Site opens 9:00 AM and closes at 4:00 PM
Once again, the Barony of Endewearde will be hosting a rousing and raucous festival of armored combat and merriment. At the end of the day, the Endewearde armored combatant who stands victorious will be named Endewearde’s newest Champion of Armored Combat. Endewearde’s current armored champion, The Honorable Lord Gruffydd Abernathy, will oversee the challenges of the day and provide fun for the combatants as well as those in the galleries.
The event will be held at the same site as the Endewearde Hunt, for those familiar with that event. It’s a rustic, wooded site with plenty of room to roam and enjoy some peace and quiet between the bouts or during the lunch break. There’ll be a large cook fire maintained by Endewearde’s Court of Royal Foresters for anyone who wishes to prepare a hot lunch during the midday break. Above ground fire pits and grills are welcome, as well. Note that there is no running water on site so bring your own and please be prepared to pack out all your own trash as there will be no dumpsters.
COMBATANTS: During the tournament, a tourney tree will be used. Armored combatants will need to have a wooden shield plaque on which a representation of your arms must be painted. Blank shields will be provided ahead of time as needed.
MERCHANTS: Merchants and vendors are encouraged to attend! In keeping with the festival atmosphere, there will be no merchants’ row or merchant booths. Instead, merchants and vendors will be expected to hawk their wares through the crowds gathered around the arena. Please contact the event steward with any questions.
ADULT BEVERAGES: Though there is no running water on site, the site is WET.
PETS: Pets are welcome on site but they must remain leashed. Owners are required to clean up after their pets. We reserve the right to ask someone to leave should their pet becomes a nuisance or a danger.
TRASH: This is a “pack it in, pack it out” site. There will be no public trash receptacles.
SITE FEE: $10 for 14 years old and older, $5 member discount
LOCATION: 2910 Western Ave, Newburgh, ME 04444-4758
