      Come on down, stop on by, hop a carpet and fly to another Arabian night in the Barony of Altavia!

      Scorned by an unfaithful wife, Shahryar is the king of a great empire, but is brokenhearted. Shahryar chose to marry a new woman every day only to kill her the next morning. More and more innocent women die until one day Scheherazade, the daughter of the king's top advisor, offers to marry the king. The king and advisor both protested, but Scheherazade insists, all while knowing that the night could be her last. That night, she requests the presence of her sister and tells a story that manages to be the beginning of dozens of stories meant to keep her alive. Scheherazade weaves a deep narrative, linking together stories into a rich tapestry of old legends and new tales. Which leads to Shahryar falling in love with Scheherazade and removing the threat of daily death from her life.

      Location: Veteran's Park, 13000 Sayre St, Sylmar, CA 91342. There is no staking into the turf deeper than 6 inches and no driving on turf. No amplified music and no alcohol. Pets must be leashed at all times and picked up after. The Park asks we haul out all of our own trash. Trash bags will be provided.

      Activities of the day will include baronial champion tournaments for armored, rapier, unarmored, and youth combat. A baronial Arts and Sciences champion will be chosen. We’ll also have contests, games, a raffle, and more fun activities!  We will have Camel Races open to all! There will a donation lunch to benefit the West Coast Culinary Symposium. The menu will be posted at a later date. The Brewer's Guild will also be hosting Sno-Cones for a donated price. Along with a raffle, we will be having a garb "Bazaar" to benefit the Kingdom fund.
