Grapes of Wrath 2024~ Armored Combat Tournament & Festival

May 18 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm


Grapes of Wrath is a 2-day Buhurt (full contact armored combat) fighting event featuring a handful of armored combat teams from across the Eastern United States. This is a 5v5 tournament (five heavily armed and armored fighters on each side of our solid wooden fighting area, doing battle until only one team is left standing!). With elite men and femme athletes battling it out for glory, you don’t want to miss this incredible event!
Joining us this year is La Compagnie du Griffon Doré, who will be bringing a host of Medieval vendors and demonstrations of life and customs of the medieval era. Curious about how the average person lived? What trades were common? How to conduct yourself in the presence of the nobility? Bring your best!
Stay tuned for schedule, teams involved, vendors and ticket information.
Tickets for spectators are $10/day or $15/weekend and are on sale 31 March!
Tickets will also be sold at the gate day-of. Kids 12 and under are free. Bring lawn chairs/picnic blankets and arrive early for the best seats.
Beer, wine, cider and mead will be available for purchase (no outside alcohol is allowed) both at the winery and at the tournament site.
