The Ice Dragon is coming!


Once again the Rhydderich Hael invites the Known World to join the Barony for a day of food, fighting, pageantry, and fellowship. All set in the castle like setting of the historical Connecticut street armory! Ice Dragon offers a wide variety of activities and there is no excuse to go home unfulfilled.

Fighting: Ice Dragon offers a day full of heavy combat and fencing. The spacious first floor parade hall offers multiple lists for bear pits, pick up fights, and if time allows the odd melee and team events. With well over a hundred fighters expected it should prove a challenging and exciting day!

Salons: Located on the second floor and overlooking the fighting are the personal salons. Each Salon is a unique display of food, drink, and pageantry hosted by a mix of households, local groups, and individuals. People can enjoy relaxing in their private space all while getting a bird’s eye view of the fighting on the first floor. Salon space will book fast so make sure to reserve space as soon as possible.

Arts and Science: For the artisan’s pleasure Ice Dragon will once again host the “Pent”. This sprawling arts and science contest offers a wide selection of categories as well as youth and master work (Laurels Only) categories.  For the brave of heart there is the option of entering multiple categories and winning the coveted title of “Pentathlon Winner”!  Spectators are welcome to wander the hall and look at the entries.

Merchants: Save your pennies because Ice Dragon is also host to a wide selection of merchants selling everything from jewelry to clothing. Last year we had over 30 merchants packed into the first floor! If you are interested please reserve your spots as soon as possible. Prime space will go quickly.

Food and entertainment: All this action might leave a person a bit parched and hungry but fear not! The faithful tavern staff has planned a wonderful selection of food for the day and the tavern will once again host local entertainers for your viewing and listening pleasure. People interested in entertaining should contact the entertainment coordinator to book stage time.
