Eye of the Dragon
April 20- 22, 2018
Canton of Saint Georges
We will hold a Roman event in the honor of St. George, Roman soldier of Greek origin and officer in the Guard of Roman emperor Diocletian. The Saint George and the Dragon legend describes the saint taming and slaying a dragon that demanded human sacrifices. St. George is the Patron of archers, armorers, cavalry, chivalry, equestrians, halberdiers, horsemen, knights, riders, soldiers. This event is a throwback to the fighting/camping events of the past. Come on out and spend the weekend among friends.
