Still Time to Go Medieval

The T-Mobile Scarborough Renaissance Festival will celebrate its 40th season on eight consecutive weekends through May 31, plus Memorial Day, on with new shows, new artisans and longtime favorites. All COVID-19 CDC protocols and guidelines will be followed.

Acrobats, comedians, instrumentalists, magicians, Scottish bagpipe and drums corps, a dancing weasel and even a sword swallower are just part of the festival fun. New shopping opportunities include unique jewelry, swords, wood art, chocolate, CBD, chainmail, sculpted fairies, teas and salts, maps and scrolls, apparel, accessories and more.

A Parakeet aviary is new this season, and the Scarborough Academy of Performing Arts has been working hard to bring the re-created 16th-century village alive. Visitors will enjoy full combat armored jousting, birds of prey exhibitions, the Mermaid Lagoon, Knighting ceremonies, a 50+ member performing company and 25 stages of interactive and unique entertainment.

Themes include a Live the Fantasy and Spring Celebration; Chivalry Weekend on May 8 and 9; Celtic Weekend on May 15 and 16; Legends of the Seas on May 22 and 23; and the Last Huzzah on May 29, 30 and 31.
