Estrella War is a week-long, annual event hosted by the Kingdom of Atenveldt, one of 19 Kingdoms (regional chapters) of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a not-for-profit educational organization that studies western European history by recreating the "best" pastimes and crafts of the Middle Ages.
SCA participants devote their free time to tournaments, educational collegiums (classes), feasts, revels, the many forms of medieval warfare, and all sorts of arts and sciences dating from pre-1600s western Europe. Currently in its 26th year, the Estrella War brings together participants from SCA chapters around the world to conduct a medieval style two-sided war between SCA Kingdoms.
Each year, the Kingdom of Atenveldt asks one or more other SCA Kingdoms to participate as Principal Kingdoms at Estrella War. For Estrella War XXVI (Feb 2010), the Kingdom of Atenveldt and its allies will form one Allied Realm in the conflict, and the Kingdom of the Outlands and its allies will form the opposing Realm.
Estrella War offers all the members of your family a chance to spend a week camping and living with thousands of others as part of a medieval town with a robust Merchant’s Row. Held in February at Canyon Moon Ranch in Florence, AZ, the event provides those who are interested in things Medieval with a diverse combination of the exciting activities offered by the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). We invite you to explore the details of the event on these webpages, and to come join us in the warm Atenveldt Sun for a Glorious escape from the modern world!
