Escondido Ren Faire With The Black Company says
It's that time again! Time for swords, armor, wenches, warriors, dice, knives, axes, rum, rats, rogues, music, dance, friends, foes, and feasting!

Come on out and enjoy two weekends of fun with everyone's favorite band of cut-throat pirates & mercenaries, the Black Company!

Daily Black Company Line-Up:

12:30 - Full Armour Live Steel fighting with Knife fighting interludes - The Black Company Arena

2:00 - Battle Pageant - On the Battlefield

3:30 - Bar Fight - At the Bar

For those of you who have never been to a faire with us, come out and join us! Don your best medieval costume and live the life of a mercenary. There will be lots of drinking, laughing, fighting demonstrations, and locking people in the cage!

Weekend one:
Day 1 - Black and fancy - wear your best stolen nobility clothes
Day 2 - Filthy dirty, outfits with holes bloody wounds / cuts and rents.- Gypsy and traveling attire

Weekend two
Day 1 - Black and Red Picture day
Day 2 - Anything but black day - Those who participate will be killed.

If you gate list with us, you will only need to pay a $5 registration fee for the entirety of the faire. You must check in before 11am when you arrive. Make sure your name is listed under the Gate List post on the Black Company page if you want to be gatelisted.

However, if you gate list with us, you have to earn your keep! We need plenty of help throughout the faire including (but not limited to): setup, interacting with patrons who enter our camp (this happens a lot as we are part of the treasure hunt), interacting with other guilds (this happens not so often, so anyone who makes the effort to do so will earn big points), helping fighters armor up and down and providing them with water as needed, being a steel fighter, general camp upkeep, doing fighting demonstrations of your own (knife or shinai), entertaining the camp, helping with gate duty, and tear-down.

Important dates:

October 28th: Setup at the park, 3pm

Second Saturday: Black Company Feast after gates close. Must be gatelisted to participate. Bring a dish and beverage to add to the general merriment and mayhem that will ensue.

Last Sunday: Tear down, 5pm.
