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!
