with friends old and new, and celebrate 25 years of Panteria! 

The Shire of Panther Vale invites you to Camp Farnsworth, located in Thetford, Vermont on over 240 acres of beautiful, northern forest, meadows, fields, and views of a 50-acre lake (the lake is off-site for Panteria).  Site includes a newly renovated dining hall, and a full opt-in meal plan.  The populace may camp in their own tents or pavilions, or register for sleeping quarters that allow campers to access some of the comforts of home, like bathrooms and showers.  Participants may stay in small or large cabins, treehouses, canvas tents on platforms, or bring their own tents.

The Shire of Panther Vale presents exciting tournaments, melee games and practices, and training for armored, combat archery, rapier combatants and thrown weapons.  There will also be opportunities to learn, authorize, and participate in these activities.  In addition to these marshal activities we also have equestrian games. 

There will be an Arts and Sciences display, and a chance to interact with nobles looking to improve their craft.

Youth Activities have a long history at Panteria.  There is a full spectrum of activities for growing folks.

If you are new to the SCA, this is a perfect introduction to how we do summer events, and we have activities designed just for you! 

There will be a history display, and a tea with the some of the Panther Vale founders.  Take part, and help us make the next 25 years amazing.

Bring the whole family and get ready to embark upon a glorious Panteria XXV!

This event announcement will be updated periodically as details arrive.

Participants are reminded and advised - DO NOT DRIVE ON THE GRASS.  Let's work together to keep Panteria at this wonderful site!
