Scarborough Renaissance Festival

Scarborough Renaissance Festival is slated to reopen this spring, with the season running Saturdays, Sundays and Memorial Day Monday, April 10-May 31.

Advance discount tickets are available now.

Tickets purchased and rolled over from the 2020 season will be valid for the 2021 season. If you still have your 2020 tickets, those barcodes are still valid and simply need to be scanned upon your arrival at the festival during the 2021 season. Information and additional instructions for lost tickets will be communicated directly via email by Jan. 31 to all 2020 ticket purchasers who chose to roll over their tickets to the 2021 season. 

Friends of Faire 2020 rolled over membership/pass purchasers will have their 2021 Friends of Faire passes mailed out starting Jan. 31. If your 2020 Friends of Faire membership was purchased before March 15, 2020, your Friends of Faire companion 2020 tickets have also been carried over to 2021 (and redeemed as noted above). 

Again this year, daily tastings are offered for ages 21 and older. These include wine tastings with Flynn Markley at the Vinery behind the Cat & Fiddle (1 p.m. and 3 p.m. each day), and Seamus’ Beer Tasting Show at the Village Green (noon and 3 p.m. each day). Tasting tickets are available in advance; seating is limited, so patrons are encouraged to purchase in advance.
