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 battles and celebrations from back in the 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 2nd, 2023, at Sporleder Centennial Ranch in Aguilar.
Battlemoor used to hold its yearly activities at the Stroh Ranch in northern Walsenburg. Eventually, the event moved its location to Cottonwood Meadows Farm in Buena Vista and now is in its 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.
