At the end of summer, on Windrise 24, the Garrison holds the Autumn Hunting Festival, more commonly known simply as the Autumn Hunt.. Feasting, drinking, dancing and crafts fill this five day celebration. However, the real event that draws attention is the Great Hunt. Hunters from the region will come here to Garrison to participate in the largest competitive hunt in southern Ithria. The hunt lasts as long as the festival and culminates in the unveiling of the game on the last day. Hunters compete in both individual and team categories and the hunting covers a number of different animals. A complex scoring system and a panel of judges determine the final winners in a large gathering at dusk on the last day. Generally speaking, the largest and most fearsome predator brought back during the week will win.
