The Barony of Wealdsmere proudly invites you to attend our annual Oktoberfeast and Toys for Tots Tournament! Please come join us at the Redeemer Lutheran Church for a day of fun and frolic! Help us celebrate the Harvest with bountiful food and joyous friendship. We promise you a day of tournaments, dancing, delicious foods and glorious occupation! Come dance with the Marines! We humbly ask that you help us collect toys for that most Worthy organization Toys for Tots, that we may grant a Merry Christmas for children in need.
As always we will give all comers the opportunity to fight for honor and glory in the areas of Heavy Combat, Rapier Combat, YAC, Games and Arts and Sciences.
The Event is family friendly. There will be Youth and Parent activities throughout the day. We have a beautiful new site with a nursery and playground! (Parents are responsible for their children’s activities at all times!)
