ESCAPE YOUR REALITY, COME TO KING RICHARD’S FAIRE – THE NEW ENGLAND RENAISSANCE FAIRE IN CARVER, MASS. NOW IN FULL SWING
The Faire Runs Weekends and Monday Holidays From September 1 Through October 21, 2018
CARVER, Mass. (September 14, 2018) -- King Richard's Faire, New England's largest and longest-running Renaissance Faire, is now underway for 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 premier 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 new Queen Anne with King Richard XI to the royal cast, along with musical acts 3 Pints Shy, Music the Gathering, and Meraki Caravan alongside fan favorites The Washing Well Wenches, Great Cats of the World exotic cat show, the Sturdy Beggars Mud Show, The Torture Show, and world record-setting Jacques Ze Whipper. King Richard, Queen Anne and their royal court are up to some crazy antics in this season’s all-new musical comedy “Torn Between Two Villans” featured twice daily on the King’s Stage.
Brave knights, competing on horseback, hold jousting tournaments three times daily in challenges of bravery and daring feats of athleticism. New performer Kevin Armour of “Up In Arms” showcases his juggling prowess; Tom Frost performs as “Akordeon by Tomas” accordion show, and for the first four weekends only, Snorkle the Wonder Pig makes guests laugh and smile with his stunts, with the magicians of The Wonder Show delighting guests for the remaining four weekends.
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 pulled pork mac and cheese, blooming onions and sweet cinnamon buns.
Special events and contests are free with paid admission and 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.
