This is a unique outdoor event organized by the Kingdom of the Outlands, which is part of the 20 Kingdoms of the Society for Creative Anachronism. The event started in 2009 and recreates and celebrates battles and celebrations back in old age.
People pitch their tents, dress up as knights, and recreate the glorious battles that were won and lost many years ago. This year’s 2023 Battlemoor LVIII will be held Tuesday to Sunday, June 27th to July 3rd, 2023, at Sporleder Centennial Ranch in Aguilar.
Battlemoor used to hold their yearly activities at the Stroh Ranch in the north of Walsenburg. They eventually moved their location to Cottonwood Meadows Farm in Buena Vista and now are in their new home in the small southern town of Aguilar, about an hour south of Pueblo.
There will be armored combat tournaments, archery, equestrian activities, an artisan lane, and revelry where you are welcome to join in the festivities and grab some drinks. Note that the event offers primitive camping only, with limited water and zero cell reception so come prepared.
