We may not like to talk about it, but behind all of the fighting, food, fun, performances, prizes, camping, and overall merriment that takes place every year at Battle for the Ring, there are staggering costs to running the event including payment for the site, permits, insurance, and much, much more. To help the event coordinators cover some of these costs ahead of time, without too much spent out of pocket, we bring you this Kickstarter every year to help raise money for the event, with the help of artisans and crafters from across the country who love Battle for the Ring just as much as we do. Every Kickstarter reward includes at least one paid admission to the event at the pre-registration price of $40. Why is pre-registration admission $40 this year? We deeply regret to report that due to a county-wide increase in site fees, Battle for the Ring will need to increase its at-the-door fee in 2016. We will, however, still offer last year’s fee as this year's pre-registration price. If you pre-register, you won't have to pay the fee increase. Please encourage people to pre-register at $40 for the 4 days. The at-the-door fee will be $50. Thank you for your understanding. We would to thank all who participate in the Kickstarter ahead of time. As a token of our appreciation, you will receive a special Kickstarter backer token, as well as a place on our Kickstarter Backers banner for the 2016 event. All Kickstarter rewards will be delivered at the event. Without you, Battle for the Ring would not be the event that it has become. Thank you for your support, year after year. And thank you to EVERY attendee of Battle for the Ring.

Risks and challenges

We have a long track record of running this event and see no reason why 2016 won't be even bigger and better than the last!
