A lot of fun with all the interpreters. However, it is expensive to get in and the refreshments and other stuff are ridiculously expensive.

The King Richards Faire is a disappointing middle-age fair that seems to be mostly visited by cosplayers. For them it might be fun, but if you're there for the shows, you'll be disappointed after paying the high entry fee. I've been to other fairs for less money with better shows. The whole thing is a little tacky. The food is... More

My family and I absolutely loved this place. I always heard people talking about how excited they were to go to this faire and I knew a couple of actors. I saw the sign every year on 195 and I've always had an interest but never really knew much about it. Let me just say I've been missing out. It... More

This will be the 3rd time I have gone to king Richards Faire, and we only went because 1, my son has never been and 2, it was Carver day so you get in for free if you live there. I would never pay for a ticket to get it. yes the shows are free, but everything else costs money.... More

We went to King Richard's Faire in September. Plan on a whole day. We were at the opening ceremony which was quite nice. The jousting was really good. The food is quite expensive. You have to buy tickets for the food. The food was okay. The best food was the onion blossom. The turkey leg was not cooked and the... More

I have been wanting to go to King Richard's for years. I finally get the chance to go this year. We had already been planning on going with our three kids and I happened to find a Living Social deal and got a decent discount on the price. Which was great. However, when we got there I was not expecting... More

This was quite an experiencing of jousting, if you do not know the meaning of Jousting or to be jousted you will find out after the event is over. There was some occasional rudeness by the staff members but that must be all in the fun of the experience. Things were quite expensive and the acts on stages were always... More

We visited King Richard's Faire while in the Plymouth, MA area recently and had a wonderful time. The POURING rain all day didn't dampen our enthusiasm for the shows, participants, food or vendors. We did or watched it all - psychic reading, jousting contest, Jack-the-whipper, adult costume contest, turkey legs, lots of beer and more! There are some very, ahem,... More

The reviews on this were very mixed and I went in having an idea of what to expect. I knew this fair would be expensive. Knowing that, it made it hard for me to enjoy. Buying tickets online does not save you money, that will cost you an additional 2 dollars. So buyer beware, save your cash and use it... More
