This past weekend we took 1 tween and 4 teens to this Renaissance Faire. We were able to save on the $29.00 admission by getting a Groupon ($69 for 4) in advance. Once inside we were instantly lured to the smell of fresh baked goods. We approached the SWEETS booth just inside the entrance and were informed that all food... More

Went once with my wife and friends, the tickets to get in were very expensive, the food items offered inside the fair were ridiculously priced. The jousting was fun but there wasn`t much else to do or see except seeing people walking around dressed in medieval wardrobes. We saw & did everything they had in a little over an hour... More

Our group of four including two tweens spent a Sunday afternoon at King Richard's Faire and everybody left having had a good time. This attraction is far removed from an amusement park. If you're expecting wild rides, high tech lights and loud music stick with Six Flags.Think low-key and medieval of course. The rides are man-operated and the pace is... More

The few artisans that are at the faire are very talented and have some nice pieces of art work/crafts for sale ($$$$). The "actors/performers" remind me of somebody you would see on the WWWF and the building/sets are straight from "B" movies. If your into B movies and like the WWWF, this is the place for you, who am I... More

Okay, first off I scored tickets at better than half off so no complaining about the price HIZZA! The food is on par price wise with other festival and fairs. I brought my prince charming and a few members of our court.It was a little tough pushing the wheelchair over the area. A lot of roots, loose gravel and loose... More

My son has special needs and severe food allergies. I tried to bring in whole wheat crackers with sunbutter for him but they refused to let me bring it in. Even after I explained about his food allergies. They don't sell crackers, etc, so it's not like I could have just bought his food at the faire. Everything is extremely... More

For the price of $120 for entrance and food just to begin with is way too high.the stage show actors showed no talent.all the shops sold were costumes and jewelry for fantasy cos play. And nothing for the average person.

Pricing and the cost to do or eat ANYTHING is a rip off. Lines to bathroom troughs are an hour long during peak. A very boring and over priced "disney land" that has "jumped the shark" years ago. I unfortunately live near there and it's impossible to drive route 58 during this ridiculousness.

King Richard’s Faire is an opportunity to enter into a fantasy world, total acceptance, be what ever you want, whether an authentic character from the 1400’s or a time traveler, or a Steam Punk aficionado. Yes, the owners are true “Carni” folk, entrance fee is expensive, food and beverage are expensive, and you are exposed to items for sale that... More
