If you or your company are interested in participating next year, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the info when it's ready for 2017!
The Shield Auction is patterned after the Calgary Stampede's Canvas Auction!
The 2016 auction raised $2,650 towards bringing the jousters to the Brooks Medieval Faire! A sign of the tough economic conditions in the area. Again we had competition as the Brooks Bandits were in the play-offs and had a game that evening.
The first auction was held in 2015 and raised $4,550 towards bringing the jousters to the Brooks Medieval Faire! Of course, we had some competition, the political debate was announced for the same evening
just two weeks before.
Interested in attending?
Email email@example.com with Shield Auction in the subject line and tell us how many people will be attending so we have enough snacks and drinks for everyone.
We will send you an Auction booklet by reply when its ready!
Can't attend, but still want to participate?
We are going to start the Shield Auction on our facebook page as a silent auction. Then on April 14th, the silent auction amount will be the starting bid. Have your cell phone handy so we can call you to either continue bidding or tell you that you are the successful bidder. So every few days a jouster with their shield and biography will be featured. Just private message your name, cell phone number, which jouster and your bid.
You get to visit the jousters that come to Brooks from Calgary and area to help with the Shield Auction in a very relaxed setting and have some fun!
Come have some fun with the Brooks Medieval Faire Society volunteers and some of our jousters!
