Hear ye, hear ye! You still have time to check out one of the biggest Renaissance fests in Texas. The Scarborough Renaissance Festival is hosted every year in Waxahachie and apparently everyone but I knew about it!

I've never been to a renaissance festival, not because I look down on them or anything, but because I'm not entirely sure my part of Texas hosts one! But I have heard of people who travel to many different Ren fairs across the country, and honestly, they look like a ton of 16th century fun!

The Scarborough Renaissance Festival has been a North Texas tradition that started back in 1981 and it begins in April and runs on Saturdays and Sundays and through Memorial Day; which means you still have lots of opportunities to check it out.

Now, if you're like me and have never been to a Renaissance festival, well, luckily there's the internet, because scrolling through all the TikToks really makes me want to go! Like, I've always wondered what there is to eat at the festival!

Looks like I would have enjoyed eating my way through the 16th century.

The Scarborough Renaissance Festival also has lots of shows to check out.

And every weekend, there's a different theme like Kid’s Free Weekend, Celtic Weekend, the Royal Ale Festival, Legends of the Seas and more. The Legends of the Sea one actually looks pretty cool!

Of course, dressing up is HIGHLY encouraged! So grab your Renaissance garb, get a steak on a stake and cheer on your favorite night.

15 Defunct Six Flags Over Texas Rides That Have Been Removed But Not Forgotten

These rides once stood proud and brought joy and terror, in some cases, to those who rode them at Six Flags Over Texas. These rides no longer exist at Six Flags Over Texas. Yes, The New Texas Giant is there, but The Texas Giant went through a complete remodel and redesign and received an upgraded steel track and has a new configuration, and is no longer like the OG, The Texas Giant.
