Come once again to the beautiful, temperate coastlands and the epic war between the mighty Kingdoms of An Tir and the West. There will be battles, both heavy and rapier. There will be Arts and Sciences, rapier and archery, equestrian activities galore–and of course there will be fine merchants.
This year, Grand Court is hosted by the Kingdom of the West!
Site OPENS for Merchants on June 29th at NOON. Site opens on June 30th at NOON for the general populace.
Only those who have coordinated with site setup leads and the volunteer coordinator will be let on site early.
First, War has officially been extended through July 5th! Calendars are still being updated but as of today, War will run June 30th through July 5th, 2022 for the general populace! To cover the additional cost of another day of showers and biffies, site fee needed to be slightly increased to $60 at pre-reg and $65 at gate($55 and $60 respectively with the SCA member discount).
Second, Pre-registration is now OPEN! This year all registration types are filtered through the same pre-registration form, including standard attendees, merchants, RVs/Trailers, or Equestrians. The other significant change this year is land allotment for registered group camping will be tied to pre-registration numbers. Please see the War website and the pre-registration form for details. Encourage your group member to register early to maximize your groups allotment!
Join Their Highnesses of the Mists and Cynagua for a weekend of fighting and revelry on the shores of Lake Berryessa! The site features a limited number of cabin spaces ($10 each by pre-registration only), a covered picnic area, potable water, fire pits (West Kingdom and local fire regulations prevail), and lake access.

Once Their heirs are chosen, Their Highnesses would wish to celebrate with a party hosted by the Prince Consort. Refreshments will be available. In keeping with the theme of Their reign, the theme of the party will be Traders, Raiders, and (dun dun dun) Pirates!
