The Shire of Rising Stone is the local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA), a not-for-profit educational organization which studies the Middle Ages by recreating the pastimes and crafts of the period. Our activities include tournaments, festivals, classes, feasts, and all manner of arts and sciences you would find in the culture of pre-1600s western Europe.
Attending weekend events is the major activity in the SCA. Events are where participation in the SCA all comes together. Members from local SCA groups gather for the opportunity to put on medieval clothing; socialize and generally have a good time. You can generally find an events any weekend of the year. During the rest of the month, we hold fighter practices, Arts & Science nights, and group business meetings. Please check the Shire Calendar for the location and times or contact one of our officers for more information.
