The Hosting Crowns for the Kingdoms of the East, Middle and Aethelmarc select Pennsic War Mayor for the Pennsic War that they will be hosting. The selection process starts in January TWO YEARS in advance of the Hosting Kingdom’s year.

Each Kingdom hosts Pennsic on a rotation basis with one of the three kingdoms being responsible for the Pennsic War every third year.

For example: for Pennsic 49 (That was to be held in 2020, but was postponed till 2022 due to COVID 19), the Middle Kingdom Seneschal call for bids at beginning January 2018. The bid process ends on May 1, 2018, and Royalty selected the Mayor by July 1, 2018.

The goal is to select from a qualified candidate pool, the best person for the position of Pennsic Mayor, regardless of the person’s Kingdom of residence.

We are currently seeking Bids for Pennsic 52, August 2025.

Please see the entire documet for the BID PROCESS (PDF) for the complete information.

Any bid that does not have the requisite material will be returned as incomplete and will not be considered in the review process. If there is time remaining, you may be allowed to resubmit before the deadline [i.e. – you submit your incomplete bid in February, there might be time to resubmit before the deadline of May 1. However if you submit May 1, and it is incomplete, there would be no time to resubmit].

On behalf of the Kingdom Seneschals’ Group, I thank you for your interest in becoming the Mayor of Pennsic War.
