Scarborough Renaissance Festival

Recommended Posts

I have been searching all over the internet for an answer to the most important question I can think of!! What is gluten free at Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie Texas? Has anyone been there? I emailed and called the general manager but seeing as they don't work except for weekends I'm pretty sure it will be a long wait for a response. Since I'm also 6 months pregnant I would like to know if some of their protein dishes are gluten free like turkey legs, grilled chicken, rogue sandwich meat, or anything else!!

Obviously since I've been wheat free since 2005 I know the basics.

Thanks for your help in advance!

I have attended many Ren Faires and truthfully I don't eat there. Everything is questionable and even the turkey leg guy at in my area refuses to answer the "gluten question" on his food. So I pack a bar, apple and get bottled water. :) Oh, and I eat before I go. Have fun!

I ate the turkey leg at our renaissance festival (and I am pretty sure it is the same company that just goes from area to area) and never got sick. My mom ordered the frys at the same stand and it looked like they had some sort of non gluten free coating on them and she almost immediately got a headache so I would definitely stay away from the fries.
