Come see the Society for Creative Anachronism at this year’s Arts Festival!
Come back to a time of kings and queens, knights in shining armor, and the time of Shakespeare’s plays. Come cheer on your favorite fighter, hear a story and try your hand at calligraphy. Immerse yourself in the world of the Middle Ages! The Society for Creative Anachronism is an international organization dedicated to researching and recreating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. The SCA’s “Known World” consists of 19 Kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Please find us at sca.org.
The SCA is active all throughout the Festival. Once again this year you can explore the arts and crafts of a by-gone age when you stop by the Middle Ages Encampment in Soldier’s Park, where members of the local chapter of the SCA invite you to visit our many interactive booths. The Encampment is open to the public from 11 am to 4 pm. Admission is always free! They will also have a booth at Hufnagle Park, where they will have an arts display, as well as dancing and combat demonstrations from 12:45-1-15 as well as 10-11 at Post Office Square.
Information about the local chapter, called the Shire of Abhainn Ciach Ghlais, and its activities can be found at http://www.eg.bucknell.edu/~acg/.
