Shire of Hadchester

Welcome to the Shire of Hadchester!

The Shire of Hadchester branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, located in the mid-coast area of Maine, was established in 2007 and promoted to full Shire Status in 2014.

The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our "Known World" consists of 19 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.

Maine has many events which are only a couple of hours distance for just about anyone.  If you'd like to learn more about us, the Shire of Hadchester, visit the pages in this website.
