The Shire of Krakenfjord invites one and all to a weekend of fighting and feasting on August 22, 23 and 24 in Vernon, BC.

Our 8th Annual Holmgang Tournament will once again feature the traditional-style Holmgang Heavy tournament, with two finalists fighting a best-of-three bout while standing toe-to-toe on the same cloak. The winner earns the right to carry the mighty axe Spine-Splitter for the next year.

Rapier fighters will engage in competition to find the Holmgang tourney-winner. Format TBA.

There will be an Arts & Sciences competition on the site. This year�¢??s theme will be open; documentation is highly recommended

Target archers will compete throughout the weekend.

Our Saturday night Bardic competition will be held around the fire; theme for this is also open. Come and hear our local troubadours or perform a piece of your own.

Our kitchen will be open for meals all weekend. A meal plan is available for $10.00 per person, which includes 2 breakfasts & 2 lunches ($2.50 per meal; can�¢??t beat that).

Saturday night we will be holding a feast. Cost is $8 per person. Please reserve your feast tickets (to be paid for at gate) with the autocrats, as there is limited seating in the hall.

Friday night we will have a potluck feast supplied by the shire as a welcoming hot meal for the weary travelers.

Our Pied Piper will be organizing a Mini Bardic and Arts & Sciences Competition.

Merchants are welcome. Please contact the Autocrat.
