The Tournament Returns

Do you ever daydream about a time when knights rode majestic horses into dangerous competitions, or a noble archer took aim at the bullseye as well as the heart of his lady fair? This June you’ll have a chance to witness and take part in these medieval games, as well as several others.

The 5th annual Tournament of the Inland Empire returns to the Clayton Fairgrounds for the 3rd year in a row. June 1st and 2nd from 2pm until midnight, there will be a variety of events that will appeal to all ages and a range of interests. Among the featured events there are:

  • Longsword
  • Archery
  • Mounted Skills at Arms
  • Mounted Melee
  • Jousting

Along with events, there will be vendors and a beer garden.

Competitors

Are you experienced in these medieval games and want to demonstrate your grit? Space is limited; send a message to [email protected] to get your competition application.

Tournament organizers ask that anyone applying to participate have experience in these sports and already own the proper equipment. Equestrians that apply must be competent on horseback and be able to ride one-handed, in order to handle the weapons and complete the courses. Entry fees vary by event.

Vendors and Volunteers

Vendors are welcome to offer food and wares to everyone at the Tournament. Fees are $65 for the whole weekend.

If you want to be a part of the Tournament but don’t want to compete, a recent Facebook update states that volunteers are needed to help set up and tear down, assist judges, act as security, and more. Volunteers who wish to work with the equestrian events must have adequate horse experience to help in the arena.

For more information, check out the main Facebook page for the Tournament as well as the event page. If you need more information, or want to participate in the event, contact them through Facebook messenger or email.
