Celtic Revolt

May 22, 2015 to May 25, 2015

Spokane - Spokane County, WA

Autocrat: Olaf of Montanore


Celtic Revolt                                                                                 Barony of Wealdsmere

May 22-25, 2015                                                                 Spokane, WA


          The Celts, they are revolting. The Trolls are revolting too. Somehow the Celts have teamed up with Nordic mythology to bring mayhem to Wealdsmere. Baron Lars and Baroness Kara are calling all available hands to defend our land from almost certain destruction. With your help we can put down the revolting Celts and maybe give the trolls a bath.

          Saturday brings WAR!  Heavy, rapier and YAC battles are planned.  A & S, Spirits and Brining competitions and Seige Cooking adventures abound plus many fun classes and activites.  Sunday will host Championships for the Barony.  Some documentation is needed for A & S and inspiration and heraldic banner is required for entry. 


Calling all merchants, calling all merchants.  Please join us for this fun fill weekend and share your wares. There is no merchant fee, we do ask for a donated item to be used for prizes or Largess. If you would like to have a merchant booth please contact Kayte Blackwell at (put merchant in the subject) or 509-496-2585.
