We are pleased to announce the upcoming Arts in the Park event, held Sunday, August 2, 2014 at Allied Gardens Recreation Center (5155 Greenbrier Ave, SD, CA, 92120). The demo will be open to the public from 1:00-4:00 pm.

In an effort to intrigue the public, enrich our numbers, and show off our general awesomeness, Arts in the Park will also be held in conjunction with Iron Brigade practice. This date is the first Iron Brigade practice after Comic Con, and we expect a large turnout from those that want to see what the Society for Creative Anachronism is all about.

The Barony of Calafia is extending the invitation to all that would love to come, spend the afternoon, and show the public why Calafia and the SCA is such a wonderful place to make friends, learn, and create.  Artisans and creative Gentles in Calafia are invited to bring items to display. If anyone has something to bring, we will have tables, space, and shade for showing it off. Anyone is welcome to bring their own shade structure, especially those that look period.  It would be lovely to have some classes and demos available as well, so if anyone would like to teach (even a short class) or demonstrate a craft, it would be most welcome.
