Society for Creative Anachronism

The Society for Creative Anachronism is a group of good-spirited people interested in Medieval arts, skills and lifestyle. Dressing up in appropriate garb, they partake of feasts, tournaments, artistic competitions, crafts, revelry and dance. If you enjoy Renaissance Faires and Festivals, there is a good chance you will like the people and lifestyle of this friendly society. 

It's kingdoms cover the whole world, so wherever you live you are in one of those kingdoms. Each kingdom is divided into baronies and other groups, with lords and ladies presiding over them. At the top are the king and queen who preside over their realm -- then in due time they bestow their crown upon another. Some kingdoms have activities going on virtually every week of the year.

One of the best parts of all this is that you do not have to be a member to take part in the many events that are held. So people who are curious to see what it is all about can go to an event -- or three or four -- and see if they like the people there and the kinds of things that are going on. To receive the various offices and honors one needs to be a member, but by then you would have joined anyway to keep up on everything that is going on.

If you are curious to know a little more about all this, you can tap into a lot of good information here. To see what activities are going on now and in the coming weeks, find the kingdom for your area in the list below. Then click on its name and you will see the local website that has all the events and some of the people in your part of the world. Dabble a little or a lot, as the spirit moves you.
