King Richard's Faire is a lot of fun. There are great performances and demonstrations, there is a lot to see, and lots of interesting food. The entrance fees and the cost of food are very high, making this cost prohibitive for a lot of families. The food and drinks are purchased by food tickets, which you haev to purchase in... More

We had a mostly good day. However, it does get pricey! But a lot of the shows were funny and entertaining and my niece had fun. She liked doing the wax hand thing.

On the surface King Richard's Faire seems like it's pretty expensive at about $30 for adults and it is if you don't spend a full day there. Each year there is a theatrical play that takes place in various areas of the kingdom. It starts outside the gates just as the faire is opening so you'll want to get there... More

I love King Richard's Faire; I've been going since I was a little kid and will always love it. Let me start with the negative. KRF is EXPENSIVE--do not walk in with less than $50 cash per person; lots more if you are a big eater or drinker. $30 of those dollars will go toward admission (adult; kids are about... More

This place is fun but the novelty wears out after a couple of trips there. Extremely expensive (about $30.00 per adult and 16.00 per child) Food and beer is pretty pricey too. don't wear any good clothes and wear comfy shoes. This place is all dirt as well as the parking lot.

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
