Return to Camelot-An Arthurian Deed
May 12- 14, 2017
Barony of Raven's Cove
During the late Middle Ages men of arms--knights and professional soldiers--exercised themselves in various forms of competitions to both refine their skills and as a matter of national honor. By their deeds these knights not only won fame, but social prestige and wealth achieved by catapulting their names far and wide through the risk of a potentially mortal chivalric feat of arms. Return to the times of King Arthur, his knights and when chivalry and honor reigned supreme in the land. Join us for a day of pageantry, prowess, love and beauty. Relive the tales of bravery! We welcome you to Camelot, revisited here in our beloved Atlantia!
Combatants on both the armored and rapier field will be tested not only in their use of weapon but their love for those they represent. Songs, poems, boasts of love, these shall also be tests on the field!
Archers will have to prove their skill on the range. May their arrows be quick and true!
Equestrians have also been invited to show their love for not only their consort but the beautiful steeds upon which they ride! Their skill shall also be challenged throughout the day.
Our very talented artisans will also show their skill in displays, filled with some of the most beautiful of Atlantia’s treasures!
There will be various prizes awarded throughout the day for many contests, so come prepared to dazzle the crowd and win the Consort Gallery over with feats performed!
