Escape Reality: Come to King Richard's Faire
Presented by King Richard's Faire
August 30 - October 19, 2014
King Richard's Faire, New England's largest and longest-running Renaissance Festival, announces its 2014 season, to run August 30 through October 19, 2014 on weekends and Monday holidays (Labor Day, Columbus Day). Tucked away on 80 acres of beautiful, enchanted forest off Rt. 58 in Carver, Mass., King Richard's Faire now begins to prepare for its 34th season offering guests a full day of live, interactive entertainment for all ages, including new liger cubs, daring knights jousting on horseback, and eight stages filled with song and dance, stunts and storytelling. Every Saturday afternoon, the King's Stage offers special themed contests and events to add variety to the festival-like entertainment lineup.
Guests can mingle with the King and his royal court, noble and not-so-noble subjects and skilled performers. When as famished as a mud beggar, tantalize taste buds with the Faire's delicious spit-roasted turkey legs, buttery ears of corn, boules filled with chowder and stew, ringlets of fries, and quench thirst with champagne, wine and brew. Shoppers can stroll through the 16th century village filled with the wares of more than 100 unique and talented artisans, including local New England artists. At every turn, guests will encounter fantasy and wonder in our minstrels, musicians, acrobats, stilt walkers, giant life-size puppets, wenches, and more special surprises.
Faire hours are 10:30a-6p every Saturday, Sunday, and Monday holidays, from August 30th through October 19, 2014. Tickets are $29 for adults (12+) and $16 for children ages 4-11. Children under 4 are free, and parking is free. Discounts given to groups of 25 adults or more and private parties can be accommodated (birthdays, vow renewal ceremonies, weddings).
