Northern California has a high density of exceptionally talented practitioners of western martial arts, and Rose and Thorns hopes to create an opportunity for that talent to be displayed and shared publicly. This brand new event offers an entire weekend of historical fencing tournaments and workshops for all experience levels, as well as opportunity for spectation and introductory classes for anyone with a new interest in the art of the sword.

This event will be held in the heart of the Sierra Foothills at the beautiful Gold Country Fairgrounds. The 11,000 sq ft. venue known as the 'Armory Building' features athletic floors, easy access, and free parking.

Fencers from HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts), SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) , independent organizations, and classical fencing schools will all be represented to test their skill at arms, teach lessons in their areas of expertise, and forge new connections. Tournaments will include Open Rapier, Beginner’s Rapier, Smallsword, and 19th c. Dueling Sword. The event is open to all fencers, and to the general public for spectating and introductory lessons .
