Black Oak Lodge

Black Oak Lodge & Festival of the Rose
The weekend of Feb 2-4, 2018


It’s already time to mark your calendars for February 2 – 4, 2018 for Black Oak Lodge and Festival of the Rose! The Shires of Darach and the Isles present for your enjoyment “Masquerade:  AKA Poisoning Pisanos in the Park, Round Two” This year will be even more exciting, as Saturday will feature the Festival of the Rose in honor of Queen Sigriðr.

Come, dust off those Italian clothes and join us once again in the central mountains of Caid at Camp Josepho Boy Scout Camp, 3000 Rustic Canyon Road, Pacific Palisades, CA. Revisit a weekend of 15th century Italian Delights and Dainties, a masked ball, classes, performances, shenanigans, and more intrigue!

There will be a Piazza del Arte for Display of Arts as well as the option/opportunity to get advance feedback on your entries for the Crescent Artisan, the new Kingdom Level A&S competition being held in March.

The very talented Master Giuseppe Francesco da Borgia will be in charge of the feast and kitchen, so the food will be a delight for the senses. We are still looking for cooks for two meals, so please contact Countess Albra or Master Guiseppe if you are interested.

There will be archery practice and competition, classes, and fighting scenarios. Do you have a class you’d like to teach or a scenario you’d like to sponsor?

Please contact the Event Steward, Comptesse Albra Would you like to perform or display your arts for Her Majesty? Please contact the Festival of the Rose Event Steward, His Lordship Paul fitz Denis at
