The site is bone dry during public hours

After 5 pm the site will be discretely damp. Bring your own beverage (and some to share. It is rumored that Battlefield Brewery will have a presence).

The fort conducts two guided tours, one at 11 am and one at 1 pm. At these times we will "put on a show" (For instance a grand melee). The Baron and Baroness of North Woods will also have a very short court at theses times. There will be some all day demo stations set up (woodworking, black smithing, cooking, fiber arts, armor try-on, etc.). Assistance with these stations would be greatly appreciated. The cooking demo will become the evening's feast after the public leaves.

Only period pavilions or embellished pop-ups will be allowed inside of the fort during public hours. Camping overnight is allowed and encouraged. Mundane tents can be set-up inside of the fort after 4 pm but must be removed before the public arrives on Sunday. LOTS of crash space is available inside of the barracks building.

Crash Space: Bring a mattress / cot / bed roll and you can sleep on the floor on the first floor of the barracks or you can use one of the bunk beds upstairs that won't fit an averaged sized male but should be just fine for the average sized female. Did I mention the barracks is heated and air conditioned?

Bring your raised fire pits - firewood provided for free.

There are modern flush toilets inside the barracks.

Cars will be allowed inside of the fort for unloading and loading only during non-public hours.

For lunch there will be a commercial hot dog stand available on site during public hours.

Merchants must sign an agreement with the Historic Fort Wayne Coalition to be allowed to sell their wares to the public. There a fee $40 payable to the Historic Fort Wayne Coalition. Merchants must sign a vendor agreement with Historic Fort Wayne. Merchants cannot sell food to the public.

The Nationally registered Historic Fort Wayne is located on the south side of the City of Detroit. The Fort is located in a secure, fenced area, patrolled regularly by the Detroit Police Department and Homeland Security. The only entrance to the Fort is through a manned security gate. SCA members will not have to pay for entrance to the fort.


SCA gets into fort for free!

Yes, you still have to pay at troll.

Archery Info:

The archery at Tyger Hunt is a Regional Archer Champions Practice. This will be for anyone interested in practice for the Pennsic Champions team. We will, of course, be doing fun novelty shoots for the general populace (those who just want to go have fun). The theme of the novelty shoots will match the name of the event "Tyger Hunt"
