Barony of Vatavia

The Barony of Vatavia is a regional group within the Kingdom of Calontir.   We are members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, better known as the SCA.  Vatavia is home to Wichita, Kansas, and the greater surrounding area.  We have members from as far away as Peabody, Pratt, and Winfield!

The SCA is an international organization renowned for its dedication towards researching and recreating aspects of the Middle Ages, not as they were, but as we would have liked them to have been.  The SCA mostly concentrates on studying European History, but many members have chosen to study the Middle East and explore the interaction between Europe and Asia during this period.

If you are unfamiliar with the Society for Creative Anachronism, check out the Society's Introduction Guide for an explanation about the organization and what it is we do.

If you are already familiar with how we do things, great!  Our site provides additional information about the events and people of interest within Vatavia, and you are always welcome to come join us Wednesday evenings at Make ICT.  We always have something going on - be sure to check out our Interest Groups page for more information and directions to many of our activities!

Please note that you need not be a member to participate in any of our activities. If you have any questions, or would like help getting involved, please visit our Chatelaine page or contact our Chatelaine directly.  We'd love to hear from you!

Unto our much beloved Populace,


We do hope everyone has recovered from their journey home from this Spring’s Faire, which we are glad to say was a rousing, spectacular success! Thank you to everyone who worked and lent a hand in making it so. The amount of interest, engagement, and interaction are exactly the very things we want to see and build on here in the Barony.

We look forward to seeing each and every one of you next weekend at Champions Tourney.

If you have seen someone doing something incredibly cool or helping out in a manner that has stood out to you lately, please take a moment to let us know.

Here are this week’s scheduled activities:

Our grand Barony’s anniversary is drawing nigh, and in celebration we would host a day of revelry and tourneys to celebrate the honor and chivalry of our noble people. These tournaments shall determine the new Champions of our Barony as the victors of each tourney present themselves throughout the day. These most honored combatants shall be revered by the populace until next year’s anniversary when they must then either step down or stand once more to face all new challengers and defend their titles.

Feasting for the event will be a period potluck. An assortment of roasted meats will be provided by the Baronage.

We ask that members of the populace bring a period side dish to pair with the main course. Breads, cheeses, fruits, the possibilities are endless.
