Sword Fest features lectures and live swordplay, from East and West
Sword Fest is returning to the South Carolina Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum. The day's events include lectures, exhibits and demonstrations, many of which are kid-friendly.
East is East and West is West, but the twain will meet on Saturday, Feb. 9, accompanied by the clanging of swords. That’s when Sword Fest returns to the South Carolina Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum. The action starts at 10 a.m. with a demonstration of European historical swordplay in the atrium. Allen Johnson of the Palmetto Knights, a fight choreographer and longtime student of European swordplay, will discuss and demonstrate the use of historic weapons. That’s just the beginning. A series of talks, demonstrations and exhibits will continue throughout the afternoon. A Sword Skills Station will let kids learn basic movements.
