Festival of Maidens

Once again, in the grand tradition of the Midrealm, the Shires of Wurm Wald and St. Carol on the Moor will be hosting all fighters, artisans, and the general populace at the 44th annual

Festival of Maidens –
Daughters of the Dragon!

January 21-22, 2017 in the Shire of Wurm Wald

Please refer to pages on the drop-down festival of Maidens menu for information that is not on this event home page. This site will continue to be updated as more details develop.

Our theme this year is the Daughters of the Dragon. Each combatant will name a consort before they begin fighting – either a daughter of the dragon who inspires you, or someone who inspires you to be a better daughter of the dragon yourself. The winner and their consort will be presented to the Crown at evening court, along with a prize to be presented to their consort.

All fighters are asked to have a consort for the main tournament in both rapier and heavy to present to Their Royal Majesties, King Edmund and Queen Kateryn, should they win.

Adults –  $15 (member discount: $10)
Youth under 16 and UIUC students – Free!
