Rescheduled from April 2020. Join us on Facebook to learn more about planning and research for this event.
Every weekend we drive up in our trucks, unload our stuff and recreate the medieval tournament. Did you ever wonder what travel took for them?
Come join us for a 1360-1460 focused period play space with Horses! As with all our Horsie Period Play Spaces time appropriate attire admired but not required!
We will gather at a Crossroads village in continental Europe to explore medieval travel and travel time activities. Thursday will be geared at set-up and exploring the site. Friday and Saturday we immerse ourselves in our period play-space. Sunday will be final clean up and heading home.
Riders, Walkers and Cooks!
(Friday and Saturday All Day) Lady Heather is designing shrines for your pilgrim-aging pleasure. Consult the maps in town before venturing out. Don't forget to collect your pilgrims badges. Beware of brigands looking to steal your rings along the road. ***Dear potential larcenous souls, we are looking for some brigands to rob our Pilgrims on Friday and Saturday on an unpredictable schedule. Apply with Lady Heather if you are interested.
(All Weekend) There will be a Cook's play day throughout the event.
Come work on your recipes over open flames. Lady Tellina (Tiffany Ballard) will be coordinating the cooks play date. (Food is NOT PROVIDED at this event. All participants are expected to provided their own food.)
(Friday and Saturday Nights) The crossroads village will have a tavern. Join us Friday and Saturday nights for libations, socializing and gaming. Bring your own drinks and games or enjoy some of ours.
(Friday Early Evening) The village is over run with rabbits. We need to clear them out with sticks and nets. We will have jobs for both riders and walkers.
(Saturday All Day) The local estate owner has given us permission to hunt his grounds. The huntsman recommends bringing swords, spears, javelins and bows. More details on the estate boundaries available in the village. Complete at your own pace.
(Saturday AM) Someone left behind a fresh combat manuscript by the German Hans Talhoffer in the tavern a few weeks back. Work on the ground or mount up Saturday morning while we explore it's teachings (Rossfecten practice).
(Saturday PM) Bring some food for yourself and some food to share. Let's load up the pack equids and head out for a picnic. Meet in the village to give your food to the riders to have it transported via horse back (NO HOT CONTAINERS). Proceed to the picnic area mounted or on foot via one of several routes.
