These folks have Renaissance and Medieval costumes. Can't speak to the accuracy of such clothing, but it would likely fit in to your event.

The above stores are the best as far as price and selection.
Here are a couple more...

Unfortunately, they can not be ordered from at this time. They are supposed to be opening a new shop. I've heard the situation is actually economically grim for them right now. Don't know if that's true. Hopefully not.

Take a gander through garbtheworld.com and see if you can put something together from them. They have done excellent work for me.

FWIW - if you're going to start down the reenactor trail and become part of that community I would suggest you begin by studying and emesh youself into one "kind" of person. By that I mean create a personna of someone and learn what kind of character that person would be during the era your group lives in. Knowing the skills or profession of your personna goes a long way to finding, buying, or making the garments.
When I was in the 18th century colonial personna I replicated one of my ancestors who was a land agent to G. Washington. Knowing that allowed me to dress and possess replicated items of that era and items that my ancestor actually would have carried and used in his daily existance.
Unhappily, my ancestor wound up burned at the stake by Simon Gritty (I think?) and a bunch of his friends.
Researching the history is most of the fun of reenacting. For example, in Colonial Willamsburg in 1825 there were almost a hundred different skills or professions operating and advertising in the Wilamsburg paper.. Have fun
