If you've been looking for an opportunity to meet other DFWCG members, this is it! We'll be attending the Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie on Sunday, May 15th for a day of food, fun, and (of course) COSTUMES! We'll meet up at 11am in the shady area under the trees just inside the front gate. Look for the DFWCG banner. We'll wait there for about 30 minutes, then head onward into the festival grounds. This is an informal meetup, and as such there's no particular schedule or itinerary. With so much to do and see, attendees should feel free to come and go as they please! We'll do another group meetup in the shady tree area around 3pm for anyone who misses us in the morning.

It’s that time of year again – time for the Georgian Picnic! With an afternoon filled with charming Rococo and Regency costume, delicious food, fun period games, and lively conversation, it’s easy to see why this has become one of our most popular events! Bring your favorite picnic foods, or if you’re feeling adventurous, try your hand at an 18th Century recipe! All attempts and interpretations of 18th Century costume are welcome, from exacting recreations to dastardly pirates!
Our party will be held at River Legacy Park in Arlington, next to the Elm Grove Pavilion in the back of the park.
Address: 701 NW Green Oaks Blvd, Arlington, TX 76006
Bring blankets, chairs, food, games, family, and friends!

We're hosting a weekend getaway with fellow costumers! We hope you'll join us October 8th - 10th at The Duchess Inn in Van Alstyne for three days of socializing, relaxing, and learning at a beautiful and historic location.
Room is included in the price of your ticket. Please note: some beds are upstairs, and bedrooms will need to be shared (multiple beds to a room.) Meals will be potluck, or you can choose from several nearby restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance of the inn.
There will be a coffee maker, an ice maker, a refrigerator, and a microwave available as well if you prefer to bring your own food and drinks.
The hands-on portion of our event will take place in a large activity space that includes your own personal table and ample electrical outlets.
There is also a cozy living room beautifully decorated in the Victorian style.
