155th Jousting Tournament
August 27 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Watch modern day knights and maidens wield their lances as they gallop down a 160-yard track, spearing three small rings at breakneck speeds. Watch jousters aim for precision victories at the 155th Jousting Tournament at Christ Church in Port Republic. This competition is the oldest and often biggest jousting event in Maryland. The historic event includes a church bazaar, a country supper, music and lots of fun and cheer. The State Sport starts in grand style with knights and ladies parading on their armored steeds onto the field of competition. Colorful cloth seals symbolizing hometowns or family names embellish saddles. Knights are called forth to charge into the games as a trumpet blasts above the fanfare. Knights and ladies compete equally, vying for the title in each of four divisions as they aim for the hanging rings. The winners are crowned at the grand coronation ceremony that ends the day. Aug. 27 at noon, Christ Church, Port Republic: marylandjousting.com
