For the last few years during the fall season I didn’t stop hearing about King Richards Faire, everyone was going or had previously gone. Now that the boys are a couple years older we decided to take the 90 minute trip to Carver, MA. We packed a lunch to help cut down on costs and ate it before we entered the park as there is no outside food allowed in the park. Also make sure you bring cash with you as credit cards are not accepted at the gate, but there is an ATM available.
We decided to bring a single stroller and I’m glad we did as Trevor’s little legs soon got tired. There are a number of rides and skilled games throughout the 80-acre site, most of the games cost between $2-$3. There are over 100 talented artisans that sell fabulous jewelry, leather and armor, period clothing, moccasins, perfumes and scented oils. There are also a number of artisans that offer painted portraits, hand-spun pottery, sword making, face painting, and psychic readings.
Throughout the day you can find entertainers performing on the eight stages. We were able to watch fire-eaters, acrobats, and show with tiger cubs. I was amazed at the fire-eating, and the boys enjoyed seeing all of the baby tiger cubs.
If you have time, try to visit the Tournament Field during the select show times to watch the The King’s Tournament. It was pretty packed the day we visited, but we were still able to find a seat close to the field. The King’s Tournament was a favorite of both of the boys, and they enjoyed watching the knight go head to head. They were quite excited and jumping for joy when the knight in our quadrant won.
