About twenty years ago, my husband and his friends started Spaghetti Dinner. Renaissance festivals are usually only open on Saturday and Sunday, but Scarby is open on Memorial Day Monday as well, making for a very long weekend. One extra day doesn't sound bad, but when you're in costume, in character, in 90-100 degree heat, an extra day makes a huge difference. So our friends decided to cook spaghetti for a few friends on the Sunday night of Memorial weekend. Those few friends turned into a lot of friends and acquaintances, and that quickly turned into us cooking and serving almost 400 people Spaghetti Dinner every Sunday of Memorial weekend. We feed anyone and everyone who works at the festival salad, spaghetti, and garlic bread for free every year. It's a huge event that everyone looks forward to every year, and we wouldn't miss it for anything.
