Welcome to Vest Yorvik

The Canton of Vest Yorvik is a branch of of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc (SCA), a non-profit educational organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our members also study the Orient, the Middle East and North Africa, and the interaction between these regions during this period.

The SCA consists of over 70,000 participants in 19 SCA "kingdoms" around the world. Dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, we attend events including tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, and more.

SCA members study and put into practice a wide range of arts and sciences, such as:

  • armour construction
  • tournament combat
  • costuming and textile arts
  • cooking and brewing
  • heraldry
  • dancing and music
  • calligraphy and illumination

In these pages you will find information about the SCA including a detailed Newcomer's Guide, local activities, Vest Yorvik contacts, and more. Life in the Current Middle Ages awaits you!
