The Feast of Sir John Barleycorn - The Knighting of John Barleycorn



Planning has already started for our the feast of old John Barleycorn and we hope this will be one of the best!  We have hosted this event for years beyond count (but frequently argue how many of them there have been!) We will see Thrown Weapons, Archery, Heavy Armored combat (featuring the Return of Sir Edward`s Challenge), Fencing, Youth Combat, Dancing, Brewing and A&S contests, A&S display, Period table and lawn games, many varied classes, and a grand feast with a Masque in the honor of our patron, Sir John Barleycorn.

This year we are using the theme of remembering the Knighting of Sir John Barleycorn as a reason to celebrate all things chivalrous! There will be a renewed focus on the martial prowess of the young. There will be an effort to have much more time and venues for all of the martial activities. There will be a chance to show the proper courtly behavior at the grand ball! This year should be a grand time!

We proudly can share that we are hosting this year`s Metalsmith Symposium. In short every sort of smiting or working of metal and glass will be shown or taught.

As in recent years we boast a site with a beautiful great field, a large hall, a stone amphitheater, indoor and outdoor class space, wifi, and yurts for overnight stay (see FAQ for more details on all of this.)
