This year especially 4th of August 2012 in Poland we will have 550th anniversary of battle of Swiecino.
more informations about that battle -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Świecino but here is mistake in numbers of men, there were 2 times more than it was writen on wikipedia.
This is event for 2nd half of 15 cent. and takes part in Swiecino village near the Baltic Sea.
The main idea of that occurence is being in the fortified military camp of soldiers.
Whole event last for 4 days when we are living together, building a palisade or digging a moat,
(Thursday - Sunday) but only Saturday is day for tourist.
They have all day to come into the camp to see our items, taking numerous photos in it and asking a lot of difficult questions.
Main battle also is in Saturday and in the evening we have big feast. The battle is very light fight because we are doing this for fun not for glory and honor
That event has very high level of reenactment. The organizer gives us products (meat, vegetables and bread) which we have to prepare if we want to eat :P
Below I uploaded a link where You can find more informations about it and more photos from past events.
See You in camp You will not regret.

Stand your ground and fight,
Stand and do your best,
You must be hard as nails,
And kill with sword and hand,
So if you would be the hero
This is your chance.
