A Renaissance Faire to Remember
As New England’s most popular fall event, King Richard’s Faire draws over one hundred thousand revelers every year by offering something for the whole family to enjoy. From performances by actors, dancers, puppeteers, jugglers, minstrels, mimes, magicians and musicians to the unique hand-made wares crafted by artisans on the premises, audiences have been delightfully entertained for over twenty-four years.

Spanning 80 wooded acres in Carver, Mass., this recreation of a 16th century marketplace at festival time showcases entertainment by royalty and beggars, highwaymen and guards, knights and wenches, swordsmen and soothsayers throughout each day.

Patrons are challenged by the Royal Games such as archery, the test of strength, the axe throw and many more! Watch knights jousting on horseback, beggars eating mud, as well as the Royal Zoo, which houses rare leopards, lions and tigers. Eat and drink like a king while the Royal Chef satisfies many palates with his authentic "Renaissance" delectables and brews.
