The Oregon Regency Society is a wholly not-for-profit organization of like-minded individuals. It is run entirely by volunteer effort. Its primary aim is to unite the groups and individuals dedicated to the appreciation of Jane Austen, Lord Byron, Beau Brummell, groups for English Country and Regency Dance, people that read and write Regency Romance, costumers specializing in Regency garments, historic reenactors and enthusiasts, Napoleonic and 1812 War reenactors and enthusiasts, Live Action Role Players (LARP), history students, literature students, regency era enthusiasts and so much more.
Our membership is broad and diverse. Members come from all walks of life: professionals, homemakers, students, scholars, young and old. Our group embraces civil, polite society, unified by a common love for the Regency Period and an enjoyment for the simple pleasures that our modern lives so infrequently offer to us. Our policy of universal inclusion results in a broad choice of activities, from events and groups that require period-accurate attire to costume-optional events.
Our all-inclusive policy is something we stand by with great alacrity. We do not exclude anyone for not having period-authentic costumes at most of our, events (some select events may have a costume-requirement), nor do we exclude for sex, gender, race, sexual orientation, or disability. Our #1 goal is just to have fun and to include as many people as possible.
