Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the SCA and our activities in relation to our prospective use of your facilities for our event

What is the SCA?

The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA), is an international, non-profit, educational

organization designed as a hands-on, learn-by-doing model to research and re-create European life prior

to 1600.

At our events, members strive to recapture the ambiance of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. This

requires research into such topics as clothing, weaponry, armor, food, music, and innumerable other arts

and crafts. We then attempt to practice and teach what we have learned as authentically as possible, by

constructing reproductions of medieval artifacts, practicing the arts and crafts we have researched,

learning to fight with a sword and shield, and so on.

The SCA began with a small backyard tournament in Berkeley in 1966. It was incorporated in California

in 1968 and has grown steadily to a membership of approximately 26,000 paid members, with an

estimated figure of perhaps double that number who participate without formal membership. Members

can be found in the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and Far East, South Africa, Australia,

and New Zealand.
