What events are running at OpusFest?

- Castlewall Productions will be back at OpusFest with their amazing swordfighting performances.  Castlewall has performed at various festivals and renaissance faires.  They are an amazing group and if you missed them at the last OpusFest, this is a great chance to see what many people are talking about.

- We will be holding a new Costume Contest at OpusFest.  Free tickets and/or prizes will be awarded to the top costumes in various categories.  This is your chance to show off your skill and talent, or just have fun.  Don't want to get on stage?  We will be giving out various prizes to people who are wandering the convention in costume as well.  

- There is plenty more to know about.  We will be adding additional details to our website and strongly encourage people to keep checking it for the latest updates.  The web site is: http://www.opusfest.com
