It’s the Last Huzzah as Scarborough Renaissance Festival® closes out its 2018 season with a grand celebration of music, merriment and magic throughout the Village of Scarborough over the 3-day Memorial Day Weekend, May 26, 27 & 28, 2018!
Step Back in Time for the Time of your Life this Holiday weekend with 27 stages of extraordinary non-stop entertainment including full combat jousting, Birds of Prey exhibitions, a living chess match, fire whips, jugglers, high flying acrobats, sword fighting and a Hoops Enchantress just to name a few. There are 200 shoppes of exquisite crafts and amazing artisan demonstrations. Plus, the Mermaid Lagoon, Children’s Knighting Ceremony, a Grande Parade, Renaissance rides, games of skill and so much more.
On Memorial Day Monday, May 28, Scarborough Renaissance Festival® will also pay tribute to our Servicemen and women by inviting all current and retired Military Service members to march in Scarborough’s Grande Parade at 1pm. Each service member will receive a complimentary yellow sash so that everyone can recognize their service to our Country. Servicemen and women can get details on the parade at the Festival’s Front Gate and pick up their sashes at the Village Armoury across from the Birds of Prey exhibitions by 12 Noon on Monday, May 28.
Immediately following the Parade, there will be a special memorial and tribute ceremony for our fallen Servicemen and women at the Festival’s Chess Field. 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 ticket booth.
