For ten years, October has brought war to the southern lands of Atlantia. Always a conflict among friends, War of the Wings has resolved important disputes and ... um … delicate situations, but most importantly, it has brought much joy and friendship to our fair Kingdom and Her friends.
The gates will open at noon on Wed. Oct. 14 and close at noon on Sun. Oct 18th. Join us on the verdant fields of beautiful Elchenburg Castle as we celebrate the tenth anniversary of War of the Wings while helping to settle the matter of Perversely Pilfered Peeps and Gregariously Grappled Goats as the Baronies of Black Diamond and Highland Foorde air grievances against their sister Baronies of Hidden Mountain and Notinghill Coill.
The event boasts nearly every activity practiced in the SCA from Armored & Rapier Fighting to Artistic Competitions, Classes, and Displays. From Shopping to Period Science. From Horse Jousts to Archery Shoots, the Performing Arts to Heraldic Research. From May Poles to Fireside Friendships. War of the Wings X will truly have something for everyone!
