UDATE: If you are in the Dallas area, the last three days of this festival is this Memorial Day Weekend. Here’s a bit more about it:
Step through the gates of Scarborough Village and feel your cares slip away. Thrill to the thunder of hooves and crash of lance on shield at the joust. Watch in amazement as birds of prey swoop just inches above your head at the command of the Royal Falconer.
Enjoy swordplay, comedy, music and other unique entertainment on 21 stages. Witness artisans create one-of-a-kind works of art. Browse 200 quaint shoppes for unique handmade jewelry, clothing, leather goods and other offerings. Feast like a King on food and drink from around the world.
Grab a turkey leg and stroll among the villagers of Scarborough. Spend the day in the 16th Century and have the time of your life.
Have you ever been to a Renaissance Festival? Did you take kids? Did you and they enjoy it? I’m toying with the idea of taking my family to the local renaissance festival. The theme last weekend at Scarborough Renaissance Festival was PIRATES! ARRRR!
Here’s what’s on tap (besides the ice cold Guinness) for Scarborough Renaissance Festival near Dallas this weekend:
This is it, the last weekend, the final three days of the season! One last weekend to embrace the magic, music and merriment that is Scarborough Renaissance Festival. Two of your favorite acts return to help us celebrate the turning of the season; Doktor Kaboom and Owain Phyfe. Doktor Kaboom will be on the Crown Stage with Don Juan and Miguel and Owain Phyfe will be appearing on the Sea Hag stage in Pecan Grove at 12:30 and 3 pm, as well as other locations throughout the day.
To celebrate Memorial Day Monday, they will be offering their Two & Thirty ticket for the Memorial Day Monday. The ticket is only good for admittance after 2:30 and only on Memorial Day, May 30. This ticket will not be sold at the gate. It is only available online.
Finally, the Cat and Fiddle Wine Tasting will be featuring “Flynn’s Favorites”, six wines that have been personally selected by your host Flynn Markley.
What do you think? Should we go?
