Join us on a pilgrimage to Camp Rutledge, Hard Labor Creek State Park, for the 42nd Dreamstone tournament hosted by the Barony of Bryn Madoc, as we wend our paths back homeward to the original Dreamstone site.

There will be travel-focused classes and amusements, with heavy and rapier tournament fighting, arts and science activities (including a poetry competition and a brewing competition), feasting, dancing, and revelry. We joyfully await to welcome you on your Dreamstone sojourn … Can you tell our theme this year is travel?

Travelers Note: Please be advised that Bicycle Ride Across Georgia (BRAG) is hosting their Spring TuneUp road cycling event in Rutledge this weekend, and fellow two-wheeled travelers will be sharing the roads with us on the way to Dreamstone during the day.

The site opens at 6 p.m. on Friday, April 19 and closes at 9 a.m. on Sunday, April 21.


Travelers’ fare will be offered on Friday night. Breakfast will be offered on Saturday and Sunday. Lunch is on your own; bring your own food for lunch. Alternatively there are places to eat in nearby Rutledge and Madison, GA.

In keeping with our travel theme, the feast will be served in recyclable carryout boxes. The first box will be available before Court and the second (meat and vegetarian options) after Court. If there is something you aren’t fond of in your portable feast box, please consider offering it to someone rather than throwing it away.

The final feast menu will be posted on April 15, to account for seasonal variations and pricing. A tentative list of offerings is available. A notebook of dishes will be located just outside the kitchen for those with questions about ingredients. Or you can read the list of ingredients for all meals here.
