Armoured Combat & A Tournament of Winning Hearts

Compete in our Tourney of Winning Hearts to win the one who inspires you a token of love and become Love's Champion.
Each Knight shall be given two hearts to start the day. Every time the fighter is defeated, they shall give one of their hearts to the victor.

Fencing & A Tournament of Winning Hearts

Compete in our Tourney of Winning Hearts to win the one who inspires you a token of love and become Love's Champion.
Each fencer shall be given two hearts to start the day. Every time the fencer is defeated, they shall give one of their hearts to the victor.

Archery & A Cupid Shoot Tourney

Shoot your arrows strong and true into the ‘heart’ of the target, and win a token of love for the one who inspires you.

Flirting Competition

At Gate, each Lady and Lord will be asked if they would like to participate in this game. If they wish, Ladies will be given a small bag of gold pieces. Each Lord who asks to be part of this game at Gate shall receive a small empty bag. Throughout the day, the Lords shall go to the Ladies who are playing and break out the chivalry, engaging rhyming verses, and words of sweet nothings, to win gold from them. Ladies will award the Lord a number of gold for how well she felt he did wooing her. At the end of the night, a single Lord will be the victor.

Love Scrolls & Promissory Notes

Many varieties of scrolls of adoration and tender words shall be at your choosing; Promissory Notes must be filled in with your name,
for those gentles who receive them must know from who to collect their favor. Love Notes may be anonymous, a compliment from an admirer or friend. When you choose one of these scrolls (there are more then 50 different ones available), our Cupids will roll them, tie them with a ribbon, top them off with two Hershey© Chocolates, and personally hand-deliver them to that special someone!

Poetry Pulpit

Stand before the populace and sing a love song to your beloved; recite your favorite romantic poem; or tell sweet tales. Lovely tokens await those who stand and decree their ardor in this fashion!

Lessons of the Heart

Throughout the day, gentles shall be giving small classes on topics of the heart.

Courtly Dancing

May of ye Wolde will be teaching romantic dances in the afternoon.

The Handfasting

Last but not least, our favorite part of our event dedicated to amore—all couples who wish to renew their vows, may participate in our Celtic Handfasting Ceremony. You will need a third person to assist you in your Handfasting. Each couple shall be given a cord to use in the ceremony. (We invite you to also keep them at the end!) No, this isn’t a legally binding marriage!
