Whether you’ve found us in a web search, met someone at an SCA event or fighter practice (one of those "really crazy people" who dresses up on the weekends), or are looking for others who have a serious interest in researching, exploring, and recreating things Medieval -- you have found a home!
The SCA is a non-profit organization dedicated to the historical, educational research and recreation of Medieval Western European culture.
As members, we explore the many aspects of European life lived by the nobility between 600 AD and 1600 AD. That means we spend our time studying the arts and sciences (cooking, sewing, brewing, building things), exploring medieval styles of combat and war, honing medieval fighting skills, and lightening the heart with flirtations of courtly love through poetry, dance, and song. As you can see, there is truly something for everyone in what we call the "Current Middle Ages"!
As you start your journey into the SCA, please feel welcome to contact the people listed on this site and ask questions about how you can come join us.
Better yet, come to an event (see the Calendar and the meeting times listed for local groups). When you get there, walk up to someone and say "I’m new can you explain what you are doing here?"
Please consider this your invitation to explore and enjoy history along with us. We would be Honored to have you join us as we travel a path in time built upon courtesy, honor, and chivalry. Welcome!
