Activities and Events

An invitation to join us

Shire meetings
The members of Montevale would love to have you become involved in our shire. You’ll find us to be a very friendly and accepting group of medieval enthusiasts of all ages. If you live anywhere in or near Chambersburg, PA, we invite you to our monthly meetings at the Career Magnet School, 2459 Loop Rd Chambersburg, PA 17202.  Our meetings are usually held on the second Friday of the month at the same time as one of our fighter practices, depending on the availability of indoor space at the school.  In May our meetings will be on the third Friday, May 19, at 7 pm. If you are already part of another SCA group, you will be most welcome at any of our regular activities and at our events.

Fighter Practices

We are still holding indoor fighter practices on Friday nights.  Our new location is the Career Magnet School, 2459 Loop Rd Chambersburg, PA 17202, beginning at 6 pm.  Because of the school’s activities, we cannot use their gym every Friday, but as the weather gets warmer, we may end up being outside anyway.  Upcoming scheduled dates for fighter practices are  April 21, May 5, and May 19.  You can also check our Facebook group “Shire of Montevale” for details!

A&S Workshops

In the past, we have held workshops on silk banner-making, stitching Queen’s favors, and making your own garb.  Check back here for announcements of upcoming workshops.

Shire Wars VII

Montevale has been one of the co-host shires for the annual Shire Wars event, a joint effort by a number of shires in the southwestern part of the East Kingdom.  In 2017, Shire Wars VII will be held Oct. 20-22 at the Camp Bashore Boy Scout Reservation, Jonestown, PA.  Additional information will be posted here as it becomes available.
