Kingdom of Cornucopia (New World Reenactors) is a live-steel medieval reenactment group based in the Hampton Roads region in Virginia, with members in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Newport News, Richmond surroundings, North Carolina and California. The group was founded in 1992 by Angel and Kirsty Reyes. We are a role-playing educational group, based on Southern Spain in the 13th Century (1273AD, King Alfonse X reign). Although most of our monthly events are in Suffolk, we also participate in Harvest Faire in Newport News, History Alive at Norfolk Botanical Gardens and the Hampton Roads Medieval Faire in Suffolk. Come on out and visit or join us. (Please bring a bag of smiles!)

SAVGR Society of Amateur Vikings for General Reenactment

Ostvik Vikings

The Ostvik Vikings are the living history reenactment group based out of Virginia Beach, Virginia. We endeavor to study all aspects of life in Scandinavia during the years of 975 to 1025 - the years of the discovery of North America and trade between Norway, the British Isles, and Greenland and Iceland.  In-camp demonstrations may include sewing, cooking, leatherworking and woodworking, blacksmithing and even beekeeping. We also engage in fast paced, action packed combat techniques from the Viking age. The shield, spear, axe, sword and knife, as well as the long bow and group field maneuvers.

Fenvald Vikings

The Fenvald Vikings is the living history group known simply as The Fenvald, roughly translated as the people of the bog and their strength or authority.  We endeavor to study life in Western Scandinavia during the years of 975 to 1025, when Viking trading and raiding were vital to Norse economies and seafaring during the westward expansion.   We engage in the combat techniques of the period as well as in demonstrating everyday life skills of foodways, clothing production, blacksmithing, weaponry.   We're always looking for new members and new skills.
