Celebrate a day of courtly love, romance and chivalry with unusual tourneys for both heavy and rapier, games, competitions, and the more genteel arts like hand kissing and copious amounts of dancing. So hang your heart on your sleeve (literally) and come have fun. Tourneys to include an auction for the heavy fighters. Bidders to have a favor (competition) to give to the fighter they win.
