Scarborough Renaissance Festival

Catherine Downes
In the words of Simon & Garfunkel, are you going to Scarborough Faire? If you’re into dressing up like a wench and gnawing on gigantic turkey legs, you really ought to be. This festival celebrating all the glory of the renaissance runs annually from April through Memorial Day and draws tens of thousands of people decked out in full-on medieval regalia to witness everything from jousting knights on horseback to turtle races. If you happen to be in the market for a full suit of chain mail, you’re in luck -- tons of vendors are on hand hawking their handmade wares.
