Media Relations

About the SCA

The SCA 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 may feature tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, and more. Our "royalty" hold courts at which they recognize and honor members for their contributions to the group.

Medieval Demonstrations

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.

As an educational organization, we do presentations for the general public, known as a "demos." We do educational demos for schools and scouting groups; sometimes in shopping malls, movie openings or at community sponsored cultural events. The types of demonstrations may depend on the venue, but generally can include, but are not limited to, medieval martial arts (armoured combat, rapier combat & archery), calligraphy, fiber arts, music & dance, heraldry, clothing, everyday objects and more.

The local group's officers that are in charge of demonstrations are the Seneschal (chapter president) and the Demo coordinator.
