Virtual Falling Leaves in Exile (2020)

Welcome to Falling Leaves in Exile!

This year we are unable to gather in person, but we aren’t letting that stop us from gathering at the end of the summer and celebrating with a day of entertainments and activities. Please join us and find links in the schedule to the right.

Opening Welcome from Their Excellencies – Join Baroness Raziya and Baron Thomas as we begin our day with a few opening remarks.


Hello to the Barony and our friends from further afar!

We have lovely weather today, and hope those of you in garb will be enjoying a chance to wear warmer clothes.

Today there is a full schedule full of Arts, Sciences, Bardic & Gaming. We are looking forward to seeing all that you have put together for the event today. We would also like to give a shout out to the ranges which are open today (by appointment), and we hear will be well attended. Thankfully the throwers and shooters have excellent weather for this!

Speaking of archery. We will be having our Baronial Championship over the next month and a half. Contact Peter the Red if you would like to participate. He is looking to conclude it by October 31st. So hopefully we will get a good turnout for the competition.

Thank you all who have put on this event, made us content, or are watching from home. It is much appreciated and we hope you enjoy today.
