Do you have a love for things of the past?
A love of history?
An appreciation for costumes, crafts, and culture of different eras?
Do you dream of great battles and stories told around the fire with friends?
You might be a “SCAdian” and just not know it yet!
The Society for Creative Anachronism is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our “Known World” consists of 19 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.
In Maine, there are four major SCA groups and several sub-groups – one probably near you!
(And if there’s not, we’ll even help you start one!)
You don’t have to be a member to participate and you can be involved at your own comfort level. All that’s required is to make an effort to wear clothing of a style before 1600 C.E. and a desire to participate!
(We’ll even loan you the clothes to help you check us out!)
