Unto the people who read these words, do we, Jean & Guillaine, Baron and Baroness Borealis, send our warmest regards and welcome to our Barony of Borealis.
Borealis is a place where all are welcome to come together for fellowship and fun, and we invite you to come out to our community events, our classes and our events to experience the SCA. We look forward to meeting you and sharing what our Barony has to offer.
Yours in Service,
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an inclusive community pursuing research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat and culture. The lives of participants are enriched as we gain knowledge of history through activities, demonstrations, and events.
Starting as a backyard party in the 1960’s, the SCA has grown to include chapters in every large and mid-sized city in North America, along with chapters in such places as England, Sweden, South Africa, Australia and Japan.
The SCA is divided into 20 geographic regions known as kingdoms, with smaller chapters located inside each one. Locally, we are in the Barony of Borealis which encompasses the city of Edmonton, Alberta and surrounding lands. We are a part of the Kingdom of Avacal that includes Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Peace Region area of BC.
