This free event is a great way to introduce newcomers and friends to the SCA!

This year we will be brawling and bransle-ing, with plenty of time for relaxing, eating, dancing, and playing games.


Period garb and feast gear are required. The focus of this event is on period leisure activities.

Various classes and martial activities will be available throughout the day. Musical instruments, games, and stories are welcomed. And don’t forget your dancing shoes! We will also be conducting a Silent Auction or Garage Sale to raise money for the shire. Bring an item(s) to donate and/or money to spend if you can.

Site opens at Noon and is wheelchair accessible.

Beer/Mead Exchange

Attention all brewers, vintners, and imbibers! We will be conducting our first Rivenvale Brew Exchange. Anyone (21 and over) who wants to participate should bring two six-packs of their favorite brews, whether made yourself or purchased. Ideally, please select one or two types that you enjoy but aren’t everyday drinks, so people can leave with new drinks to try.

All participants will select one or two of each type (depending on the number of participants), and so will leave Fall Bransle with twelve varied brews.
