In Stonemarche we are constantly having practices, classes, gatherings, and meetings of one sort and another.
Some are formal and some are informal. We are always looking forward to meeting new people interested in the SCA,
so don't be shy if you want to join us! You can find out what's going on right now on our Calendar.
As well as visiting our neighboring groups for events like Panteria, Great Northeastern War, Boredom War,
and others, we host a number of events ourselves.
A Market Day at Birka
Usually held the last weekend of January or the first in February, the Birka event is one greatly anticipated by
the East Kingdom as a hallmark to the coming event season. Birka is held in a hotel in Manchester, NH and
resembles more of a Con (convention) than a typical SCA event as we wander throughout the hotel mingling
with the "normals". Fighters throughout the region flock to Birka for its famous Bear-pit Tournament.
The ballrooms are taken over with fencing, youth fighting, fashion shows, Arts and Sciences classes, and lots and
lots of shopping for this one day event!
In the evening after Baronial and Royal court we can found in the hotel bar, restaurants, and catching up with
old friends in every pocket of the hotel.
