San Jose, CA
From The Page (October, 2011):
Newcomers and experienced members are invited for a full day of classes, workshops, lectures, panel discussions, and demonstrations on all topics of pre-1600 history and life. This landmark church setting has 10 class spaces, including a beautiful dance floor, a sanctuary with great acoustics and a labyrinth rug, plus a public park across the street for combat sessions. We'll have a special class track to welcome those new to the SCA, and we're planning a range of classes at different experience levels on costume, music, chivalry, history, food, dance, culture, legends, and more. A few classes have limited attendance and materials/tool requirements so please check the website in advance for specifics, but you can join all the other classes on the day of the event.
