About the SCA

The Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA), was founded in 1966, and has grown into a “Known World” of 19 kingdoms, multiple principalities, with over 30,000 members throughout the world.

It is an international organization, dedicated to applied research and historical studies with a focus on pre-17th century era’s and cultures.

This includes hands-on experience re-creating a wide variety of martial activities, arts, sciences, and other skills from across the vast array of cultures throughout the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

The SCA is a not-for-profit organization.  All events and activities would not be possible without everyone who volunteers to bring it all together for each other.

Members will dress in clothing from their chosen era and culture and attend events which can feature different types of tournaments, royal courts, feasts, music, dancing, classes, workshops, and more!
