Shire History

The Shire of Rivenvale was officially granted its status as a full shire at Pennsic in 2002.

(More history coming soon.)


In 2001 we hosted Saxon Summer for the first time at Chestnut Ridge Campground in Hubbard, OH. Next in 2005 we added our Winter Wassail to the schedule, a fun evening of food and friends held at the lovely Pioneer Pavilion set in Mill Creek Park. 2006 saw the beginnings of Spring Training, our event geared at preparing for the summer fighting, archery, and throwing season. And finally in November 2013 we added the Fall Bransle to our line-up of seasonal events, a day of dancing and leisure activities held at Christ Episcopal Church in Warren, OH.
