The SCA is a practical history society, recreating the arts and skills of pre-17th century Europe. While dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, you can experience tournaments, royal courts, feasts, and dancing. You also have the opportunity to learn and practice ancient arts and skills such as, calligraphy, cooking, armoring, metalworking, carpentry, and needlework (to name just a few), within an all-ages social group. The SCA is a great place to make friends and learn transferable skills.
Our participants study nearly every facet of life from our period, the world of the Middle Ages before 1601. The Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization based in Milpitas, CA, with affiliate organizations in Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. Many Society activities are free to try or have very small fees for materials or admission and the SCA offers several options for memberships for individuals and families that add benefits to your Society experience.
