Festival of Fights

  • 14 Dec 2019
  • 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Registration is closed

Our annual holiday swords celebration! Fight your friends and fellow students for the best present. It's like Yankee Swap, but with swords.

To join in, you must bring a wrapped present (recommended value $15-20). Each participant has a chance to either claim a new present to unwrap, or challenge another to a duel to attempt to win their present. This continues until everyone has a gift.

Your duels can take the form of any freeplay permitted at Ottawa Swordplay (slow, full intent, trial by combat, etc). Duration of fights may be limited to ensure everyone gets a chance to duel.

Participants from other schools are welcome, but must follow all Ottawa Swordplay safety expectations.
