For this session, we promised classes that are icky, sticky, smelly, noisy, and messy. And boy, will we deliver!

This event combines 3 events: Stormsport’s Annual Army Muster, Their Majesties’ Equestrian Championship Tournament, and the Æthelmearc Æcademy and War College. It is sure to offer something for everyone!

In addition to the heavy fighting, archery, fencing, thrown weapons, youth combat, and equestrian activities, there will be classes a-plenty!

Not even Pennsic can boast such a wide variety as we will provide: hands-on classes, history classes, music and dance classes, martial and equestrian classes …. Who could ask for more?

Check out the class descriptions here.

Then mark your calendar for Saturday, July 4th, and we’ll see you at the Albion Borough Park /Fairgrounds in Albion, PA! For additional event details, please visit the event’s website.
