Welcome!

Here are some entry points where you can get involved in the SCA.

Crown Province of Østgarðr (New York Metro Area, NY)

You’ve already found our web site, which includes a calendar and information about different kinds of events. We also have a very active Facebook group, and a mailing list where various upcoming events are announced. Our electronic newsletter is called the Seahorse, sometimes known as the e-Horse.

If you have any questions or want to talk to someone about how to get involved, email the Chatelaine (sometimes called the Chatelain or Castellan), who is the officer in charge of welcoming newcomers and helping them find their way.

We’re part of The East Kingdom, and our members frequently participate in activities in neighboring areas. The East Kingdom Event Calendar is the best way to keep up to date with what’s been scheduled.

Worldwide SCA

Our parent organization, the Socity for Creative Anachronism, is a world-wide educational not-for-profit organization.
