Every day is for every thing but each day has a focus:
Tuesday, Welcome to War
We’ll start our day sipping coffee with the Chatelains as we prepare for our day, filled with learning the basics of your stay with us at War of the Wings. Stroll with us around the site, even at night time as we observe SCAdians in their natural habitats.
Wednesday, Arts and Sciences
We will focus on the arts and how our Artisans research, study and recreate the Pre-1700’s through their thoughts and craftsmanship. Laurels and Apprentices will be available to answer any questions you might have that will set you on your own path to artistry.
Thursday, Martial Arts
We will focus on what our Martial community has to offer in their various fighting forms. Ask questions of those who battle, tourney, fling weapons and are authorized to fight in their way through war. The afternoon will grant an opportunity to speak to Knights, Marshals and other combatants as you gain a better understanding of life on and off the field.
Friday, In service to crown and Kingdom
Learn what it means to bring the different pieces together as we have Service oriented members of the populace available to find out what you can do to help out too. During the procession, sit with us to observe the pomp and pageantry – never missing a step as we explain what everything means in real-time. Play by play explanations of what happens during a Great Court will help make the ceremonies less confusing for you as well.
Saturday, This is war!
Join us at the Newcomer’s Pavillion ready for a day like no other! Commentary on what you are seeing during the battles to be held will be a must, and we will be here to answer all your questions.
