The Shire of Silverkeep is an SCA branch in the Kingdom of Artemisia, based in Bozeman Montana.

The Shire has two important events, one is the summer event "Castle Siege" and the winter event "Birthday Bash".

Castle Siege is a weekend camping event built upon the theme of siege warfare. The Silverkeep rapier champion tourney is at this event.

Birthday Bash is Silverkeeps classic event and the event where the Shire (heavy) champion tourney is held. The former "bearpit" of Silverkeep was once held here but has been retired. This event is themed to a changing time and place and is indoors with an included feast.

The Shire has a brewers guild the "Spirits of Silverkeep" that is currently on hiatus until more brewers join it and the woodworkers guild.

They have a strong relationship with MSU (Montana State University) and hold fighter practices in winter on Sundays at the SOB Barn. In good weather they hold practice at the Bozeman pond. The University is also where meetings are held as is the public libraries of Bozeman and Belgrade.
