Where: Redeemer Lutheran Church, 3606 S. Schafer Road, Spokane Valley WA 99206

The Barony of Wealdsmere proudly invites you to attend our annual Oktoberfeast and Toys for Tots Tournament!  Please come join us at the Redeemer Lutheran Church for a day of fun and frolic! Help us celebrate the Harvest with bountiful food and joyous friendship. We promise you a day of tournaments, dancing, delicious foods and glorious occupation! Come dance with the Marines! We humbly ask that you help us collect toys for that most Worthy organization Toys for Tots, that we may grant a Merry Christmas for children in need.

As always we will give all comers the opportunity to fight for honor and glory in the areas of Heavy Combat, Rapier Combat, YAC, Games and Arts and Sciences.

The Event is family friendly. There will be Youth and Parent activities throughout the day.  We have a beautiful new site with a nursery and playground! (Parents are responsible for their children’s activities at all times!)

Back by Popular Demand: Frugal SCAdian garment contest! Create and entire SCA ensemble for under $25. The winner last year created several beautiful outfits all for under $25 combined! She will be hard to beat! Walk the runaway with your best strut!

Viking Longboat Races: Get up to 4 team members and build a longboat! Longboats may be ridden in, worn, pushed, pulled or carried across the finish line! First team to get across the line with their boat wins! The race is open to 3 age groups: 12 and up (I would say adults, but let’s face it, we are all kids at heart); 2-12, and best baby longboat (2 and under, baby may be carried).

Remember to compete in any contest you are requested to donate a $5 (or more) unwrapped toy to help the US Marine  Toys-for-Tots program to provide Gifts for Children that may not have a Merry Christmas without this service.

A bounteous and tasty traditional Viking dinner is being grown, yes, grown and prepared by Olaf. (What do Vikings want? Meat! What else do they want? More meat!) He’s even promised to butcher the cow before he serves it. Menu will posted at a later date. 

Merchants Fees: Merchants are welcome. A donation of a $5 (or more) unwrapped toy is requested in lieu of a fee for all merchants. Unlimited merchants welcome and you will have table space in the middle of all the activities this year!
