Hawkwood's Mid-Summer Chicken Festival
August 28- 30, 2015
Barony of Hawkwood
Come out to the Hawkwood Chicken Festival! We’ll have chickens, and more chickens, and chicken stuff, and stuff about chickens, and chicken flavored stuff, and chickens to eat, chickens to pet, and chickens to just sort of hang out with... It’s pretty much all about the chicken.
Register by August 21 for a discounted gate fee! See the website for details.
Martial Activities: Chicken Themed Thrown Weapons and Archery Tournaments! Baddest Cock on the Block Tourney: Armoured fighting will have a Round Rooster Tourney to determine the Baddest Cock amongst themselves. Super Chicken Munchkin Tourney: Rapier fighters will have a Tourney of Lord Marius' own creation. Starting with single sword, they will draw Munchkin-Type cards throughout the tourney which will affect their style of fighting.
