Shrewsbury Faire Contests

During our winter Shrewsbury we will be holding the following contests:

  • Baking
    • Bring all your baked goods to Shrewsbury Faire for sampling! Dishes can be either savory or sweet. Please include a list of ingredients (for allergy reasons.) Period accuracy is not required, but is encouraged. Multiple entries per person allowed. Judging will be populace choice. The chef of the dish must be on site during the event.
  • Brewing
    • Have you worked hard on a mead, cordial, ale or other beverage this year? If you don’t mind sharing, you can bring it to Shrewsbury Faire for tasting. Please include a list of ingredients (for allergy purposes). Multiple entries per person allowed. Judging will be populace choice. The brewer must be on site during the event.
  • “Unlive” Livestock
    • Our most popular contest is back! It’s a little late in the year, but you can still bring that livestock you’ve lovingly cared for all year to Shrewsbury to be judged. Entries can be anything livestock inspired, but must not be living. In the past, we had a poem, stuffed animals, an illuminated scroll, and a herd of (very) minature sheep entered for judging.
  • Bardic
    • This is a performance based contest. Participants will perform a historical piece, an SCA piece, or an original piece in a historical style not to exceed 7 minutes. Poetry, song and drama are all accepted forms. Instumental accompaniment is not only allowed, but encouraged.
    • Groups may enter, but there can only be one recipient of the regalia
    • Our regalia, the Hoo Lyre is the property of the Shire of Sangre del Sol and must be returned at the beginning of the next Shrewsbury Faire or when asked by Sangre’s seneschal. Personal information will be collected if you receive the lyre.
    • Judging will be populace choice.
  • The Twelve Trials
    • We will be offering a twelve part scavenger hunt at Shrewbury. Entrants will have to perform several tasks. If multiple members of the populace make it through the trials, a winner will be determined by random drawing.

Bardic Competition!

We are proud to announce we will be conducting a Bardic Competition on the night of October 24th at Shrewsbury Harvest Faire. Due to the generosity of Honorable Lord Herbert, the Shire has been provided with a replica Hoo Lyre that will serve as a token. The winner will receive the lyre, with the condition that it be brought back to the shire in time for next Shrewsbury in order to be presented to the next champion of our Bardic Contest.

Rules :

  • This is a performance based contest. Participants will perform a historical piece, an SCA piece or an original piece in a historical style not to exceed 7 minutes. Poetry, Song, and drama are all accepted forms. Instrumental accompaniment is not only allowed, but encouraged.
  • Groups may enter, but there can only be one winner since only one lyre and one scroll have been provided.
  • The Hoo Lyre is the property of the Shire of Sangre del Sol and must be returned to the Shire of Sangre del Sol at the beginning of the next Shrewsbury Faire or when asked by Sangre’s Seneschal.
  • Since Shrewsbury is an event that encourages enthusiasm for the arts, and less about exhibition rules; it has been determined that judging will be POPULACE CHOICE.

Overall, have fun and make sure your audience has fun as well.
