Below are some of our blogs, tips and tricks on King Richard's Faire over the years:
King Richard's Faire, New England's largest and longest-running Renaissance Faire, invites guests to its 37th season running weekends from September 1 through October 21, 2018 including Monday holidays (Labor Day, Columbus Day). Tucked away on an 80-acre, wooded site just off Rt. 58 in Carver, Mass., King Richard's Faire is one of the region’s premiere fall events.
Guests are treated to a bevy of delights, from high-flying aerial artists to food fit for a King. The Faire is home to eight stages, a mud show, and a tournament field all packed with interactive entertainment, from musicians and magicians to actors and acrobats. All day, performers engage their audiences and guests stroll the “lanes” of Carvershire exploring all the event has to offer – there’s plenty to do at King Richard’s Faire, from cheering on daring knights jousting on horseback to shopping for handmade wares and games of skill. This year, King Richard’s Faire welcomes a benevolent and beautiful Queen Anne as well as new princess to the royal family. The Faire also welcomes three new musical acts: 3 Pints Shy, Music the Gathering, and Meraki Caravan sharing the stages with fan favorites The Washing Well Wenches and world record-setting Jacques Ze Whippeur. King Richard, Queen Anne and their royal court are up to some crazy antics in this season’s all new musical comedy featured twice daily on the King’s Stage. Brave knights, riding on horseback, will keep you on the edge of your seat as they compete twice daily in challenges of bravery and daring feats of athleticism. Kevin Armour of “Up In Arms” will showcase his juggling prowess; for the first four weekends only, Snorkle the Wonder Pig will make guests laugh and smile with his stunts.
For foodies, the royal kitchens offer oversized bakery delectables, giant turkey legs, bread boules of chowder and stew, seasonal beverages and of course champagne, wine, and brew. In addition to the world famous giant turkey legs, the royal kitchens prepare such mouthwatering entrees as pulled pork mac and cheese, blooming onions and sweet cinnamon buns.
Special events and contests are held each Saturday at 4 p.m. unless otherwise noted, and add extra excitement to fun-filled Faire days. Visit the website (kingrichardsfaire.net) for registration guidelines and restrictions.
