This place draws some of the scariest looking people around; satanists, tattoo and piercings-laden drug addicts and strippers. Not at all family-friendly. Don't bring the kids to this one.

My family of four has been going to KRF for the last seven years, usually two or more times per year. We start to look forward to the faire around August, getting our costumes ready and getting a group together. The faire is jammed full of activities and shows, giving you a full day of entertainment. The ticket price is... More

We were there for an hour before my one year old son got hurt one a manual ride that broke during the ride and sent us flying. The management treated us like kryptonite. They would not pay for any medical bills or even help with my deductible. THEY WOULD NOT EVEN REFUND THE TICKET! They blamed the ride operator as... More

If you have never been to King Richards Faire it should be on your must do list. the price is a little up there but you can get coupons from the paper or sometimes on Groupon or Living Social site. The show with the big cats is incredible, they are right there in front of you, no cage. The kings... More

The Faire returns every fall with a mix of jugglers, costumed "renaissance" figues, jousts and food and shopping. It is alwys busy and parking may be an issue unless you arrive early. Plan on spending at least half a day if not a full one to take everything in. Definitely bring the kids!

The last time I went to the old Faire was in 2007 and all I remember is the jousting so this time I vowed to pay more attention to the awesome costumes and go to some of the shows. I feel I accomplished that and had a really fun Faire experience. First off, if you get there when it's first... More

My wife and I like doing King Richard's Faire every few years. It is always a lot of fun. Looking in on the different shops, the good food, beer by the yard. Jousting is quite fun as well and they have shows going on during the day that was a blast to see. The tiger show is exceptionally fun to... More

This was my first time there and was really excited to go as well. Putting aside the entry cost and the food cost ( yup the food was really pretty bad too) not to mention all the rides also had token signs so I assume you needed to pay for the rides on top of everything else. I must say... More

There are lots of interesting shows to see here: the sword/fire juggler, the big cats shows, the washer women, and the jousting shows. It is great fun for adults and kids. The food purchases are all done through a ticket system where you have to buy tickets in increments of $5 and then use the tickets to buy your food.... More

I have watched the ads for King Richard's Faire on television for years and finally made the trip there yesterday. We arrived around 12:30 and though there were hundreds of cars in the parking lot, the Faire wasn't overly crowded. It is set in the woods with plenty of room to roam around. There are several sideshows happening at the... More
