The Kingdom of Calontir is a regional group within the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international organization dedicated to recreating aspects of the Middle Ages. If you are unfamiliar with the SCA, we would suggest starting with the newcomers section.

The region that makes up Calontir covers most of Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and a touch of Arkansas. If you are interested in contacting the SCA within this area, take a look at the Groups and Branches list or the Calontir Map. Join us as we learn about history by making it come alive. Follow us on Facebook, or you can contact us at info@calontir.org.

News & Announcements

What’s new in Calontir

Urgent Announcement: Coronation Postponed!

After consultation with Our Heirs, Our seneschal, and the event stewards, We have decided that We must postpone Coronation for one week. This is being done for the safety of Our populace, and with the complete agreement of everyone involved.

We were lucky that the same site is available next week (January 21st, 2017), and they are willing to allow us to change with such late notice. So the event will be at the same place, with the same schedule, just exactly one week later.

Please spread the news to every outlet you have access to. And if you are part of a phone tree, please activate that as well. We don't want anyone traveling to Forgotten Sea this weekend because they didn't know about the change.

Our extreme thanks to the event stewards and the site owner for working on this on such short notice.
