Forward into the Past XVII

description:
Since 1990, the Kitchener-Waterloo branch (Bryniau Tywynnog) of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) has presented a day of classes exemplifying the best of the Middle Ages. Over the years, several other groups such as the Dark Ages Recreation Company, Regia, and AEMMA have joined the SCA in making this an exciting and educational event. FITP is a non-profit event with any profit going to the local chapter of the SCA (a non-profit group). The local chapter also covers the losses in the years where FITP loses money.

FITP is held at Scholar's Hall on Trillium Drive in Kitchener.

Each year our goal is to bring you many enjoyable hours of classes on a very wide range of topics. Classes can happen in several different formats. Hands-on craft classes (we call them Practicums) that will teach you different aspects of medieval life, and Lecture style classes are the most common.

Don't worry about wearing funny clothes, just come out and have fun.
