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!)
