The Barony of Vulcanfeldt is located in the central region of the Kingdom of An Tir of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Vulcanfeldt proudly claims Yakima (Washington) and its environs (Yakima and Kittitas Counties) as its own. Our lands stretch from Ellensburg and Cle Elum in the north, to Grandview in the south and Tampico in the west to Moxee and beyond in the east. Born in the year of Mount St. Helens’ fiery eruption, 1980, the Barony of Vulcanfeldt is an area of rich volcanic soil. It is said that the lands within our barony’s borders (Yakima County) ranks first in the United States in the number of all fruit trees and that it produces more apples, mint, winter pears, and hops than any other county.
We are an active Barony and host Kingdom-level events as well as local practices in heavy combat fighting, archery, rapier fighting, medieval arts and sciences (from cooking medieval recipes to weaving and garb making, from bardic performances to archeological research), and just generally play in the “modern middle ages.” All are welcome to come and experience the fun of making and wearing medieval garb, feasting on medieval meals, learning about medieval culture, watching (or even participating in) contests of combat and wars against other baronies, and making friendships that last a lifetime. Check out our calendar of events and come introduce yourself.
Not sure what the SCA is all about? “The Society for Creative Anachronism is an inclusive community pursuing research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat and culture. The lives of participants are enriched as we gain knowledge of history through activities, demonstrations, and events.” Learn more here!
