Newcomers LVIII (2023)


Winds of Winter begin to blow, heralding all to join us for Newcomers LVIII! Come and celebrate with us! This event is geared towards Newcomers to learn more about the Society for Creative Anachronism and is also open to everyone to come and have a wonderful time! At this event you can discover the secrets of history, such as combat, arts, crafts, and culture from our seasoned members. You can also greet our new members who have joined over the past year and share your wisdom and wonder with them. Event activities include dancing, feasting, bardic, combat tournaments, and classes for the arts & sciences.


Call for Volunteers, please sign up here to help us create the best event possible:

Hands on arts and science workshops will be available throughout the day. Class workshops include drop spindle, woodworking, glass beads, SCA 101, hair braiding, heraldry, painting, embroidery, leather working, bardic, and more to be announced!

The rumors are true! Honest Nico will be docking his ship and selling his wares for a fundraiser for the Barony of Unser Hafen. Please bring cash or check.

Rapier and Heavy Tournaments, for those with two years or less experience fighting, will be held.  Experienced fighters please come help train and warm up the fighters.


A donation lunch will be provided.

A donation lunch consisting of fruit, veggies, lunch meat, cheese, hummus, boiled eggs and pita bread will be provided.

The evening feast will be a potluck in the theme of Harvest with Unser Hafen providing pork and beef roasts.

Please see the potluck coordination link to signup to bring a main dish, bread, side dishes or a dessert.

There will be a dessert competition!

Please bring your favorite medieval or medieval-inspired dessert.

Don’t miss this chance to feast and frolic before Winter comes!


Well met! Their Excellencies Freana and Richenda wish it to be known that they will hold a bardic to determine their new Pencerrd Bard at Newcomers! The bardic will take place during feast. Participants can either vie for the title of Pencerrd Bard, or can opt out but still perform for their adoring audience!


Their Excellencies ask that you bring one piece which can be spoken, sung, or performed and is pre 1600’s, sounds medieval (folks songs are great!), or is inspired by the SCA.

Please contact Countess Kitta with any questions or if you want to sign up!
