Traveling with Terry to the Scarborough Renaissance Festival – Cross Timbers Gazette | Southern Denton County | flower pile

What is the Scarborough Renaissance Festival? It’s a step back and interactive fun for everyone… 16th century style! And this weekend is a “last shake” fit for a king!

We just experienced this fun-filled escape from reality and had an absolute blast on the 41st season of the festival. He was also one of the most fun-to-watch events I’ve ever seen. Discover the recreation of a 35-acre English village to celebrate the visit of King Henry VIII’s sister, Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scotland and the Isles, and her guests to “Scarborough Village” with a festival of entertainment, artisans, food, magic and joy! Enjoy full combat galleries of duels and birds of prey; Mermaid Lake, 23 stages of continuous Renaissance-style entertainment and 75 members. We explored hundreds of shops featuring exquisite handicrafts and watched authentic artisans’ shows. It was fun to experience knight party, combat competitions, grand march, renaissance rides, skill games and much more. Enjoy food fit for a king with giant smoked turkey legs and the largest food selection in Texas plus delicious favorites from Village Bakery, Pasta Palace, and more! There is also a full service restaurant and 12 bars and pubs.

This is the latest shake-up – the last 2022 Scarborough Weekend in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. He’ll come out in style with a grand celebration of music, glamour, and magic over this 3-day Memorial Day weekend. This past weekend has a bonus as visitors can take part in a fun “Topsy Turvy Day” on Sunday, May 29 as the queens beg and the villagers become kings. Who will you become? The costumes are creative and interesting!
