Introduction and Welcome

We are a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international organization dedicated to researching and recreating pre-17th Century European history. We are located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

The Barony of Borealis is part of the Kingdom of Avacal, which is part of the worldwide SCA organization.

A Word from our Baron and Baroness

Unto the great people of Borealis we send warmest greetings.

We welcome you to our Barony. We have many events and activities you are most certainly encouraged to try out and experience for yourself.

Heavy fighters, rapier, archery, arts and sciences, and bardic are just some of the activities you can experience within the SCA. We have specialty research groups, crafting, embroidery, costume makers, leather workers, all with a distinctively medieval flavour.

If you would like to roll back a few centuries and join us, or just want to meet our players, then we suggest coming to our monthly tavern meetings. We even have medieval clothing in our Gold Key clothing collection for you to borrow so you can fit right in.

We look forward to meeting you and helping you be part of the splendour that is our home, our Barony of Borealis.


Robert & Olena
