Baronial Birthday of Stonemarche Event date: October 19th, 2013
Hosted by Barony of Stonemarche - Newport, NH
Event Last Modified: October 6th, 2013
Event details
The Barony of Stonemarche is celebrating its 26th Birthday.  Join us at the beautiful South Congregational Church in Newport, NH as we commemorate our history and greet the future. 

Stonemarche is proud to host the Northern Region Arts & Science competition along with selecting our own Baronial Artisan.  (more details below)

Throughout the day there will be classes and games of skill such as Chess, Nine Men Morris, and Bocce. 

There will be armored and rapier combat tournaments.
Depending on the number of armored fighters who attend, we will hold either a double elimination or Round Robin format.  In addition, a prize will be awarded for the best death during the tournament.  So, bring your weapons, shields, and be prepared to ham it up for the public and assembled gentles.
For those rowdies who wield a rapier there will be a return to Le Canard Gros, the best tavern south of Calais.  Bring your rapier wit and drinking vessels for this all out tavern brawl, sure to see many a purse and person cut!  If your skill is keen there will be booty to be had.

Their Excellencies Xavier and Maria will hold a Birthday Court for any presentations to the Barony. 

As the cooks of Stonemarche are renowned throughout the kingdom, there will be a light day board and sumptuous feast to astound your senses and fill your bellies.
Please address any feast or allergy questions to:
Lady Lilie of Eastham
mka Carolyn Henderson
(603) 953-3015

If you are able to walk once feast is finished, there will be a Birthday Ball for those who enjoy the finer art of dance.

Merchants are encouraged to bring their wares to sell and there will be space provided for an SCA yard sale, so bring your extra SCA things to sell or trade.


No celebration is complete without the work of the artists, artisans, and makers of the Known World, for it is through their efforts that we can step back in time.  Bring forth your best arts and sciences and enter the Stonemarche Baronial and Northern Region A&S Championships!

Items may have been entered in previous competitions or displays.
All skill levels welcome.
