Harper's Retreat 2023

Weather Information:  We are watching the storm carefully. Although the weather forecast at the site looks to be less rainy than other areas of New England, we are still watching for high winds. 

Please note that the site has asked that we not drive on the grass as the recent rain has made the ground very soft. Farm carts will be available to help move gear from vehicles to camping areas. Feel free to bring your own cart.

Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to try to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events. By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks. You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.

Welcome to Harper's!

September 15-17, 2023



The wars of summer are over and our brave warriors have returned home with tales of glory and songs of triumph and heartbreak.  We will raise a mug to those we have lost and regale each other with their deeds.  In this quiet time before the crops are harvested, wood is stacked and animals slaughtered in preparation of the long winter to come, the Barony of Stonemarche invites one and all to join us around the fire and share the stories and songs of the summer.

After much trial and tribulation, we are happy to announce Harper's Retreat for 2023.  Our usual activities are being planned such as fighting, fencing, archery, thrown weapons, bardic, A&S, classes and a feast on Saturday night.  We look forward to hosting PAL again this year.  In addition, there will be more children's activities and we'll be having more performances and incorporating it into our other activities.  Join us over the weekend to relax and enjoy the splendor of the new site and the company of good friends during the day and around the campfire at night.

We will be at a new camp this year.  Camp Glen Brook, located in Marlborough, NH, offers some cabins, but also some rooms in the main house and wing.  These will be offered on a first come first serve basis.  This year we are again offering full cabin/room rental.  It will be up to the individual renting the cabin/room to decide who to allow to stay with them.  We highly recommend keeping to family pods.  There is also lots of space for those who wish to set up tents.   

Join us over the weekend to relax and enjoy the splendor of the new site and the company of good friends during the day and around the campfire at night.

Merchants will be outdoors again this year and will be welcome at no additional charge.

There will be many updates to this site as we prepare for the event.  Please bear with us and keep coming back for updates as things will be changing quickly!
