Beltane is a held in the spring to celebrate renewal. Held usually on the spring equinox.
Previous Beltane Events
Protectorate is Namron’s heavy tournament event. It was touted as the “The King Maker” event. Held in the fall.
Protectorate is held the first weekend of October – Fighting and feasting! Namron’s Chivalric Champion, our Protectorate and the brewing champion are chosen here.
Protectorate is the flagship event that Namron hosts once a year. It has been hosting this event for over forty years, longer than the kingdom of Ansteorra has been around. Protectorate has always been a fighting event and as such it was once coined “The King Maker” as the champion of the heavy chivalric tournament, Namron’s protectorate, usually went on to the the next crowned prince of the kingdom.
Here you will find chivalric fighting tournaments as well as pick up fights. Light or rapier fighter tournament as well. The arts and science championship is held at Protectorate as well as the brewing champion is crowned.
Protectorate will usually have a tavern and a feast.
Protectorate is usually not themed like Namron’s Beltane, however since the 41st Protectorate dubbed A Pirate’s Ransom there has been a lose theme to the event.
In 2017 at A Pirate’s Ransom kingdom history was made. Three Peers were elevated, all different peerages, yet all were Namronites. A Pelican, a Laurel, and a Knight were elevated, all the dismay of the poor autocrats running the event.
Protectorate even though it may be heavy on the fighting is an all around event for all to attend. Classes are usually always scheduled for the event. Vendors are welcomed to come hock their wares. Merriment is always abundant!
Gulf War is war with no enemies, held in Mississippi mid-March. It is a war between the kingdoms of Ansteorra (that’s us) and Trimaris (the evil doers). It is hosted by the Kingdoms of Gleann Abhann and Meridies. Baronies from all the neighboring kingdoms come to battle it out. This is where we bring out the siege engines, combat archers, heavy fighters, and most importantly camaraderie.
Unlike other demonstrations that the Barony of Namron participates in, this is by far the largest. As many as 300,000 people attend the Medieval Fair in Norman each year.
A Namron Christmas Carol
During the December populace meeting the barony comes together to enjoy an evening of festive fun activities.
The Namron Embassy
You will find the Namron embassy many places as you travel through out the kingdom as well as other kingdoms. Anywhere there are Namronites there you will find an embassy.
Some time in late July you can find the populace at Andrews Park coming together to enjoy friendship and a burger or hot dog.
These are the necessary days that make the dream a reality. Working together side by side to accomplish the impossible. Or maybe just the make a thing.
At times the barony will attend other events as to share our knowledge and love of the medieval times we so cherish. The Namron Embassy will show up and educate and entertain the mundane populace that is in attendance.
The Barony of Namron has the privilege of hosting three large events each year: The Medieval Fair in Norman Demo, Beltane, and Protectorate. In some years, we are honored to host events for the Kingdom of Ansteorra, or other special events. Many of our populace members also travel to Gulf Wars in Mississippi, or to Pennsic in Pennsylvania each year. We invite you to join us for any, or all, of them!
