Are you interested in joining with the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA)? We are so glad you want to join us in this great society for learning about, sharing in, and recreating the past! newcomers can find a wealth of information on the Society Newcomers page by clicking the link below:

Here in Rio we are also happy to help in any ways we can. Please contact us and via our email at and our Chatelaine (The Officer for welcoming New Comers) will get back to you shortly.

Like most local groups, we host a variety of activities throughout the year, which can include meetings, arts and sciences workshops, combat practices, and weekend events. Check out our Defender of the Silver Pass and Yule Events!

Once you find an activity that interests you, check with the Chatelaine or Seneschal to see if there are any requirements or costs to participate (such a materials fee or food cost). Then visit! Go have fun! You can learn more about Getting Ready for your First Event in this preview article from the Known World Handbook!

The most important thing you can do on your first visit to the SCA is introduce yourself and ask questions. Society participants have a wide range of interests and love to share with people who want to learn about them. So come join us!
