Scarborough Renaissance Festival® is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide!
We've been longtime partners with our 16th century hero friends at Scarborough Renaissance Festival® in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area (Waxahachie, TX to be exact), so it's always a blast talking about what their weddings offer. As a lifelong Ren Fest nut myself, I can't stop ogling weddings that feature armor, weapons (peace-tied, natch!), dragons, corsets, and a whole royal court at the ready. It's so immersive and whimsical and I get giddy just imagining what new Medieval and Renaissance-inspired weddings will come our way out of Scarborough. The best part? YOUR WEDDING CAN BE THERE, TOO!

Here's what you can expect by booking an all-inclusive (and ultimate TBT!) wedding at the Scarborough Renaissance Festival…

All-inclusive, you say? Oh heck yes

Weddings take place in their gorgeous wedding garden and can include sword arches, live period music, Renaissance entertainment, themed wedding cakes (like dragons!), flower garlands, delicious Renaissance-themed banquets (like turkey legs, rogue sandwiches, beef ribs, chicken-on-a-stake, breads, and Scarborough Mead!), and maybe even a visit from the resident royalty.

Of course, admission tickets to the festival are included with all wedding packages so that all of your guests can roam the festivities of Scarborough Renaissance Festival to see combat jousting, birds of prey exhibitions, a mermaid lagoon(!), a Mythical Monster Museum, the Dungeon of Yorkshire Tower, a petting zoo, archery, and 21 stages of swordplay, music, comedy, and so many more types of entertainment. There's more to see and do than ANY kind of typical wedding venue.

Choose a theme that fits you!

Renaissance Fests always have theme weekends which can help you pick the perfect 16th century or fantasy theme. You can go with Knights in Shining Armor and their Ladies in Waiting, Lords and Ladies of the Court, English Villagers, Celtics, Pirates, Fairies, and anything you can imagine.

They'll totally help you make it happen, too. Since there are hundreds of skilled artisans affiliated with the festival, you can take advantage of their talents to craft up the look, decor, and favors you want.
