Everything is bigger in Texas … even their Renaissance festival! In fact, the Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, TX, has an average attendance of 200,000 “rennies” each year. And as Adam finds out tonight at 10|9c on Fandemonium, these renn-fest goers are some of the most imaginative and devoted superfans he’s found so far.

From the 22 stages holding over 200 performances, to the more than 150 cast members (most of whom are volunteers!) who bring the festival to life, it’s worth a trip to Waxahachie for the chance to travel back in time to the year 1533.

Did we mention the turkey legs? Or steak on a stake? Or the mead?

If we’ve convinced you to lace up your corset/don your codpiece (not required), then check out our Waxahachi, TX, travel guide for tips. Or check out the Renlist for a list of Renaissance festivals near you!

Not feeling persuaded, yet? Then tune in tonight for an all-new episode of Fandemonium at 10|9c, and you’ll be joining a joust in no time!
