Welcome to the Bailiwick of Ivyeinrust! The Bailiwick is a University of Pennsylvania students-run branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism serving Center City Philadelphia, South Philly, West Philadelphia, the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, the University of the Sciences, the University of the Arts, Temple University and surrounding areas.

We are a non-profit educational organization devoted to the study and recreation of the pre-17th Century world. We are participatory in nature: rather than being mere spectators, we dress, dance, fight and feast much as was done before the year 1600. We research various arts and sciences from our chosen period, and we share what we have learned. However, we are also a very social group: we learn while having fun!

The Bailiwick of Ivyeinrust is a canton of the Barony of Bhakail, the chapter of the SCA covering the Greater Philadelphia area. (A canton is a smaller, local branch reporting through a barony.) Members of the Bailiwick are also full and active members of the Barony of Bhakail.

New to the SCA? — The SCA’s official newcomers’ page with guides and information about getting started.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our activities or events!
