Greetings! Let it be known throughout our Sylvan Kingdom and beyond that the Barony of St. Swithin’s Bog Three Day event is again on the horizon! The Barony of St. Swithin’s Bog would like to invite the Known World to join them for a weekend of martial activities, arts, friendship, and celebration as the Great Pennsic War looms ever closer. There will again be an abundance of activities to inspire and excite. This year we invite all to look around and say, “What’s going on around here in 14th Century France!? That’s right! We want to see clothes, tournaments, activities, A&S, and brews from the 14th Century French time period! There will be a full day of martial activities including Heavy Weapons, Youth Fighting, Rapier, Thrown Weapons, and Archery! Back by popular demand we will again hold a brewing competition, and all (21 and over of course) are welcome to sample the Kingdom’s finest libations! There will be an A&S display and competition for both finished and in-progress work. And yes! We will be hosting the 14th Annual Iron Scribe Competition! There are also children’s activities planned for a day of merriment for all! Our Head Cook is preparing an exceptional feast and after an exciting day of events invites all to don your finest and join us for an evening of feasting and friendship. We encourage all to bring candles and your finest feast gear to add to the ambiance of the evening.
