The SCA formed among a group of friends enthused about medieval life, who decided to create a world that would bring to life the culture and pageantry of the medieval period in the context of modern life. Now 50 years on, the SCA continues to attract young and old to explore life style, culture and combat of arms from around the world as it was known to the West before 1600AD.
Arts Activities include costume making, life style, music, dance, food and feasting, calligraphy and anything practised before 1600AD.
Martial Activities including armoured combat, rapier combat, cut & thrust Renaissance swordsmanship, equestrian and archery.
Annual SCA membership is $45 and can be purchased online here
