This is a weekend camping event that usually occurs the last weekend in March. Mixed Weapons War typically includes tournaments in all martial combat styles rapier, hard suit, archery, and thrown weapons as well as a bardic competition and combat sewing. It is also during this event where we welcome new baroness and baron with an investiture ceremony and when the current baroness and baron step down at the end of their allotted reign.

This is a weekend camping event that usually occurs the last weekend in before Halloween (October 31). Every year the Barony allows the populace to compete for the coveted “Champion” spots for all of our major categories, Archery, Thrown Weapons, Rapier, Hard Suit, Bardic, and Arts and Sciences. These winners get to determine the style tournaments held all throughout the following year. In addition, we have a competition for our Chatelaine, who acts as the Head Lady In Waiting for the Baroness, and the Overall Champion, who is in charge of the Guard who protects the Baroness and ensures we have all equipment on site and set up. During Champions, the Baroness and Baron release the Court and Guard from the previous year and the current populace is invited to join the Court and Guard for the upcoming year. The highlight of the event is bestowing our highest award in the Barony by inducting members of the populace to our Permanent Court and Guard.

This is a one day event in June. This event gives SCA people the opportunity to clear out any unwanted fabric or other sewing notions. While bartering is encouraged, we allow the populace to sell any SCA related goods. Traditionally we also recognize the Lord and Lady of the Year at this event, there is an ugly fabric contest, and a fabric melee at the end where all unwanted fabric is piled up and people may dive into the pile to fight for the spoils.

This is a one day event in December. Solstice is our holiday celebration where we usually feature a feast and a table decorating contest. In addition, we typically host a white elephant exchange and a youth exchange. Other activities may include other homey activities, such as a baked goods exchange/challenge and an ornament decorating contest. While this event varies by who is running it, there is usually entertainment either as a bardic and/or dancing.
