King Richards Faire is something you just have to see at one point in your life. These people are so into this life, you really get the full experience. The jousting is fun to watch, they have ligers and mud fights. Some can be mildly inappropriate for small children, but it is easily avoided (i.e. cleavage contest, shows with profanity).... More

Unless you are from royalty or a resident of the town and visit on Carver Day, this event is way too pricy. Although it is entertainment and I understand that it comes with a price, their costs are out of line and downright exorbitant. If you must go, pack a picnic lunch and eat in the parking lot before entering... More

After paying too much to get into the faregrounds, every act asks for donations. Every task, or ride costs extra. The food was crazy expensive. Never had enough tickets for food/drink had to keep buying more and then had some left over. Bathrooms were disgusting and smelled like urine outside the fence- had to hold my breathe. Will never go... More

a little pricey but definitely an experience you will not get anywhere else the joust, comedy and tiger show alone are worth the money to me.The tigers show are the same group from T.I.G.E.R.S myrtle beach safari I also reviewed; up close and personal here too. Shop eat drink and be merry!

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
