Event details

At long last, the Great Northeastern War returns for its 34th year! 

We will once again take to the fields of Hebron for an event full of all the things you love - fighting, fencing, archery, thrown weapons, shopping, dancing, revelry, bardic performances, camping under the stars and more.

We will be posting details about COVID safety procedures and any other information that may not be as widely known about how things will work this year at the website above, and on East Kingdom Social Media. 

Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events.  By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks.  You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.

From Bethel, Berlin, Montpelier, Burlington, Montreal, and similar points West:

Please consult a map to find your best route to pick up Route 26 South west of the towns of Norway and Oxford, Maine.  For most folks coming in from Northern New Hampshire and Vermont, you’ll want to cross the Maine/NH border on Route 2 and pick up Route 26 South in Bethel, Maine, but there are other possible routes as well, depending on your starting point.

Follow Route 26 South through the Western Maine towns of Bryant Pond, Paris, Norway, and into the town of Oxford.  About two miles after you pass through the business district of the town of Oxford, you’ll come to traffic lights which mark the entrance to a Wal-Mart (on your right).  Pass straight through the lights, continuing South on Route 26.  1.8 miles after the Wal-Mart, you’ll pass the Oxford Plains Fun Park on your right, closely followed by Oxford Plains Speedway on your left.  About 1.7 miles after the speedway, turn left onto Route 121 North (a Citgo station marks the corner of this intersection, on your left).  Follow Route 121 North, into the town of Mechanic Falls.  After 4.4 miles, you will arrive at a 4-way intersection with a traffic light.

Turn left at the light (keeping the Cumberland Farms on your left) onto Route 124 North.  Follow Route 124 North into the town of Minot.  4.4 miles from the light you will come to a strange intersection, which is marked as the junction of Routes 124 and 119.  Turn right at the Yield sign and then immediately left at the T intersection (heading away from the church), staying on Route 124 North.

Continue a further 2.3 miles on Route 124 North, into the town of Hebron.  Hebron Pines Campground is clearly marked, on your left.
