The Barony of Cynnabar is a chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Cynnabar hosts several events and demos throughout the year where we re-create the Middle Ages. In addition to these events we also have regular practices where we teach and learn our skills.

Regularly scheduled activities include:

Anyone is welcome to attend any of our demos, practices or events. Loaner weapons, armor, clothing, music and more are available for newcomers!

    Thursday night Baronial practice is going to try out a new venue this evening. The parking is a little better, the bathrooms are a little closer, and there is more foot traffic (passive recruitment oppertunity). The address is 2025 East Clark Rd, Ypsilanti MI. That address is actually the Township community center, but we will be at the park directly across the street, which doesnt seem to have an address.

    To all Kings, Princes, knights and gentles of cote armor, greetings. Know that upon the fifth day of November in the two thousand and sixteenth year of our Lord, by leave of His most noble majesty, a Grande Tournament will be held in the Barony of Cynnabar.

    All men at arms are invited to present themselves in proper panoply for a day of festivities and combat à plaisance. There shall be a combat on foot in the Crown style, a combat from the pages of antiquity pitting warriors against a ferocious lion, and finally the field shall be held by the tenans of Cynnabar against all comers.
