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 2022 Battlemoor XI is canceled, however, they are looking for a new venue for 2023.
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.
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.
