A hearty greeting from your friends in the Shire of Thronwold! Spring is coming and our shire is busy making ready the fields for one of the oldest and most beloved events in An Tir: Sir Eddie’s Tournament!

This year, we invite you to travel to our temperate climate and celebrate Spring with period-style festivities, exciting championship tournaments, a marketplace full of merchants, and a new addition: The Rampant Miffin — a tavern with day food that will delight your taste buds and give you the energy you need to stay all day.

Here’s a few highlights, with more details to come.

Championship Tournaments:

Heavy Holmgang Style Tournament
Rapier Tournament
Archery Tournament
Thrown Weapon’s Tournament
Arts and Sciences Tournament – craft a bunny in any medium

All winners will receive a prize and have the honor of representing the Shire of Thornwold this year as our Champion.

Camping:

Always day tripped Eddies? Try camping with us this year!

Friday night we will have a few pots of warm soup and bread available by donation so no matter what time you arrive, you will have something warm to fill your belly with as you setup camp. As day turns to night, we will gather in the large pavilion for a double-feature movie night.

With a hearty day food menu planned at the Rampant Miffin Tavern and lots of tasty desserts to bid on at the Dessert Auction, you won’t need to plan/pack much food. More details to come as we finalize menus.

The site owner has requested that only service animals be in attendance this year.

New Site:

This year we are pleased to announce that the event will be located at a new site – The Lavender House. We are really excited about the large open space, 40×80 pavilion, and wooded ceremony/court area. There is plenty of room for your encampment and RV parking (boondocking only).

The Lavender House is located in Lynden, WA and just minutes from town if you have any last minute needs (ah hem, or coffee).
