Event details

Once again we must raise our battle cries and ready ourselves for war.  The time has come to rally our forces and band together at our stronghold.  At Fort Knox we will hold a medieval village encampment and demonstrate our arts and martial prowess.

This public demo will have fencing and heavy list tournaments.  Youth combat is TBA.  Artisans, please come prepared to demonstrate your artistic work.  Musicians and dancers are welcome.  More details will come.

Artisans are allowed to sell their work to both participants and the public, but must maintain the village appearance and actively demonstrate the skills used to create the items they are selling–if you have any questions about this, please contact the autocrat (see below).

As a Maine State Park, this is a dry site.  Dogs are welcome, but must be leashed and picked up after.  Please keep in mind that the public also brings their dogs and plan accordingly.

There is no entry fee for this event.  There will be no dayboard or feast provided. 

Parking will be off site.  Vehicles cannot drive up to the fort entrance between 9am and 5pm (public demo hours).

This site may be difficult for some people with physical disabilities to access.  If you are unfamiliar with the site, please contact the autocrat with questions/concerns.

Public Demo Hours:  9am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday

There is space inside the fort for period tents.  If you do not have a period tent, there are both indoor sleeping accommodations and a place for mundane camping.  Those wishing to stay on site overnight must follow the directions listed below.  Day trippers are welcome.
