|The Barony of Iron Bog bids greetings to the populace of the mighty East Kingdom.|
We have been invited back to Pillage the Village!
The festival will be held at the Mill Race Village in Mt. Holly on June 15, 2013 from 12-6pm. We can set up as early as 9am. The roads will be closed at 11am and no further traffic allowed in or out. Vehicles will be allowed back in as soon as the crowd disperses.
This is a public demo, so pomp and heraldic displays are lauded.
As part of the festivities the Baron and Baroness will be choosing their Baronial Fencing Champion in a tournament of the current champion's devising. The tourney will be open to all authorized combatants, but to qualify to be the Baronial Champion you must live within the Barony of Iron Bog or a landed group that touches our borders. The new Baronial Champion will be in service for one year and will choose the format for next year's tournament.
The tourney will not be the only chance for combat either. We are allowing time for pickups where our heavy fighters and fencers can showcase their skills to the crowd in attendance.
And because a man cannot live with fighting alone, we will also be demonstrating our Arts and Sciences as well as having some activities that we will ask the public to participate in or try their hand at.
We are working on a "fashion show" of examples of period dress.
Come take a stroll on our "cat walk". If you would like to participate we ask that you have documentation of your garb so that we may present you properly to those in attendance.
Our outstanding Mistress of Youth, Lady Aibhilin, will have many activities to amuse the young and young at heart.
The festival itself is quite large and a lot of fun, with live performances, merchants, games, Middle Eastern dancing, a beer garden, and much more.
If you are interested in participating in the demo, please contact the autocrat
