Handmade Hats, Feather Headwear, and Costume Accessories for Renaissance Festivals and more.

Renaissance Festival Shoppes

For over 30 seasons Dragon Wings costume accessories and feather finery have been available at seasonal Renaissance Festival shoppes. 

The information below will give you an overview of the Ren Fests where we are vendors.  


Imagine a small 16th century village in England where the King has come to visit and all the folk for miles around have turned out to celebrate. 

It's like a medieval State Fair with jousting, dancing, stage comedy, Shakespeare, axe throwing, musicians, artists, and more.  Ren Fests are also a tremendous place to shop for unique arts and custom clothing.  These juried art shows feature some of the most talented craftspeople we've encountered!

Most Renaissance Festivals operate on weekends only, and many are multi-weekend events.

Scarborough Faire and the Maryland Renaissance Festival are vast villages with 100 to 200 large permanent structures and multiple stages featuring entertainment.  Pictured below is the Dragon Wings Booth at the MD Ren Fest.

Our Maryland Renaissance Festival Shop - open weekends only Aug 24 to Oct 20 in 2024

There's undeniably something magical about the Maryland Renaissance Festival. 

Several factors include time of year (summer ending, holidays coming), location (a beautiful wooded village near Annapolis, Baltimore, and D.C.), the incredible variety of quality entertainment and the participation of thousands of costumed patrons, the ever-growing fan base (we encounter excited new patrons weekly), and the enduring efforts of Fest management to improve the experience each year for both attendees and participants.

Easily found near the front gate, Dragon Wings booth is the fourth building on the left.

Debra Hathaway opened her first Renaissance Festival artisan booth in 1991 at the Maryland Ren Fest. At that time Dragon Wings was located on the boardwalk in the newly expanded back area of the Festival. A tremendous opportunity led to relocating to a shop near the front gate and in 1995 the original small structure was incorporated into the much larger building you see today.

In 1994 Dragon Wings purchased this interesting structure at Scarborough Faire. The booth was built by chainsaw artists Big T, Hobart, and others many years ago. It still features two small wood carvings by Hobart.

Scarborough Faire, Waxahachie, Texas will be open weekends only from April 6 through May 27 in 2024. Lovely springtime weather in Texas brings fun, fun, fun at Scarborough Faire Ren Fest near Dallas/Fort Worth. 

In 2024 we will be offering several new styles of Men's and Lady's Hats!  Our reimagined Cavalier hat comes in Sm, Md, Lg, and XL, it is extremely lightweight, comfortable, water resistant, and can be colorful.

Dragon Wings is now booth #338 , but still in the same location in the Pecan Grove across from the Pasta Palace and the Queen's Kitchen.

From the Festival main entrance you would follow the path to the right, passing the bakery and crossing a bridge into the Pecan Grove. 

Continuing straight you will soon be captivated by the aromas of amazing Pasta and German foods, at this point you should be standing directly in front of our shoppe!

If you arrive at the Jousting arena without having spotted our shop, trying turning around and looking to your left.

We're hiding behind a pecan tree.
