Rivers Region has a long legacy of educational events from Ithras, War Colleges and Sport of Kings to name a few; An Tir Arts Academy, “Living the Dream, the Arts of the SCA” is planned as an event which will encompass the spectrum and diversity of interests that characterize the SCA.

Nine tracks of classes will be presented over  four days, culminating in a day of tournaments and presentations, feasts and festivities. On the final day, many of the skills and items created during the prior days will be presented. There will be fighting tournaments, a fashion parade, dancing, bardic performances and  revels on the eric.   There will be a Children‘s track with young people‘s versions of these same activities – simple cooking, simple music, simple dancing. Boffer fighting, simple crafts, etc.

Featuring a  Tourney  like no other  the Iron Trident, for one and all!
