Lyondemere Anniversary
Jul 8 @ 4:00 pm – Jul 9 @ 4:00 am

Facebook event page.

Phoenix Festival, celebrating rebirth and renewal.

Join the Barony of Lyondemere as we invest our new Baron and Baroness, Pierre de Dieppe and Avicia de Na Baiona and celebrate all manner of rebirth and renewal with the following activities:

Martial Combat.
There will be lists in armored and rapier combat to determine the baronial champions. Specific format will be decided on the number of entrants. A Champion is the Baronial representative to the martial community. Prospective champions should be prepared to answer questions, respond to challenges, and likewise represent their martial art to the Baron and Baroness. Lyondemere champions are given an honorary position on the Baronial retinue and their Lyondemere gate fees are covered for the length of their service. Please consider these responsibilities and privileges when making your decision to enter this list, especially if you are already the champion of another barony.

Renewed Art & Science display and contest.
Many of us re-purpose objects in our projects; curtains and tablecloths become garb, yarn from a sweater is woven into a belt, an old necklace provides just the right beads, damaged cups or silverware is melted down to the casting pot, etc. Show us your recycled project and enter it in the contest where we will award a People’s Prize, Baron & Baroness’ Prize and a Laurels’ Prize. Entries should have documentation describing what was re-used; historic and process documentation is not required.

Feasting Progress.
Shortly after court Their Excellencies Pierre and Avicia invite one and all to join them for lunch. Meats, breads, and cheeses (many crafted by members of the barony) will be offered buffet style so our new Baron and Baroness can greet everyone.

Re-Home your Relics Fundraiser.
Lyondemere Anniversary wouldn’t be complete without our “Basket Drawing” fundraiser. This time we are offering forgotten, unused, and otherwise unloved but serviceable objects from our own collections so that they might find a new home and new life. And it’s your opportunity to offer a usable, SCA-appropriate object for this endeavor. A donation will garner one ticket for the drawing that can otherwise be bought for $1 or 6 for $5.
We are grateful for your participation in our annual fundraiser.

Lyondemere after dark.
Enjoy the warm evening as we keep the park lighted enough to enjoy a sunset court, al-fresco feast (details to come), and a bardic circle hosted by the LyonBard. All bards and enthusiastic audience members are welcome to stay through the evening and enjoy the pleasant weather, joyful music, and one another’s company.

Their Majesties invite you to celebrate the coronation of Their Heirs! The theme for the day will be inspiration, in honor of the good nobles whom have inspired us. You are encouraged to bring small tokens of thanks and kind words to give to those you find inspirational, and in case you do not have any on hand there will be some available for a donation to the Kingdom Travel Fund. Also, as has become a grand tradition here in Caid, Sir Artus Quintus will be sponsoring the Dirty Dozen Donation Derby. All entrants must create twelve items based on a theme that are suitable for largesse, and the person who created the set voted most popular by the populace will win one item from each entry, leaving Their Majesties with eleven items to spread during Their travels throughout the known world.
