- Owner Dustin Stephens used to be part of the
Texas Renaissance Festival while Waddoups, who hails from England, had
performed at various Celtic weekends. When Stephens decided to start a
festival in East Texas, Waddoups asked if he needed any help.“We try to keep everything historically correct,” Waddoups said.The fair features an English court with King
Henry VIII and his last wife, Catherine Parr. The 300-year-old “Punch
and Judy” show is authentic as is the jousting, he said.“We do full contact jousting,” Waddoups said. “If you take a hit, you take a hit. It’s all real. Nothing is rehearsed.”
