King Richard’s Faire 2017 in Carver MA

King Richard’s Faire is back starting Labor day weekend in Carver MA. It is New England’s largest and longest-running Renaissance Festival, with full days of live, interactive entertainment for all ages. It opens its 2017 season during Labor Day weekend September 2nd  and runs weekends and Monday holidays from 10:30am-6pm through October 22nd.

King Richard’s Faire! Entertainment, exciting rides and skilled games abound on the Faire’s enchanting 80 acre wooded site. You’ll be dazzled by acrobats, aerialists, and jugglers!

Epicurean pleasures, suited for royalty, will tantalize your taste buds with the Faire’s unbelievable choices of truly scrumptious treats. Satiate your palate with giant spit-roasted turkey legs, ringlets of fryes, and boules of chowder or stew. Don’t forget to quench thy thirst with champagne, wine, and brew!

Many of the King’s talented artisans journey from around the globe and have much to offer all who enter the gates. You’ll discover beautiful handspun pottery, fabulous jewelry, and incredible face painting. Delight in period clothing, leather, armor, and moccasins. Be amazed with sword making, glass blowing and portrait painting. Revel in scented oils, perfumes and fantastic psychic readings as you make memories to last a lifetime!

Faire hours are 10:30a-6p every Saturday, Sunday, and Monday holidays, from September 2 through October 22, 2017. Tickets are $32 for adults (12+) and $16 for children ages 4-11. Children under 4 are free, and parking is free.
