How did we start this State Event?
Coronation is the last event of the Imperial year. It celebrates the birthday
of the Court. The Monarchs have worked hard all year, and they step down with their friends and family from all over the Imperial Court System. Right now, the UCPPE celebrates an entire weekend of events.
Coronation Weekend is also the start of the new year for the next Reign. The newly elected Monarchs are brought into the ballroom and crowned at the end of the event.
Coronation had been scheduled in June during the first years of the Court. Coronation was cost effective during the days before summer began. However, Colorado Springs is known for its resorts and sunshine during the summer. Hotels grew to be more expensive during the summer.
Coronation was moved to November. The event has been enjoyed with both comfortable and inclement weather. But, because of talented people, the event has been a success and affordable for both the organizers and the guests.
Coronation is a chance for the Monarchs to honor their friends that have been inspirational throughout the year. These guests are Command Performers. They perform at different parts of the evening. Since Reign XXXI, the UCPPE allows for only ten command performers to have appropriate time management throughout the event.
Coronation is an event where the community sees the results of Voting Day. There is a new Emperor and Empress, but there are also new Members at Large for the Board of Advisors.
