From 2009 ❖ Gath of Baal Jousting Tournament Memorial Day weekend. The Festival holds Jousts every weekend. But Memorial Day weekend, the Festival hosts the Gath Of Baal International Jousting Tournament. There are three days of various jousting styles. An overall winner with the highest accumulative score will be declared at the final joust of the festival on Memorial Day. This type of tournament gives everyone the same advantages and disadvantages, as well as allowing the audience to experience the differences in techniques required to achieve points.
