What can I do at a Renaissance Faire in Connecticut?
Renaissance faires are filled with all sorts of fun activities. There are usually booths for food and shopping. They will provide a range of food and drinks for you to try. Many Ren faires will have live music and entertainment. You can dress up in medieval clothing or wear a fantasy outfit. Some faires have weekend themes for you to enjoy. Others follow a made-up storyline with different characters that interact with guests. Regardless, faires and festivals are intended for people to have fun.
What happens at an SCA event?
SCA stands for Society for Creative Anachronism. This group focuses on historical reenactments. They can cover various styles and looks, from Vikings to Renaissance and more. Some SCA participants act as officers and rulers over their part of the organization, such as a king, queen, or baron.
While the exact rules vary from group to group, they strive for as much historical accuracy as possible. Many SCA events will be battles. Others focus on the artistic and scientific aspects of reenacting. In fact, many groups will have symposiums dedicated to these topics. Make sure to reach out to your local organizations to find out all their rules and activities.
