In New England, the Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) community hosts one another in a rotating series of “gatherings” for free fencing, exchanging of ideas, and providing attendees opportunities to broaden and deepen their understanding and practice of HEMA. Originally called Boston Sword Gatherings, the growth of HEMA in New England has allowed us to revitalize this tradition as New England Sword Gatherings (NESGs).
This page provides a schedule of upcoming events. Please reach out to the hosting club via their event link below for further details. The schedule will be updated periodically, so be sure to check back often!
