Sonora Celtic Faire

Celtic Heritage Celebration

NOTHING LIKE IT ANYWHERE!
THE 33rd SONORA CELTIC FAIRE HOSTS THE INTERNATIONAL ULTIMATE JOUSTING CHAMPIONSHIPS, “KNIGHTS OF MAYHEM”

On March 8-10th, 2019, the Gold Rush community of Sonora, will showcase the sights and sounds of medieval combat.
This will be no medieval dinner show however, or acting troupe trying to play make-believe, this will be hard-core, full contact jousting, at its most extreme!


For the first time ever- “Knights’ of Mayhem”, from the National Geographic Tv show, have challenged some of the stars from the History Channels, “Full Metal Joust”, to a full-scale, no holds bar, extreme jousting match, that has never been seen in modern history!

In 2011, the Sonora Celtic Faire was the set location for the second episode of the National-Geographic show “Knights of Mayhem”. At the time the reigning champion of hard-core jousting was Sir-Charlie Andrews.

Years later, Sir Charlie is still up to defend his title at Sonora again. In fact Charlie has made a recent statement that he will defend his title against all challengers in the rain or snow if need be!

At the 2019 Sonora event, the public will be able to enjoy the sporting event from an arena that is 70% covered from the effects of mother nature, so rain, shine, or snow, all challenges will be accepted.


Again, the Sonora Celtic Faire is bringing the best of jousting to the entire world, and hopefully it will be a major sport in the next Olympic Summer Games….do not miss this....
