Tournament of the Inland Empire

When: Sat., June 4, 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sun., June 5, 8 a.m.-8 p.m. 2016

After a successful inaugural effort in 2015, members of the Epona Equestrian Team are once again pulling on their helmets and raising their lances to duel on horseback during the second annual Tournament of the Inland Empire. A local festival celebrating the skill and excitement of medieval sports, spectators can not only witness actual jousting (which takes safety of riders and horses very seriously), but also longsword fighting, equestrian skill-at-arms (riders compete in coordinated and technical feats) and archery. Unlike a typical Renaissance festival, the tourney focuses more on athleticism and skill than emphasizing theatrical performance.
