As of March 16, 2020, all events scheduled in the Northern California and Northern Nevada regions of the West Kingdom are cancelled, per the Crown of the West. This is in compliance with current Federal restrictions applying to the lower-48 states against gatherings of 50 people or more, in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The Principality of Oertha (Alaska) and the Barony of the Far West (Japan, South Korea, Thailand, and Guam) should follow their local, state, and federal guidelines during this period and act within those rules.
There is no definitive timeline for resuming central Kingdom events yet, but anticipate the ban to last at least through mid-May 2020. More information will be forthcoming about how this will affect Western Crown Tourney and Mists Coronet Tourney in the immediate future, as well as other events in the coming months.
This is a rapidly evolving situation and the Western Crown and Kingdom Seneschal are working closely together and monitoring information released from State and Federal officials. They are acting in the best interests of the West Kingdom, and the health, safety, and well-being of the Populace is foremost in their minds. Please continue to support them as they face these difficult decisions going forward.

Civil Unrest is a non-standard event. We have fighters, but we play a different kind of game as a break from tourney style events and wars. We embrace A&S artisans, but we take the competition to a different level… And we firmly believe the kids should have an active part to play, too. Vakkerfjell embraces the spirit of the SCA with the “something for everyone” ideal and we are offering a wide variety of activities for everyone attending.
This year, we are providing oranges, pickles, and drinks. Please bring lunches and/or snacks for you and yours.
The site has lovely shaded areas, but some areas are decidedly sunny. Sunshades and popups are encouraged, along with sunscreen and mosquito spray!
