Visitors revel in the recreation of the Age of Enlightenment with artisans that proffer blacksmithing or leatherworking and performers roaming the streets. Events such as jousting tournaments entertain crowds, and cooks prepare huge turkey legs or hearty soups for guests.

King Richard’s Faire

Trumpets blare over the fairgrounds. As the king and queen ride through town, peasants and shopkeepers all kneel immediately, verbalizing praise and respects to their liege lord. Meanwhile, a man in shorts stands amid the crouching peasants eating a turkey leg the size of his arm as his kids tumble off the Jacob’s ladder across the dirt road. This is but a snapshot of the special moments at King Richard’s Faire, a renaissance festival that gathers period artisans, performers, and food merchants to celebrate the Age of Enlightenment along with visitors.

After a bit of practice throwing axes, visitors can stroll in optional costume to see fortunetellers, cobblers, and blacksmiths who have mastered ancient crafts. Knights ride to battle on the tourney field to win the king’s and crowd’s favor, and eight stages, a tournament field, and a mud pit bring in acts ranging from minstrels and jugglers to fire eaters and exotic animals.

King Richard's Faire

If you venture into the woods in the 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 King Richard's Faire Renaissance festival, which entertains people nearly every weekend in September and October.

The faire unfolds across 80 wooded acres, amusing visitors with performances on eight stages, games and rides, and a Gaming Glen. Here, guests can ride the ferris wheel and test their old-timey skills by throwing axes or lulling a dragon to sleep with a bed-time story. Faire-goers, many of who dress in period costumes, can also watch knights battle on horseback while eating giant spit-roasted turkey legs and sipping frosty brews or wine. A stop at a jewelry booth or the apothecary shop yields souvenirs.
