A rare chance to see knights in shining armor and world-class competitive jousting, along with a memorable opportunity to see history come alive when the Tournament of the Phoenix and Festival of History comes to the Poway Rodeo Grounds (14336 Tierra Bonita Rd., Poway CA).
This event is a fast-action, hard-hitting athletic competition, and the armored knights strive for victory in a game where a single point can make the difference between glory and defeat. In between the daily matches, attendees will enjoy an array of entertainment, from folk music in the entertainment courtyard to displays of historical arts, crafts and daily living in the Festival of History. Children can enjoy storytelling sessions and young knights and princesses can take part in a delightful costume contest.
