About the Barony of Dragon’s Laire

The Barony of Dragon’s Laire is composed of Kitsap County and Northern Mason County in Washington State, USA. The barony is well known in the community for our annual June Faire, known to the modern public as the Kitsap Medieval Faire. Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds, interests and ages. We share an interest in the history and culture of the Middle Ages and pursue that interest through the study of combat techniques, arts and crafts, social structures and dress of the period. This study starts in the library and moves quickly to the forge, needle and tourney field for a real hands-on approach. This website provides a glimpse into our world and resources for our members.

The Barony of Dragon’s Laire is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). It is part of the Kingdom of An Tir, which covers Northwest U.S. and parts of Western Canada. The SCA is a not-for-profit educational organization that studies the history and culture of the Middle Ages by recreating it. The SCA has branches all over the USA and Canada, as well as many parts of Europe, Australia, and Asia. To locate a branch near you check the SCA Web site.

Meet our Chatelaine!

The Chatelaine (or Chatelain if the person is male) is in charge of welcoming newcomers to the Barony. She also organizes and oversees our small demonstrations (at schools and the like) and helps organize activities to make newcomers feel welcome and invited. The Chatelaine is a very important office for the Barony, and whoever holds the office works very hard indeed. Our current Chatelaine is Isemay MaKenze heraldic device for Isemay MaKenze. You can reach her via email and at most events and fighter practices and socials.

The Chatelaine has Known World Handbooks

If you are interested in learning about the SCA and how to participate in the organization, from cooking to costuming to service to fighting to more, the Known World Handbook is for you! Contact the Chatelain to ask about getting a copy!
