LAST CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE MEDIEVAL
CAMPING


AT ITS FINEST FOR THE
SEASON!

 

 

 

A hushed whisper creeps upon the land. Steadily it grows until it is a roar, the roar of the Kraken! 

 

Once again the Shire of Krakafjord will be hosting their Summer’s End gathering on September 16th – 18th. 

To that end we send out this invite to one and all, come if you dare and test yourself against armored warriors, draw your blades and cross them 

with cunningly skilled rapiers. Quest your thirst for knowledge from the wise teachers that will travel from afar. 

Bring your words of wit and song for a bardic circle where many shall enter but there can be only one survivor. 

 

 

There will be a new challenge for those fighters who dare! FIGHTER’S FOLLY! You have to see it to believe it, much laughter will ensue.

 

 

Viking Pillow Bash will make its debut at this event, it’s not your regular sleep over activity.

 

 

Come for fellowship, for challenge, for knowledge, for laughter and
for fun! Come and be a part of our best event yet!

event with lots of things to do and see, we highly recommend that
