Dallas/Fort Worth, TX. (May 23, 2022): Scarborough Renaissance Festival® closes out its 41st season with the Last Huzzah – a grand celebration of music, merriment, and magic over the 3-day Memorial Day Weekend, May 28, 29, and 30, 2022.

Come Step Back in Time for the Time of your Life this Memorial Day holiday weekend with 20+ stages of extraordinary non-stop entertainment including full combat jousting, Birds of Prey exhibitions, the Mermaid Lagoon, Children’s Knighting ceremonies, combat competitions, music, dancing, whip artists, jugglers, acrobats, and so much more! Visitors can also discover hundreds of shoppes filled with exquisite crafts and amazing artisan demonstrations. Plus, there are Renaissance rides, games of skill, and food and drink fit for a King!

Visitors can join in the fun of Topsy Turvy day on Sunday, May 29th as queens become beggars and villagers become kings. Who will you become?!

On Memorial Day Monday, May 30th, Scarborough Renaissance Festival® will pay tribute to our military Servicemen and women. They invite all current and retired Military Service members to receive a complimentary yellow sash to commemorate their service and march in the Grande Parade. Sashes can be picked up at the Village Armory located in the Crown Meadow area of the Festival. A select group of military members will also be carrying a large American Flag along with individual military branch flags in the Grande Parade.

Immediately following the Parade there will be a special memorial and tribute ceremony for our fallen Servicemen and women at the Royal Pavilion in the Holly Field area of the Festival. The Festival is extremely honored to have guest speaker, Command Sergeant Major, William J. Gainey – the first Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – preside over the 2022 tribute ceremony.

As always, active-duty Military members are offered an admission discount of $4 off adult admission when they show their military ID at the Festival’s ticket booth.
