Just about everything is an added cost and VERY expensive! I left totally broke that day. It was good because it was something a little different, but won’t be going again anytime soon because of how expensive it was.

We had a fabulous time at King Richard's faire! Wonderful entertainment, games such as axe toss, archery, darts, etc...the parade was fun. Lots of patrons dressed up for the era. The food is very pricey though & there were alot of pesky bees at the picnic area. The best part was the jousting competition. So exciting! We felt as though we had stepped back in time.

About King Richard's Faire

If you venture into the woods this fall in Carver, Massachusetts, you'll stumble upon a very surreal sight—knights thundering past on powerful horses, fire-eaters swallowing flames, fairies dancing, and men sword-fighting. It's not a portal to the past; rather, it's the annual season of King Richard's Faire, the New England Renaissance Festival, which entertains people every weekend in September and October.

The faire unfolds across 80 wooded acres, amusing visitors with performances on eight stages, games and rides, and The Gaming Glen, where guests can ride the Wonder Wheel and test their 16th century skills by throwing axes or aiming for a bulls-eye on the archery field. Faire-goers, many of whom dress in period costumes, can also watch knights battle on horseback while eating giant spit-roasted turkey legs and sipping frosty brews or wine. Stop at a jewelry booth or the apothecary shop, meanwhile, The Remembrance Shoppe yields many worthy souvenirs.
