This contest is based on the best showcased r projects. Clear explanation of your project, with diagrams, clear descriptions and display of your items all to tell the story of your journey of recreating the Middle Ages.

Ursulwyck Village has many wonderful things to do and see! Our demonstrators and living history participants are creating some interesting displays for all to enjoy. There is so much each of us invest to create to relive the past. Showing our appreciation by letting our Ursulwyck Coordinator, Pani Katarzyna Miloshova on who you like best.

Our Marketplace will be busting at the seams this year and with this comes two very popular contests; best merchant display and best demonstration of creation of wares. Please let our Merchant Coordinator, Lady Sarra Treemaker at the event for who you think should be awarded the prize for their efforts.

Volunteers - Nothing happens without you!

Ursulmas is a gargantuan event on par with many of An Tir's Crown-level events. Our guest totals average about 1400-1600 people through the door in a single weekend. We always need a few folks willing to add a few hours of assistance in Gate, waterbearing, field heraldry, lists, parking, setup & teardown.

If you believe you can offer some of your 3 pm to help out, contact us atvolunteers@Ursulmas.org. We thank you in advance for your help!
