Join us for the Canton of Silverharts 18th Defenders Tournament.

Yes, it is in fact the 18th Defender, not the 20th – but it will still be an awesome event!!

The populous of Silverhart invites you to come join us in our revelry while competing for the titles of Defender: Heavy, A&S, Archery, Thrown weapons, Rapier, Siege Cooking, Games, Bardic, and Youth Archery/Armored combat/Rapier. 

The person who wins the most competitions will be declared our next Overall Defender. We have planned a day of fun, classes, games and feasting. Merchants are welcome. There will be games for the kids, classes, a feast and shenanigans for all!

The Canton will again be hosting a community Peasants Feast fund raiser feast on Saturday evening.

We are once more at the lovely forested Lancaster Estate.
