The following events are Kingdom level events and are the keystones to our annual event calendar.
The Kingdom Events office solicits and supports event bids for these events, ideally 12-18 months in advance.
Kingdom events are are hosted by the Kingdom of An Tir, however, we solicit bids from branches throughout the Kingdom to plan and produce these events.
Why? Branches have the resources and local venue connections needed to run a Kingdom event, and in turn can share the event profits with the Kingdom. Also, moving these events around the Kingdom helps balance the amount of driving required to attend these events, and enables each branch to show the rest of the Kingdom the hospitality and beauty of their location.
