Every weekend throughout the Known Worlde events are held at which SCAdians come together to enjoy “the Middle Ages as they should have been.” Events can be a day, a weekend or, in a few cases like Pennsic a week or more in length. Events are hosted by a local group (or groups) and may be focussed on a specific activity such as medieval cookery or involve many different SCA activities.
Our baronial calendar is anchored by two major events each year. St. Eligius is an Arts & Sciences competition held every fall, with entrants of all skill levels from throughout the East Kingdom. Balfar’s Challenge is a martial tournament held each spring and is one of the first war practices of the year for our kingdom’s fighters, fencers & archers.
