This year we have a wonderful site! Minter Country Gardens – on the same road as Island 22 – you cannot miss it. For all the garden enthusiasts we have 14 acres of beautiful land behind Minter Country Gardens in Chilliwack. Plenty of parking and wonderful utility grass to play and camp on. No floods we promise! We are expecting lots of colourful merchants to surround our erics to tempt you to spend your coin. Heavy, Light, Archery, Rapier, Thrown Weapons, Arts and Science, and Bardic Competitions. (more details will be announced regarding Bardic competition as soon as available). As well we will have a raffle 1) a chest made by Ciaran and Cerridwen similar to the one presented to the King and Queen, 2) a stained glass in medieval style. There will also be a contest for those participating in Merchants row, 1) most colourful merchant tent, 2) most period merchant tent.
Bardic competion will be for a original song new to the populus. Contact Danika at
The proposed A& S competition is for most period encampment. This will be
the first year that individuals or a group can enter. Specific judging criteria will be given out at a closer date to the event, but essentially the competitors will have to identify the
