Scarborough Renaissance Festival® is open Rain or Shine!
Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to receive weather tweets and updates each Festival day throughout the season.
The resident wizard has proclaimed there will be no rain during the annual Scarborough Renaissance Festival®, but should you be favored with some liquid sunshine, sun slicks and umbrellas are for sale at the souvenir shoppes.
Souvenir Programs are available at the Gate and our Souvenir Shoppes for $3.
Programs include a map of the grounds (including restroom locations), a schedule of entertainment, a list of shoppes by category, pictures of our entertainers, FAQ’s, a list of our pubs and taverns and a list of the food that is available throughout the village as well as other information of use to our patrons.
The management discourages the use of weapons as costume adornments, as the safety of our patrons is our utmost concern. Any weapon adornment must be “peace-tied” and otherwise protected so any sharp edges are covered, and so it cannot be drawn or wielded while on the grounds. Scarborough does not allow open carry and have the 30.07 code posted at the entrance to the Festival.
Due to the wide variety of potential “weapons” each item is handled on a case-by-case basis when the patron enters the festival. The Front Gate personnel determine what will and will not be allowed into the festival, as well as how it will be “peace-tied” and protected before the patron enters the festival. To avoid your weapon being held at the entrance gate until you depart the Festival, we advise that you do not wear weapons as costume adornments.
Security personnel will monitor the wearing of weapons on the festival grounds. On violation of our weapons policy, Security personnel may confiscate any weapon and expel the violator from the festival grounds. Southwest Festivals, Inc. reserves the right to exclude a patron/participant from carrying or wearing a weapon.
