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, host and 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.

Local Groups
Local groups can read Society Seneschal’s Media Relations and External Publicity Policy at the SCA website. Local group Seneschals should be familiar with this policy. An excellent article, Our Medieval World in the Media’s Eye, describes the purpose of the Media Liaison and is great reading for local group Seneschals. You can also obtain Press Releases and Sample Press Releases at the SCA website.
