This 2 day long gathering of the local chapter of the Society For Creative Anachronism http://www.aquaterra.antir.sca.org brings together regional history enthusiasts from as far away as Idaho, Oregon and Vancouver BC.

The SCA is an international not-for-profit organization devoted to bringing the Middle Ages and Renaissance to life through research and re-enactment, and employing their knowledge of history to enrich their lives and the lives of others. With over 100,000 participants worldwide, the SCA is one of largest living history societies in the world.

Ursulmas Medieval Faire features historic arts and crafts available for purchase, crafts and cooking demonstrations, demonstrations of armored tournament combat, and family games, with a special focus on life in a medieval village of during faire time.

Wearing armor made as authentically as possible to emulate the mail, boiled leather, and plate steel used between the 10th and 15th centuries, combatants - who have been through rigorous safety training and equipment inspections to meet SCA armor standards - wield broadswords, maces, and clubs made of rattan to simulate the balance and handling of the original weapons, without the lethal qualities.

Drawing inspiration from the guilds and great universities of the historic world, the SCA places a strong emphasis on teaching and sharing knowledge. There will be many demonstrations of the arts and sciences of the time period.
