Celebrate Chivalry May 7 & 8 at Scarborough Renaissance Festival

Dallas/Fort Worth, TX (May 2, 2022):  Scarborough Renaissance Festival® is celebrating Chivalry May 7 and 8 and invites everyone to come revel in the chivalry and romance of the Renaissance this weekend!
The Festival is proud to introduce its newest event, the Chocolate Sensations Tasting Event! The Chocolate Sensations Event will take visitors 21+ on a journey of discovering luscious chocolates and how they pair with their favorite wine & beer while being entertained by the wonderful musicians of Scarborough.  There will be tasting times at 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm each day. It is the perfect complement to the Celebrating Chivalry weekend! NOTE: Tickets for the Chocolate Sensations Tasting Event are SOLD OUT for 2022.
Each day at 11:30 am, couples are invited to celebrate their own modern-day romances with a Renaissance flair by participating in the Vow Renewal Ceremony at the Festival’s Royal Marquee (a new location for 2022 in the Pecan Grove area of the Festival). They will renew their vows and commitments to each other in a lovely, romantic ceremony that is free with Festival admission. For many visitors this is an annual tradition that simply cannot be missed!
Visitors can also join the Knights of the Noble Cause for lessons in how to be chivalrous at 3:00 pm each day at the Festival’s Royal Marquee (in the Pecan Grove area of the Festival). You are sure to see proof that chivalry is indeed alive and well in today’s world!
