The Barony of Dragon's Mist is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism which is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating European history of the Middle Ages and Renaissance (pre-1600). We celebrate Art, Service and Chivalrous combat.
We are located in Washington and Clatsop Counties, Oregon, which is a part of the Rivers Region of the Kingdom of An Tir. We have members who study every aspect of medieval life. We are brewers, archers, calligraphers, heralds, fencers, spinners, blacksmiths, costumers, dancers, cooks and armored fighters. We enjoy feasting, spinning, needlepoint, equestrian, leather work, bead work, socializing, live weapons competition, period music, theatre and much more. If someone did it back then, you can bet someone is trying to do it now- Our goal is to learn through doing and sharing ones subject knowledge with others.
