Event Staff

From the Crown Prints

On Saturday, May 2nd, the House of the Voyagers is again hosting a May Day Tournament & Revel. Our site is Tournament Park at Caltech. The field is located behind the Caltech Athletic Fields and Gym; go to the back of the parking lot and look for a little gate. There is also parking at the Wilson Street end of the park. The park is somewhat small, so anyone planning to bring pavillions should check with the autocrats. First consideration will be given to the Royal, baronial, and other group pavillions, and to authentic encampments. There is also ample shade available.

Schedule for the Day

  • 8:30am Set-up
  • 9:00am Lists open (heavy weapons)
  • 10:00am Opening Court. Lists close 1/2 hr after Opening Court. Closing court will occur after the fighting and before dark

  • Midnight Hall closes


  • Bardic Competition
  • Juggling ("Most Balls" and "Keeping Them Up")

There will also be Maypole dancing, as well as our popular Turkey Legs and Bottomless Cup of Lemonade lunch for a modest fee.
