  2. Adult Song and Dance
  3. Adult Spoken

You must sign up with the current Champion, Lady Emma Griffin, prior to the start of the Bardic Competition to be considered.  Extra points will be awarded for period pieces.

Each division will have a prize.  However, the overall champion will be the judges' favorite entry from all the divisions.

A&S Champion's Tourney:

Here is the information the Tourney for those who are preparing their entries:

There will be three divisions for the entries:

  1. Beginnger, which will require no documentation other than to be able to verify that the art was in existence in period.
  2. Intermediate, which will have documentation and is for people who have never won A&S contests before.
  3. Experienced, for people who have won contests before and who are ready to be held to the highest scrutiny.
Each level will have a prize.  However, the overall champion will be chosen by populace choice.


Baroness' Brine Delicacies Competion:

In the spirit of fun and a love of pickled foods, Her Excellency, Baroness Kara, will be holding a competition for the best pickled fruit, vegetable, and/or protein.  All pickled food items must have been prepared by the person entering the competition.  All persons wishing to enter should bring either one large unopened jar or two small unopened jars of the item/items they are entering.  Entries will be judged on taste, texture, and appearance with additional points being given for unique display of the entry.  So bring your best pickled food, and see if you can win the pickling prize!

Subtlety Contest:

Do you have an interest in medieval cooking?  Have you always wanted to make food that looks like something else?  Well, here is your chance.  Subtleties took a wide range of forms throughout the period from simply vividly colored foods (like frumenty) to more elaborate displays representing allegorical, mythological, or historical events (e.g. models of castles, cooked meats redressed to look like the animal they originated from).  Entrants must include a list of ingredients with their entry.  Documentation is not required for this contest, but you can present it with your entry if you so choose.

Siege Cooking Contest:

Participants will be provided a bag of ingredients and three recipes. The recipes will be written in Old English; so the participants must either be able to read it or decipher it. Participants will have 2 and a half hours to complete the recipes. They must bring their own serving and cooking gear. They must be present for while their entry is being judged and be able to describe it to the judges.  There will be a limited number of supplies for this contest.  Those wishing to enter are asked to contact the Event Stewards (contact information below) prior to the event so that enough supplies will be available for those wishing to enter.

Silent Auction:

A silent auction will be held at Celtic Revolt as a fundraiser for the Barony's Sergeants Trials.  The auction is being hosted by the Grand Bazaar on Merchant's Row.  Bidding will begin after morning Court on Saturday, and it will close just prior to Closing Court on Sunday.  Anyone wishing to donate an item to be placed in the silent auction is encouraged to contact the event's Merchant Coordinator.  His contact information can be found below.
