King Richard's Faire is a very fun attraction, set in medieval times. There is almost always something going on, from Knights on Horseback to Buxom Maidens and Gypsies prancing about barefoot on stage.All kinds of shows. You can shoot Archery, Throw a Hatchet, or Eat Huge Bar-B-Q'd Turkey Legs (Their Specialty), as well as shop the many handmade craft booths.... More

King Richard's Faire used to be IT. Like, save up and get your costume on and spend all day hanging out and having fun. Now, well, not sure if it's because I'm older or if it really isn't as great as it used to be...or maybe it was never that great and I just thought it was when I was... More

... it is all up to you! It is your choice. We chose to plan head, to be realistic about expectations and to have fun. Dressing up in a costume is optional, but we like to. We plan and budget money for this trip like we would any other significant family outing. My family manages to save enough loose change... More

I go every year. When you're there it puts you in a whole different world/time. They have so many activities/shows that the day just seems to fly by. Can't wait til next year! Everyone should experience it at least once. You'll get hooked as I did.

I've been going to the faire for over 20yrs now and I can't imagine autumn with out at least one trip to King Richard's Faire!! Between the shows, vendors, libations and food it's easy to spend a whole day there with family or friends! Happy 33rd Birthday! Here's to many, many more! See you next year!

I love this Faire,and all the performers. People in costume acknowledge each other as they pass by,which is one of the things I've always loved about this place. I consider it my home away from home and I'll keep coming back as long as I'm able.

I really find King Richard's Faire to be a great place to visit with friends, family, and lovers. I'll get the negative comments out of the way, first. The only things I dislike is the food ticket system and how pricey the food is. You always have a few tickets too many, or are a few short. If they let... More

I had a horrible experience. The people are even worse. I was singled out of the crowd for having a stroller and searched for food. When asked why I had to take apart diaper bag I was told it was for safety. After that I had said I was not going to buy any thing from them with this kind... More
