On Sunday, September 29th, 2019, from 11:30 to 6:00, the New York City chapter of the S.C.A. will once again be participating in The Medieval Festival at the Cloisters in Fort Tryon Park, the largest event of its kind in our area, with an audience of approximately 60,000.
Please join us as we exhibit the wide range of Society activities to the public, including medieval arts and sciences, crafts and clothing, fencing and armored combat, dance and song, chivalry and pageantry.
We’ll post additional information about the event here soon, including a schedule for the fighting and performance areas.
In the meantime, please consider volunteering to assist, as we are in need of many hands for set up, take down, organizing, and hosting for this demonstration.
If you have items or skills you wish to display at the demonstration, please contact the event stewards so we can organize space and logistics with you. We are keen to demonstrate many forms of art & science including music, fiber arts, scribal arts, arms and armor, blacksmithing, jewelry making, games, clothing & millinery. If you’d like to demonstrate a skill that is not listed, please let us know.
We welcome fencers and fighters from near and far! Our fencing champion and heavy fighting champion will be hosting their respective provincial championship tournaments at the festival this year. Come to demonstrate your skills before an eager audience, and receive recognition and glory within the Province!
We are also seeking chatelaines and other volunteers to help staff chatelaine tables. These tables will make it easier for onlookers and those curious of our crafts to come and discuss more in depth what the Society of Creative Anachronism does and how they can get more involved.
If you wish to volunteer with any of the needs above, or in general, or simply wish to come and have fun with us, please contact the Event Stewards! You can reach out to us through email or Facebook:
It takes many hands to make a village, and we welcome each and everyone one of you to come and attend with us at this year’s demonstration!
Yours in Service,
The Event Stewards of The SCA Cloisters 2019 Demo
