If you are thinking “This all sounds cool, How do I get involved and check things out?”
Here are some helpful links and tips for you on your next steps.

“I want to attend an event, when is the next one?”

You can go to our Baronial Events page to find links and information about our next upcoming event.

“What do I wear?”

We only require a reasonable attempt at pre-1600 attire. What does that entail? Here is a helpful link that can help answer that question: Costuming

But what it means is that we attempt to wear recreations of what people around the world wore prior to 1600 AD. Look at historical sketches and paintings for inspiration and find what city and period speaks to you!  We have people who wear clothing from France, Poland, Egypt, India, Italy, Korea, Japan, Ireland, Persia, Rome…and the list goes on!

“Do I have to have all of this BEFORE I can attend an event!?!”

Not at all. We also have “Gold Key” mundanely known as “loaner garb”.
Oldenfeld maintains an assortment of clothes to loan to visitors so they can attend events. The clothes are laundered after each use. If you would like to borrow any of the clothes, it is helpful – but not necessary – that you contact our Chatelaine before the event so they can be sure the clothes you need are available. Take a look at what we currently have for loan here: 2023 Oldenfeld Loaner Garb

“What should I bring with me?”
Some good things to bring to an event are a camp chair, a blanket, and a basket of feast gear. (plates, bowls, mugs, and eating utensils.) If you need loaner feast gear, you can contact our Chatelaine before the event so she can make sure to have some available for you.

“Are my children welcome?”
Families and children are always welcome! Children add wonderful energy to events and there is usually some sort of organized children’s activities for them to partake in.

“Is there a cost?”
Small fees are taken at events to cover site fees and meals. The event’s page will have more information regarding these fees and who to contact.

“Is there another way to check things out besides an event?”
Absolutely! You can join us at our bi-monthly Baronial meetings, held at 7:00pm on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.  We discuss upcoming events, barony news, and other assorted topics.  It is a great way to meet our members. Currently we meet virtually on Discord.
