Sword Fight at three barons fair, Anchorage alaska
Huzzah!
Quote from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Alaska’s largest renaissance fair. Featuring more than 40 food and craft vendors, over 150 costumed performers, the Tomato Show (don’t ask), the Magicians’ Guild, the Lakeside Players, the Wild Rovers, and the Blue, Red and Green Barons and More. Plus a whole cast of more freaky people who have nothing better to do than spend the entire year preparing for this anachronistic event. Long may they run.

Although not part of the Society for Creative Anachronism this fair is Alaska's own homegrown version. A reenactment of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries they encourage you to come in costume and get with the creative anachronistic side of your alter-ego.

For those that care to known "The Society for Creative Anachronism" can be traced back to the graduation party of author Diana Paxson, a medieval studies graduate n Berkeley, California on May 1, 1966.
The graduation party began with a "Grand Tournament" in which the participants wore motorcycle helmets, fencing masks, and usually some semblance of a costume, and whacked away at each other with weapons including plywood swords, padded maces, and even a fencing foil. It ended with a parade down Telegraph Avenue with everyone singing "Greensleeves". It was styled as a "protest against the 20th century". The name "Society for Creative Anachronism" was coined by science fiction author Marion Zimmer Bradley, an early participant, when the nascent group needed an official name in order to reserve a park for a tournament.
