Host an Event
Our Kingdom hosts events year round. If you’re interested in hosting an event, please familiarize yourself with the process then submit your information. If you have any questions that are not addressed here, please contact your local Seneschal and the Kingdom Events Deputy for further assistance.
Kingdom of Avacal Event Policy
The current event policy includes everything pertaining to how our Kingdom runs events, what is considered an event, submission dead-lines, financial considerations, etc. Though a bit of a long read, it is good to know for new Event Stewards as well as a good refresher for experienced ones.
Kingdom Event & Kingdom Sanctioned Event Bids
Annual Kingdom Events are Winter Crown, Summer Coronation, Fall Crown, Winter Coronation, Avacal Grand TUA, and Crown Councils.
Kingdom Sanctioned Events are the primary events held by Branches. Please see the Kingdom Calendar for the up to date list.
Ideally, Bids for Kingdom Events are submitted 12 months in advance.
Event information and the Avacal Event Form for Kingdom Events and Kingdom Sanctioned Events must be submitted via the Event Submission Form 3 months prior to the event at the very latest as they require at least 2 months of publication in the Avantgarde.
Start your bid
These will be brought up at your next local council meeting and financial committee.
Submit your bid
Once approved by your Seneschal and the financial committee, send the forms to the King and Queen at email@example.com and the Kingdom Seneschal at firstname.lastname@example.org, CCing your local Seneschal as well as your Baron & Baroness if applicable.
Submit your event information
Should your bid be accepted, proceed by filling out the Event Submission Form below.
Can anyone submit a bid?
Yes, anyone can submit a bid as long as they have an active membership. Memberships can be purchased from our parent organization at sca.org.
What kind of sites are good for events?
Events are hosted at a multitude of venues including, but not limited to, Town Halls, Rodeo Grounds, Hotels, Gymnasiums, Churches and so on.
How do I bring up my bid in council?
Councils are usually scheduled once a month, either in-person or online. Check the website or social media page for your local Branch to find out dates, times and locations.
How do I get the date of an event changed?
How do I host an online event?
Online events were implemented due to the pandemic and are no longer required. However, should the need arise the bidding process is the same as above. Please contact the Webminister for access to the Kingdom Zoom account.
How do I change the information of my event?
Should there be a change due to unforeseen circumstances (e.g. venue change due to flooding) please contact the Calendar Officer with the updated information.
Why can’t I create my own Event Page on Facebook?
Facebook privacy settings, its blocking feature and other technicalities can create accessibility issues for Events created on a Private Individual’s page. Also, having all events in one place further increases ease of promotion, visibility and access.
What happens if I miss the event submission deadline?
If your event is not published in the Avantgarde for the minimum required amount of time (2 issues) it will not be considered a Kingdom Sanctioned Event and therefore Formal actions and announcements with long-term impact on the Kingdom cannot occur (E.g. presentation of awards, proclamation of law, etc.).
