Carnevale di Venezia

March 24, 2018
Dragon's Mist

Washington County, OR

Autocrat: Margaret Fae device6981OP


Celebrate the opulence and pleasures of 16th century Italy. Join Dragon’s Mist for feasting, dancing, and fun diversions on the day of March 24th. Come all and grace Schlegel Hall with costumed beauty. 


Events of the day:


Costume Parade - Our traditional costume competition will begin with a Carnevale inspired parade through the hall early in the day. Participants will have the opportunity to show off their beauty while enjoying the other events of the day, voting will be anonymous, and results will be announced during court. 


Rapier Championship Challenge - The Dragon�s Mist rapier champion challenges those finding themselves worthy to come forward and compete to take his place. Format:

Round 1: 10 minute Bear Pit, each contestant begins the round with their primary weapon in their non-dominant hand. They may switch to their dominant hand once they have lost a bout. Secondaries for the field as a whole will be at Their Excellencies discretion. Only wins are counted. Double kills will be refought once, then are destructive.

Round 2 and 3: repeat round 1

Final Round: The two contestants with the highest victory totals will fight a best of 3, with the only restriction being that Their Excellencies may choose the secondary for each bout.


Arts & Sciences Championship - Single entry, with documentation and oral presentation required. You will have a table space for your display. Your entry will be judged on period methods, materials, and understanding of period context. The entry should contribute to a better understanding of an aspect of period life or material culture. Research papers and consumables are welcome as well as the usual artistic object. Entry can not have previously won a competition, unless it has been sufficiently overhauled and rebuilt into a new entry. Note: The Bardic Championship will be held at the same event. Please enter your performances there. Please visit for complete information. 


Bardic Championship: Theme of the competition is "Songs and Legends." 

Each competitor must present two pieces: one a period song, and one period legend. Examples of legends include tales of Cu Chúlainn of Ireland, Roland of France, and Rustam of Persia. Every culture has them, feel free to explore and find a legend from period that appeals to you. Storytelling performances will be limited to twenty minutes, so it may be best to choose a single story and not, for example, the entire Táin bó Cúailnge. The song may use voice and/or instruments and may be accompanied by other musicians, but the performance of the competitor MUST be the star of the show. If we can't pick you out of a crowd of musicians playing then we can't judge YOUR performance. Both performances must be accompanied by documentation. Bonus: it is allowable for both performances to be the same piece, but it will be performed twice: once to judge the "legend" piece, and once to judge the "song" piece. Two pieces of documentation must still be provided: one for the musical and one for the storytelling aspects. Poems are allowed as an alternative to a song. Original compositions in a period style will also be permitted for the song/poem category, but the inspiration for the composition must be documented.


Indulgence - This dessert competition will feature sinful decadence of all sorts. Participant�s confections will be judged on relation to the theme (Carnevale) and, above all the taste. ***Desserts to share are encouraged whether entered into the contest or not***


Games: Come support the baronial champions cloak fund by purchasing tokens and take part in fun games and frivolity with lovely prizes donated by the populace


Thrown weapons: (format TBD)


Iron Scribal: Note cards will be available to paint. There will be four main divisions - Youth (17 and under), Beginner (painting one year or less), Intermediate (painting two to four years), Advanced (painting more than four years). Judging will take place before court, and results will be announced during court


Through the day we will also have dancing and classes to keep us entertained with everything culminating into a fantastic feast and the court of Their Excellencies Ana and Jose. 


The fee for this event is $15 with a $5 member discount for all those over the age of majority (18). In addition, it is $10 to partake in the feast, and those under the age of 13 are invited to join their adult at no charge. (All fees are based per individual)
