Events of the Day
Costume Parade - Our traditional costume competition will begin with a Carnevale-inspired parade through the hall early in the day. Participants will have the opportunity to show off their beauty while enjoying the other events of the day. Voting will be anonymous, and results will be announced during court.
Indulgence - This dessert competition will feature sinful decadence of all sorts. Participants’ confections will be judged on relation to the theme (Carnevale) and, above all, the taste. ***Desserts to share are encouraged whether entered into the contest or not***
Throughout the day we will also have dancing and classes to keep us entertained. Everything will culminate into a fantastic feast and the Court of Their Excellencies, Ana and Jose.
The fee for this event is $15 with a $5 member discount for all those over the age of majority (18).
Those under the age of 13 are invited to join their adult at no charge. In addition, it is $10 to partake in the feast.
(All fees are based per individual)

Rapier Championship Challenge - The Dragon’s Mist Rapier Champion challenges those finding themselves worthy to come forward and compete to take his place. (Format TBD)
Arts & Sciences Championship - Single entry, documentation required. Will be judged on period methods, materials, and understanding of period context. The entry should contribute to a better understanding of an aspect of period life or material culture. Research papers, performances, and consumables are welcome as well as the usual artistic object. Details on judging forms, etc. are coming soon. The winner will receive a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind heirloom box (handmade by Drusa Saturnina). The current Dragon’s Mist Arts & Sciences Champion will be offering a piece gold-plated jewelry, made by her own hand, as a prize, too. The winner will choose an item of largesse as an additional prize. A largesse item will also be granted to an entrant chosen by the Baron and Baroness.
Required for entry:
- Notify Tullia Saturnina of your intent, with the title of your entry, by 3/1/18.
- Submit a letter of intent to Their Excellencies in court on the day of the Championship.
- A largesse donation of a period object (or useful period materials), preferably made by the entrant. This largesse item can be your A&S Competition entry, however, that’s not expected. Your largesse donation will be presented and considered with your judged entry.
- Entrants must be willing to assume the responsibilities associated with being the Champion of the Barony of Dragons Mist. You gain the honor of wearing the Champion’s cloak, and carry the Champion’s regalia. Additionally, you earn a place of pride whenever the Baronial Court is in session. You will organize next year’s competition, with the aid of the event steward and A&S Minister.
