Come one, come all to the Belated Beltane Bash at Retreat Farm.
This donation-based family-friendly event is for medieval enthusiasts, Armored Combat enthusiasts, and really anyone who enjoys good food and a good bar while watching modern day knights compete in skills of arms.
Armored Combat is pretty much what it sounds like: a full contact medieval sport with real armor and real blunted weapons. Vermont Armored Combat Team Captain, William Alloway, is bringing some of the best fighters from around New England to test themselves against one another with swords, axes and more!
