Barony of Grey Niche Presents:

Beltaine: “The Fairy Tale Tournament”

April 25-27, 2014

Piersol Group Camp, Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park

910 Riddick Road, Millington, Tn 38053

 

Once upon a time in a land where fairy tales and dreams were real, was a magical barony called GreyNiche. Grey Niche had Kings and Queens a ‘plenty, mighty Knights, incredible artisans, a hard working populace and a beautiful Baroness. Every spring the Barony would gather for a festival full of merrymaking and mischief.


Come join us for merrymaking or mischief, as we start the celebrations with a drum circle, and bardic competition on Friday evening. You may even find a gnome or a fairy amidst the crowd. Stay and enjoythe festivities on Saturday where we will begin with a redcarpet processional, followed by a TOC tournament and Baronial Silver Torc champion. There will be a Sir William Tell Archery competition, as well as a scavenger hunt. Along with those activities the day will be filled with children’s activities, A and S competition and classes.

The evening will be a magical evening with a Fairy Tale Ball, so come as your favorite character, either period or Fairy Tale, for a costume contest. Stay for tasty treats, but try to avoid the poisoned apples.
