LyonBard Competition

At Lyondemere Yule we hold the Annual Lyon Bard competition. The first competition was held in 2002. This position was created to encourage excellence in historical performance arts, and to encourage original compositions done in an historical manner. The primary responsibilities as Lyon Bard include composing new material at the request of Their Excellencies, often In honor of or In praise of the Kingdom, Her Monarchs, The Barony, and other praiseworthy topics. You need not be the most accomplished musician in the world, simply have a love for composing and performing to the glory of the Barony, and an interest in historical bardic forms.

Cast Iron Chef Lyondemere

Cast Iron Chef Lyondemere was created in 2010 by Baroness Eva filia Edeneweyn. It was originally created to be an opportunity for the barony's cooking guild, "Dagda’s Cauldron", to flex their competitive muscles. It has now become a full-fledged event where cooks from all over the Kingdom of Caid come to compete to see whose medieval meal reigns supreme, and which head chef will win the title of "Cast Iron Chef Lyondemere". Other activities also take place to help make the day more exciting and fun for all.
