Located in the Panhandle of Florida
(Fort Walton Beach, Niceville, Destin, Mary Esther, and surrounding area).

The Shire Phoenix Glade is the Fort Walton Beach Chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronisms (SCA), an international organization dedicated to recreating the historical life and combat of pre-17th-century Europe. Our Shire is just a small part of the world wide, non-profit organization known as the SCA. We are located within the Kingdom of Meridies (see below for Kingdom details).

The SCA is a group designed for individual participation and is not a spectator activity. It allows members to be as active or inactive as they wish, but unlike Renaissance Fairs, you take part in the activities. We learn about the middle ages by attempting to re-create the best aspects of the era, and without the fleas and plagues, and with indoor plumbing.

Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which may feature tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, and more. Our "royalty" hold courts at which they recognize and honor members for their contributions to the group.

If you would like more information about the SCA you can go to www.sca.org

The Shire of Phoenix Glade welcomes all newcomers, and we encourage interested gentles to check us out. All meetings are open to the public, and we like seeing new faces. If you are new to the SCA, and would like more information on the Society or our Shire, please feel free to contact our Seneschal (Chapter President)

We meet for our monthly business meeting on the first wednesday of every month at the Niceville CITY HALL, 208 Partin Dr. North, Niceville FL 32578. City Hall is between the Library and the Police Department.

About the Kingdom - The SCA divides the world into Kingdoms; there are nineteen kingdoms at this time. Our kingdom (Meridies) encompasses most of the Southeastern United States: the Florida panhandle, Georgia, Alabama, Middle and East Tennessee and Kentucky, and part of southwestern Virginia. The name of our kingdom is derived from Latin and means "The Southlands".
