From the Crown Prints

Join the Barony of Dreiburgen at Rancho Jurupa Park (4800 Crestmore Road, Riverside, CA 92509) for a day of good old-fashioned down home fun.

It is historically accurate (in certain circles) to explain that the Welsh were celebrated in period for their…glorious lack of sophistication. Yes, that’s the way to put it. Here in Dreiburgen, we also wish to celebrate this particular aspect of Welsh medieval culture on our anniversary.

For fighters (armored and rapier), there will be a single elimination tourney with the following twist: any fighter can earn an extra life by getting a sponsor (indicated by a patch upon his or her fighting garment) up to 5 extra lives. Prizes will be given for the Victor of the Tourney and Best Death.

For those whose thrills are found outside the field of combat, there will also be several activities and competitions, including:

  • A Filking Bardic contest – The performance piece Must be a filk. It may or may not be original, but bonus points are granted for original filks that mention Dreiburgen (Think along the lines of “Sweet Home Dreiburgen” or perhaps “I’m Sure Glad I’m a Dreiburgen Boy”)
  • A costume contest for the best representation of Welsh national garb in the theme of the day – Use your imagination. Be able to explain your sartorial choices to the judges.
  • Various on site games
  • Youth activities

There will also be several Halloween-themed activities to celebrate the season.

The site opens at 8:00am and closes at sunset. Anyone interested in merchanting needs to contact the autocrat as there is a separate fee. The site is damp. It is handicapped accessible and pets are permitted on leashes.
