The SCA encompasses the historical years between 600 through 1600. Because of this vast span of years, there is a wide variety of clothing, armor, countries and people represented. Active participants may choose what region and what culture they enjoy within that historical time. Feel free to ask questions. Questions are encouraged.

Merchants & Shopping

What is a town without its merchants? Take time to peruse the merchandise available for purchase. There are no food sales permitted.

Fighting Tournaments

The individuals who participate at this event are not actors and the fighting is not staged. Each fighter must train and authorize to be granted permission to fight at an SCA event. This is a planned process.

Honor and chivalry drives the fighters to represent the best of the Middle Ages through combat.

Note: Spectators are not allowed to participate. This is why they are called spectators. Thank you for adhering to the safety rules of the event.
