The Period Events & Entertainments Re-Creation Society, Inc., is a Nonprofit Corporation dedicated to remembering, researching, and re-creating the performing arts of the past.
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, we endeavor to accomplish our noble goals by sponsoring events, giving classes, performing in various living history events, and just generally carrying on. Historic dance, drama, music, literature and costume are all a part of PEERS' activities.
More than anything else, we are dedicated to the idea of
entertainment as something for people to do rather than

How do you participate in the activities of PEERS? First of all,
by coming to our events. You may pay at
the door, purchase tickets in advance, or subscribe
for a year's worth of events. And, of course, like all nonprofit
organizations we are happy to accept donations.
Donations may be made by check or via PayPal,
and PEERS is also registered with eScrip and
PEERS offers weekly dance classes.
When you attend a PEERS event, you have a great deal of flexibility in how to participate. Many people dress up in appropriate costumes, but many do not. Some people choose to portray particular historical or literary characters; others simply come to enjoy themselves. The choice is yours. PEERS is dedicated to a harassment-free experience for everyone. Our anti-harassment policy can be found here.
Remember the cardinal rule of PEERS: If you're having fun, you're doing it right!
