We'd love to hear from you. This a big event, so the closer it gets to showtime, the longer it takes us to respond. If you're ready, let's go!

What About Arnold?

Since 2004, we have been a part of the Arnold Sports Festival, the largest multi-sport festival in the world. In 2022, USA Fencing is hosting a national tournament on Arnold weekend. NCAA is also hosting one. That makes it hard to get fencers, referees, etc.

In order to provide the best experience, we decided to move one week later. That means Arnold will not be at our event. The Ascalon Sword Festival is a festival of swordsmanships. There are no other sports and events that are not sword related.

That means hotels and parking will be much easier.

Media Inquiries

We love the media. We have great things to offer with athletes competing in categorys from under 8 to 70+ year old veterans. We also have historical fencers, a Saturday Showcase, armored combat, and a chance for people to try fencing!

We invite all media to come check us out, interview our athletes and staff.

This tournament is run by Julia Richey, a 13-year member of the Russian National Team and chair of the Arnold Fencing Classic since 2004. She is always available to assist media.

We have limited space available for vendors. If you are interested please complete the form below with your proposal. We need to know how much space you require, electrical needs, security information, what you intend to display/sell, and, of course, all the money issues.

We do want to know your security plan. This is a big event and our staff cannot be responsible for your booth or merchandise. We need to know your staffing plans and security procedures when you are not present.
