In the past, most often held at Riverglen Campground in Orting, WA.

AW 2006 was held at Dragons Sphere Recreation Park, September 15th-18th, 2006. In 2007 Autumn War was held as a ten day event in conjunction with September Crown at the 2006 site near Randal WA. This site was used through 2010.
Since 2011, the event has been held at Nix Farm in Chehalis, WA
History 
The first Autumn War is told to have been created by Baron Kendall and First Sergant Thorgoodson, the year after the last Alpine Pass War. Alpine Pass War was an war between BaO vs Wastekeep/Vulcanvelt, starting around 1987, sometimes held at Camp Fife (a Boy Scout camp just off of Chinook Pass). The first few Autumn Wars were between BaO and Lion's Gate, and it seems to have been created in a desire to combine the attendance from Alpine Pass War, and another small war (possibly between Lion's Gate and Fire Mountain Keep). Unfortunately, I don't have a fixed date for the year they started.
