Countdown to Coronation 43

    How did we start this State Event?

    Coronation is the last event of the Imperial year. It celebrates the birthday

    Emperor Water and Empress Koriandir Reign 41

    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.

      Coronation was originally in June.

    • Coronation was held in several hotels for many years.
      • During Reign XXIV Coronation was held at the Sheraton. During Reign XXXI, the Sheraton changed to the Crown Plaza hotel. Coronation has been hosted by this hotel for over ten years. The hotel itself has become a tradition.
    • Coronation is a Board Function
      • Coronation is supervised by the Board of Advisors. Just like other State Functions, Coronation is started by a greeting from the President of the Board of Advisors. The Monarchs appoint a Coronation Coordinator to make sure the event runs smoothly. Once the event starts, the Monarchs are on the Dias and have no time to make any other planning decisions.
    • Coronation Weekend
      • The In-Town Show, usually the Thursday before
      • Friday, The Out of Town Show and Bus Tour
      • Saturday, Coronation
      • Sunday, Victory Brunch

    The In-Town Show

    Usually, the Thursday before Coronation, the In-Town Show is chance for the Monarchs to honor all the people who helped them with their year in the Realm. Awards and Certificates are given out to In-Town Regents and Line Members.

    Out Town Show and Bus Tour

    The Out of Town Show had been in the hotel for some years, but the space needed along with the cost became too cumbersome. During Reign XXXIV, the Progressive Out of Town Show was developed where the Out of Town guests performed at the bars on the Tour.

    Coronation starts at 5:00pm. Colorado Springs has prided itself on hosting a buffet dinner where guests start eating an hour before the event starts. After the traditional opening ceremonies, guests are welcome to continue eating from the buffet until the end of second set. The guests are able to see talented Command Performers, witness the majesty of In-Town and Out-of-Town walks of Regents, Businesses and Organizations. The Monarchs give out Lifetime Awards and have one last evening sitting on the Imperial thrones. The newly elected Monarchs are crowned at the end of the event.

    Victory Brunch

    Victory Brunch is the Sunday afterwards. Colorado Springs has prided itself on hosting an omelet bar and breakfast buffet. We invite our guests to attend the buffet first, and the event is designed to be both comfortable as well as elegant. The stepping down Monarchs give out more awards to in-town and out-of-town guests. The newly elected Monarchs are given a chance to welcome their new Reign. They announce their reign theme, colors, and the theme and date of their stepping down Coronation. In recent years, the Emperor and Empress of the new year also dub their new Prince and Princess Royal.
