King Richard’s Faire, New England’s largest and longest-running Renaissance Faire, invites you to escape reality during its 36th season, running September 2 through October 22, 2016 on weekends and Monday holidays (Labor Day, Columbus Day). Tucked away on 80 acres of enchanted forest off Rt. 58 in Carver, Mass., King Richard’s Faire offers guests a full day of live, interactive entertainment for all ages.
Guests will enjoy daring knights jousting on horseback and eight stages filled with song and dance, stunts and storytelling. Every Saturday afternoon, the King’s Stage offers 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, enjoy 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 New England artists. At every turn, guests will encounter fantasy and wonder through minstrels, musicians, acrobats, stilt walkers, giant puppets, wenches, and more.
To celebrate the grand season opening, we’re giving away five pairs of passes that can be used during Labor Day weekend, September 2, 3 and 4th!
Once again, Forces of Geek is excited to be involved with the judging of one of the upcoming themed weekend costumed contests, which we’ll be announcing details at a later date!
