Amicis  prodesse, nemini nocere 
To do good to my  friends, to injure no one 

Triumphantly rising from the ashes of the wildfires which swept San Diego the week prior to the World Invitational Joust 2007, The Tournament of the Phoenix offers joust fans a weekend of excitement as top riders from the US, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand and Norway compete in tests of skill, courage and honour.



This is an actual competitive sporting event, not a staged show. Competitors wear full harnesses of shining steel plate armour and score points by breaking their 11-foot long lances on the shields of their opponents.

Single day tickets  and weekend  long passes available.

World Invitational Joust

This event is only 20 minutes away from the Escondido Renaissance Faire! It is close enough to hop back and forth, or visit both events on the same day or weekend!


A reminder that this event is coming up fast, and is only 20 minutes from the Escondido Renaissance Festival, [which does not have jousting!]

More than just jousting, this is a real tournament- knights will compete in 7 events over 2 days which will test their horsemanship and prowess with the weapons of a medieval knight- lance, sword, pollaxe and tourney club.
